Welcome to NASCAR hotspot podcast. I'm Herstroy, drum by Kaden, and Chris Nick will join back later, but today this is a special episode because well, will not only be going over a wild weekend at Talladega Super Speed Bay, but you also be joined by road racer Andy Lally this week. So this is a busy episode, and can't we talk about the weekend? So how is everyone's live spen? It is going good. And then we tried to stream and then we got almost soon getting it. Were not right. Sorry that that it's great. We were going to get all heed that. We're like yeah, we're streaming. This kind of be the biggest string ever of all time, and then it's like, I don't know, copyright. Then we we should actually happen. I'm missed that. We actually got shut down for copyright. Yeah, sure, was in the middle. So we were like getting it started and then it says try out, like an email. I got an email. It isn't like a really like direct email abury, but it said if I haven't deleted yet, all right, feel like we're gonna do it without the race on the screen. We've got to do it, like all three of US yeah, I'm going to say it right out of the way. Wasn't the best race of the season and I was kind of I was just a little bit disappointed with a race. So all it was good. Don't get me wrong, it was good. It just wasn't the best Talbega race we've had with that backage by far. Agreed it wasn't the best race of the season. Yeah, it's still better than day twenty five hundred, no doubt, but it it was okay. I was like it was. I mean, obviously it is better than most races the season, but in terms of with this package high spoilers, you know, it wasn't really all that for me. I put it probably bottom two for races with the new package at the super speed worth. That makes sense. It's fair. Yeah, I get yeah, that's true, because what we had two thousand and nineteen and now is this package that we were yeah, two thousand and nineteen, I think of spring, was the first one with the package. Yeah, and then two thousand and nineteen fall that race. No, because this one has horse power. Then two thousand and nineteen, two thousand and twenty, and this is two thousand and twenty horse but yeah, so two thousand and twenty this year. Yeah, I probably see them that it's the second worst in Daytona and February being the worst one so far. And Yeah, I mean all four races last year. I would consider Oh, coop five race races last year Bruins. They were. Yeah, I'man. We're definitely JENER. They too, race is so speedways. Yeah, they twenty five hundred was so good. How like gut spring, amazing finish. It was carnage, but it was an amazing friends carnage. They tell him a summer was my favorite race last year. And then this fall pal they raise. Although was very controversial, I think it was still a really good race overall without the controversy. Yeah, and then even in two thousand and nineteen, I know it's a kind of like a very like a similar kind of different factices like the fall, the fall dagger race was probably better than the rest of them. Yeah, I agree. Fall. I love that race. I was actually, as an am, watching bits of it to that. Yeah, I was somethre. We're wonder raising the one time this did I rain. The one time I didn't rain at a race, I stayed at no, actually had to stay till one day. Yes, stick did rain, rain. When you said it, when you said I was there earlier, he said, like you in the chair or something. I didn't believe you. I've I completely forgot you rather what hour. That's pretty good. Together that day told a summer of last year were like the two best races in my opinion. Yeah, yeah, Daytona summariser is just such a vibe, honest, all of it, all four of them last year, and then day a fall of nineteen. Those are probably the best five races of the Genesis for super speed. Rays was. Oh, yeah, I mean twenty seven two thousand and eighteen. No, no, no, Onand and eight twenty the cooke for yeah, that one wasn't really it was a good race overall. I'd say is the best of the two thousand and eighteen races. Yeah, but I'd say it was. It was done. It was. Yeah, I didn't. Doesn't touch this two thousand and seventeen. I really can't remember any of the the forest head far race. I know, I know you choose to I know you choose to ignore the five hundred to two thousand and seventeen. For me, sad everything in tylating look likes. Who to go? Oh my God, like two or three to go and I feel so a pretty good race. I like super...

...speedway. A few mileage finishes. Yeah, I just like super speed. Wait, I like yeah, for the most part, better than short tracks in my opinion. Dip. Yeah, but they're they're both better than intermediates. Yeah, intermediates have been time durable this sure that happens, too bad. This year has what you want. We've have two. We had homestead and Vegas. Atlanta to so three day alanna was scarbage, I mean fish. So complain, didn't. And then we're going to canvas. That's going to be I hope that's a good race. I hope that the others we could be the only day Franks. Last Las Lass in the days. Canas was a change in the day. I think that. I think the planoff for the night should be shut check. That's what I'm if it is actually Nope, oh, it'll end at night, probably three be no, same time, three clock Sundays. Yeah, you know, three's. It'll be the sun of time down tremendously by then. So so let's get on to the races. Were going to start with the exfinity race, which was a, you know, a disappointing end, but it's kind of like how NASCAR goes, you know, rains every week and he's got to help make it through the finish and that's time. We didn't but Um, I missed most of the race, but a pretty uneventful Justin Haley one stage one and no Gregson Stage two, and there was no cautions or anything besides the stage cartions until lap seventy six, when Josh Barry Smote the blue with the blow and tire and stuff like that. Get back going and it was a fight between the burtons. Here's some burning Jim Bur and Frankfurt leaves Austin Cindrick to on that area and jet burn took the lead before crash was caused by a Joe grapht junior behind him. Oh Bad, honestly, yeah, bad. He was a I don't even know what he was doing. He didn't have a blow tire because if you hadn't known tires tone his blow, I think it's tires like going down at the story were starting to court. He's going down, but like if it was going down at the slow rate. You know, I would have expected him to not you know, completely drifted up the track right into the pretty much the whole back half of a field. killed so many driver's days. I mean it was gonna rain anyway, so it really didn't matter. But yeah, if you would have bought your race front by then you weren't going to have a chance. Yeah, way. I mean it still would have been nice to see how the race would have played out if there wasn't a caution. Then rain, you know. Yeah, he's this crush. took out big players such as Michael and Net, Brendan Jones and Tie Dylan and under cost were about it. Oh, yeahs and so on. Mocky this season, I'm just gonna say that, like he's had he's actually had the's a, I think they said during the broadcast. He's finished inside the top five like four times, but he's finished outside the top twenty like four times. Yeah, it's been very hit or miss with him so far. Yeah, yeah, it's I'll stick at tie Dolan, which is season has gone way worse than anyone else. Has a lot of bad luck and it's kind of sucks. I feel bad, but I mean I was never really a a fan of them. I'd say, like he was only used neutral. I would say I cheered for him in the day Tona, not the day five hundred when he got the ride, and day Cona. Yeah, the duels. Yeah, the duels. But, like, I'm also talking expanity. I shared from then because massive, until I got the one and then I'm like yeah, his teammates and everyone else, literally three quarters of the field, pretty much handed Austin Sandric the win at that point. No, yeah, he was the only other like truly competitive car that could be up front at that point from Mafu is good. Didn't ret MOFITS which expanity points? Yeah, yeah, dumb ass. No, no, this is still early in the season. No, you know, this part was that he was in trucks points to begin with. Well, he did it to himself because he supposed to run exfinity and then he switched to trucks right before the season started. And now that there would this is just about halfway for the exfinity regular season and he's just now switching his point. There eight races in out of like thirty three. That's in the season, I think. Yeah, so they still have another what? Just about another two thousand and eighteen races to go. He can. I think he can point his way in. I don't think he will in his way in. You need to now because because you think at like yeah, it doesn't...

...get like top fives and top tens. That really I feel like every time I've watched he'll run up front and then something will happen to him at the end of the race. So I don't know. Right now he sits at twenty three points. He is forty five and the exfinity Seri standings he has the worst points then our favorite driver in all of existence, cody where M anyways, rain came in and Nestor called the race like ten minutes after they rode fight the race. So a Jeff Burton is a first time exvinity winner. Well deserved. I mean, no one really. I mean we're all like disappointed as they called the race. I mean like you can't do much else, but like we're all happy that job gotta Win. You know, at least it was like yeah, burden, you know, could have been like Austin Syndric, hey call, hey, Hey, will I Austin syndric winning is bad enough, but then calling a race for Austin Cyndric to win. You know, that's worse. You know, like to Saturdays, get up front. Hey, yeah, he's only got two wins this season. I thought, I thought he was going to win with twenty races. No, he's disappointed us. Easi, I will, I'll be the first thing says sorry. He only only thinks that. He only leaves the extrey series by sixty points. But in terms of wins, you know, everyone said he was gonna win every race. Everyone said it was in the bag. He's got to win it. Does one of that they took? I'm one is those. Yeah, one is also a Daytona. So I'm not saying. But are then the really notable finisher? I don't think there really are. I mean Ryan so got a top five, Brandon Brown seventh, and see, you need a bit? Tell me. True's got eleven to me. He'll free from there. So its melee winning the race. There's anyone. But I'm happy about not winning. It's just I mean it's a calling car, but like, yeah, that's not hate. Yeah, nobody likes Haley or am and, except I don't really want. I don't. I don't like almoning belt. Honest, he's probably like bottom five expanity for me shure. Do you have anything like? I'm a bit of an Almoninger Fan. Yeah, I mean, I mean when I'm in and ripping for you. Come driver, laer. What Cooker Bush here do I hear missing the PLA later, later, get there. Don't start with me. He's a player flock. I don't care. He's all right, I'll be sure to click that. I am eating that. He's easy making it. I don't care anyone says he's making it loses out to dependedetto like what a woman got. If you MISSUS Kibededetto at day. Don't Oh, I would laugh. I'm not. I despised Benedetto, but I would laugh. I would just be so funny, you know. Wow, my God, I need some worse to point his way into, or at least when so my prediction is right, and people, because you really stupid predictions on and honestly, he predicting. I know I suck up predictions. Your two predictions that I made for my page we're actually pretty solid so far that I've done. Such x would have a bounce that gear, and I guess that's that's happening. I mean he's going back to two thousand and nineteen or two thousand and eighteen. I would I want to say that extra ten. He's not two thousand nineteen. Two Thousand and nineteen. Trix was another kind of insane. He got like seven wins. I ate seven or eight wins. I think six. Now we did not get six. I'll listen. He did get yeah, ob I guess he ended up getting Richmond. He Got Martinsville and then on top of that you got Richmond one. That's seven. Okad eighty ninety did get seven. Okay, I thought I get six. Anywhere's gonna move. Went to the Cup series. Raised the Guy Coo file hundred nine got Bob. We can just start off with Larson's engine going open. Yeah, so w w to take the ASIE. Neither of your guys. Whenever he saw don't know why you're exciting like that. I don't expect Turex to win all. There's right. How they're gonna talk? Only two tracks. I don't expected to win it. I'd hand wrist first those wres, but he got booted off track. As much as I want to say I really predicted all four of our fantasy drivers would wreck. All four of them except Newman really was in contention for the lead at some point. Yeah, chasting was first time. I'm going to say this was low key impressive, like you can...

...write somethingroply more on this week. He did throws and then he gets wrecked. Going to us. He basing got wrecked. Bro. He didn't even he didn't even get touched the whole entire time. He's under Leel on, blow to the yellow on. So the race gets under their way and, you know, were some bosn engine and he's out quick. I heard there was like some like metal thing in front of the radiator. That's just like killed the car and blue the eman fired tonight. Yeah, so we move on that forty joey geese and a Davy Ellison's tribute, you know, Joey Ki Stuff. We saw this coming. I think he blew tires something, but he spun. Yeah, minor damage, but I'm not gonna say is day was over. I mean like I don't know his day. Kind of continue from there and then come into the end of Stage one. Next incident. Yeah, you're all racing hardfually. I you know, I've been kind of torn on whether this was in racing incident or a stupid movement. I'm kind of settled on. It's more of a racing incident because Haymon look low. Lagana kind of like he didn't throw a big block, but he kind of moved down. They didn't. I was kind of went down like Stan I was kind of handling in a weird spot, which kind of got Hamdlo that sed up and he hit like it was kind of just a racing instant called pushing, going through the Ford and effect. Yeah, what it was? Yeah, and which would send Lagano like the very first big and then ended in a flip, and I was Joeyana. I was kind of glad to see him flip. Not gonna lie, Sin. Has He ever flipped? Yeah, Dover do nine. That's all I forgot about. Yeah. So, yeah, he flipped and I kind of just like I was really calm with that. I was like, Hey, look at the guardage is flip. Yeah, I was kind of happy inside, but you know, like hey, don't want to jump the gun unless he just died, but you know, he's okay. Yeah, there. Raised moved on and like ONA did not win and he was not close to when some happy with that. Well, no shit, he was out of the race. Yeah, good, mass mad anyway, betted that pick up first career. Stage one. Yeah, also involved that wreck. Was A stethouse. You got damage rate over BUBBA's one, right over. Bubber didn't honor it. Did BUBBA got minor damage, but I didn't affect him at all. We move on and Stage two was a pretty quiet a lot of hard racing until the final few laps where Bubba Watson the lead and he is blocking a lot and really being really aggressive for the stage win and no one was able to get past them. By you want to, you want to take this trucks fan. Well, Mamma was leading and handling. He got too speeding penalties here at the speeding penalty to come down far road. So he comes back and then he speeds again. So instead of which he was by far the driver who would get his lab back because he was in that pack. He was by far that driver, but he decided, you know, I'm going to race. You know I wanted to get it back. He wants to prove that you know he can come back and win this. Well, I think I'm not really going to bring it blank as last you really I'm gonna Blame Hamlon, because of Hamlin, wasn't doing all that stupid. He was literally going from lane to lane in like with doing stupid move. I just thought I was kind of unnecessary in my opinion. I get it, he's racing for his lab back, but he's gonna get it back anyways. And he throws a block because last he goes up to the top to try and maybe get a run and push from Hamlin, and truex just nails the back of Hamlin and there's a pile of I was Hamlon was involved. I don't think Hammon got much damage. You had a good been a damage. It didn't. It didn't end his race, but he was able to continue, but he was a few ups down and wasn't able to hang with the pack really good. Sure, so heavy here was the wall. Had on super speedws the wall head on and kept going. I was impressive. He didn't hit a harble. You hit the wall. Hide on. Fallowen was involved. That would end his day. Elliet it was involved, iron and Byron evolved to yeah, and that was chas some barn able to continue to mention before this. But Kurt Bush um him. He well, what's the problem? A break lines or something like that, and garbage to me as well. anyways, his car on a Lut on fire and they got it like fixed up and everything and all cleared away, but he was like six laps down when he came back on track. You know, he was kind of just there. Let's talk about let's talk about Kurt Bushes season. I don't you know, like terrible out to drivers, Kurt Bush and mad to Benedetto. My...

...the Benetto put no, wait, Shush, Matt de Benedetto was what thirty second in points, and what is he now? Six, seventeen, seventeen. He's twelve points out of cut line right now. Isn't hurt Bush behind them? He made one point. He has point, one point. So a Kurt Bush fan down there. What's your excuse this time? Yeah, you turn it away from the camp. Terrible look. I could go through every race until you terrible laugh. That's happen every race. All right, but explain why? Explain, explain why. The Benedetto, who was what thirty second in points after three weeks or some oh, he's ahead of him. Is the good? The BENDETTO is a stage man and multiple top tens in top fives and your pushes multiple and Kurt Pushes Multiple Mechanical feelers and getting wrecked by Denny Hamlon and bad cars. So, oh no, he's a ter. Blame in the car. She's gonna start grown. Remember, wait for Jimmy and nasty drivers. The car. No, remember, is even sell sometime was as good as with their cars and he's putting the cars. Now they are they all blame the bad cars now, oh, because Cuz so good. Push is a close because Kurt Push, you're switching back. Should be no, no, no, she's selling her. Even Chase Elliott, even she's Laa, has bad cars and domes, Kyle Orson a bad Carter Richmond, you know, even bowman as bad car. Sometimes it happens to the best teams. So chip can ass you racing as championship caliber equipment, and even they have bad carson. Maybe it's just curved by that contending equipment with the with the good enough Jill Parson, with Kyle large. What I would I would argue Kyle arsh and has been better than Kurt Bush. At Him Gnassy Kyle Arson. They were barely around of a contender other than like two thousand and seventeen. They were barely around of a Cantat Bay. Don't tell me you think that one car and that forty two car driven by Kurt Bush and Ross chat stain. Archie said with I said with the I said with the right drivers, and you know you did. I said I did. Actually, so you could give you the A bad back on the recording. I was tend to scing corning, but still just to prove this entire point. But Um, with the right drivers. Yes, so, like Ross Chastein, isn't been close, but like Kurt Bush, we saw he made the run of it last year and he was putting up a really good fucking window. Ye, lucky way. Yeah, well, he got it with the win, but even in the round of Eight, during it he put up a really good fighting was a top five driver each of the right put of a really good play. He was like eighty eight points back. Well, yeah, he's in the playoff points all the season. That's better. In the regular seas you stay Shud. Yeah, but he's it's still much great actually able to run consite, consistently in the top five, top ten each race that shape. But your Prom I'm sorry, hang on, hang on, weight here. The better examples than de Benedetto was some blameey like the same amount of points as bednit or the Benedetto to the first two or three races. Well, Blainey also has one stages after stage in the stages and wins. Yeah, it didn't. You can't. You can't put that. You didn't. Only one win. He only has one win now. Yeah, and how many stage points he struck the stages at Martinsville? And how many stage wins does he have before the three? You three, these three. So that's three stage points to Kurt Bushes Zero and one way three Amro. That's only good even when Kerboy or something about the wrong talking actual points right now. So even if so, Blaney's above Kurt pushing points because Blainey has been more consistent and been faster and we gain. He's been more assisting. He better. Yeah, OK, Kurt Bush as has been having a lot of bad luck, a lot of mechanical pharaohs, and he had taken out by Denny Hammond. That's all. I'm in. The lost points. You know, he was like plut he was like top, he was like plus forty over to cut line, like five races ago. But after all the bad luck and him having all these mechanical failures at all adds up in the end, and now he's blow a cutout line and I'm gonna say can't do that much a bad when Kurt Bush doesn't something doesn't go wrong even on even that much of a threat. Like when was the last time in the last since he's been with him, Ginassid that's just say he has actually had the best car, not stealing them when at Kentucky, exactly, never having and then I've been the nice driver. He's not not the last like three seasons I've not been said he's been like either. That I've...

...never said he's been the even like a top eight driver. He's been around there, but like he's still like people are sleeping on him. You know, people sleep even with two only sleeping on a guy which the playoffs. I'm not switching back and forth. You people have been sleeping on over twenty years now. I'm not just sorry. You know, carry the one. He's won a championship in the pad US twenty years. Yeah, people, he sleeping on them. Be Kind of you, kind of with a championship. People stopped on Matt Knsas. He's still competed for championship. Want a championship correct? Yeah, you did. Ricky standouts, niors, I had of them on points, and I'm pretty sure Chris Boshers as well. Yeah, they both are a championship lower. I get it. He has had a hang on. Hang on, hang on, let's let's let's ignore Busher and stunhouse, because you know they've been. They've been pretty consistent. Right, even with his win to start the year, McDowell is still ahead of Kurt Bushes. You're, okay, bigger. You guys are comparing a Chippin I see today to a Roush in two thousand and four. Okay, just say one MPIONSHIP, ever. So, no, I'm saying. I said it's ship. I said I said it's sham with the right drive, championship. And if it goes out correctly and the team gets to stuff together and Kirkbush, you know, gain some stuff and they find what they're missing, then then yeah, they're not like, they're not Denny Hamlin or they're not Ryan Blainey level, but they're competing for the round of a. If they get the playoff points they need, it's that's what I'm may not. I think that you could agree, that you could agree that Um Ryan Blainey is championship Equipman. He's not, and you could. You could say the same for all Hendrick, all gives and all Pensky and their championship equipment. But that doesn't mean all the drivers of championship favorites. But with the right order of things and if things work out, then there is a point where they could win the championship, especially with this playoff system, where he could easily steal a championship. Where would you say Kurbbush ranks out of the drivers right now? Would you say he's a round of a driver? Now, would you say around twelve driver? I'd say is around a twelve driver because if you look at the guys are in the pluffs right now, no kids. You're gonna tell me that steenthouse and Busher and, you know, maybe even Dylan are gonna run better than them. We're dealing, they say when they play. Yeah, he's doing loosely. Use dialing loosely, but like, I'm not dying. He's a bad driver. I don't think he's around a twelve driver, though. I'm going to be completely honest you got all four Hendrick cars who are on fire, except Chase Elliott, has been pretty mediocre this season. You've got got more point all. Is He actually? Yeah, he's got six more points of person. Oh, that's surprising. Larsen's gone on pretty bad streak since he lost at Lanta, though. Good. Everything's gone downhill since then. Got All four gibbs cars, I'd say, Kyle Bush, even Christopher Bldman pretty fast. He's been like he's been better than I think most people expected. You got the threepancy cars. We're all championship, Calbur it's what nine drivers. I would say some of these drivers who are in the playoffs right now can just heat up if you include all four Hendrick all for give. Yeah, that's a lab that's key. That's a level. You are her Bush, who I think can make the run of twelve. I'm not saying he won't, I think he can. Why do you think that? Like twelve place car is Kurt Bush, Austin Dylan, guys like that. I would even argue a Chris blusher. The man has been on fire this year. I think right. Says really really tooking tg are like all right last year. This car. Let's just go hard as much as we can. So I think that's what's happening. But those two teams, and honestly even, I would say, a driver like us. He's not in the playoffs right now, but a drivel like bubble wallace, you know, start picking up. Oh, madam we know that car is fast. We've seen that car have speed at short tracks and super speed was kind of really just needed to get fit together everywhere else. But they get speed. I think could be better than Kurr Bush, I think. But mostly these problem is with the amount of road courses we have. He's her Bush, should at no BUBBA or Bubba, oh, all these not good at road courses and there's almost too many of them for him to be able to safely point his way in and not have to worry about other guys...

...winning because, yeah, it's going to be very hard for him if he doesn't win. I mean that's the case with some guys. Are Ready. I mean sure, we're going to air commole, our air cameole. It needs a lot of help. We already know that he needs help. But Oh, fun factors is the first race all this season. Two Stewart hotscars finish top ten and they all finish top fifteen. Actually, yeah, they are finished tough fifteen. I saw someone mention that and they're look cool, looks so George back it's like, Um, no, Telladega, Talladega, does not count. I'm sorry, but when you have Michael McDowell and the Benedetto running for the win it it doesn't count. I'm sorry, Telladega and day told her all about if you can get the right amount of momentum at the right time, s right tries, not gonna like this. Could that twelve driver be Matt de Benedetto? Nah, that's CAP. That's actual cap. Besides, Talladega, he's not. He's has not run consistently top ten sporry. But I can tell you starting to get offended. You're getting aggressive. Yay You guys, because you guys are making fair arguments on it at all. We're getting undy because it's annoying. Is it any yeah, okay, they actually what the race. Oh my God. All right, so we're going to move on. So, Um, you know, we had a good long run. After we had a forty six lass of lung of long runs. You know, we had a pitch strategy and we had guys saving fuel before Quinn Hoff blew a tire something like that in front of the pack and just killed the field. Well, he didn't. You the Quinn how bed c another one of those terrible drivers. Food is so bad. So that bread a caution. That saved a lot. That changed a lot for the race. You know, everyone was good on fuel now and was our run to the finish. We we had a lot of strategy playing to so we had a nine lamp run where all the Pencil Girl Hook all the Pensky cars hooked up and we're draft together and the BEDEDETTO had to lead and it was as yeah, I was was aus so singlephile. And then a caution. What was caution? Listen, oh, correct trect tricks at a flat tire and it did abrief from the tire went on the front stretch and NASCAR's forced to bring it out. So this went to overtime, sponsor by credit one bank, and it was mainly between two pency cars. Well, it was mainly again between the three word for yeah, it's all. It was all the forts. It was caused Laska debtadetto harbor the Ford Than Aaron Jones. I was really what it was. Averic Jones wasn't up there that far. Jones got up to fourth in the final lap and then he got funny. Are Rare corect buddy crack right, okay, okay, because he had a huge run, come into the white or something like that, like he was how are you's gonna win? That's think three. I wish you did. He has so much speed at these super speed was he knows how to navigate them. He's the most underrated super speed wearers on the field. Yeah, accurate. That so because Lavski had a push from who was helping him? Because I was a Bush mark. No, it's McDonald. Was McDonald so because let's get help from McDowell and a debtadetto at help from Blaine, and they were like Tanem Drafton and debtadetto switching waynes to fuck that. And he decided to go high when blamee to not have that bigger run that he had to block hie. And at this exact point, because last get a big run, since mcdallas pushing him, and because Laska got under debtadetto and made the past for the lead, and from there in two, three and four French stretch. They couldn't really get the side and pass him. All. McDowell got him for a second, for like a s what second coming to the trial, there was like a thought in my mind. What if McDowell pulls out and gets it? I would have lost it. I wanta lost it. He Willing Tiger read it without mcdoal would have wonted if biring wing and just push him swing out Oka. I think Byron was thinking...

...it. Mcdowe would get to his outside side drafting hardened and buying with goor on the inside get him. That's what I think Byron was hoping for. But because ask you really just hooked that yellow line. Well, Ot of notable finishers here. So of course McDowell for the third. That's a third top ten of the season, actually fourth, because five hundred and world course and homestead and then this. So his fourth top ten of the season, which is really unexpected to bet adetto end up finishing fifth just, I mean like just it's heartbreaking for him. I wouldn't think that's his proper it's kind of so I would say I was expecting it. I was more expecting him to choke them to map ten tax. Yeah, I would put more money on to Bennett or to choke then to win. I agree. Yea and sink, as Grala calls GROMA. Wow, where did he come from? Ever, I've watched Alea. Yeah, I watched the Restar a couple times and I just watched for his car. Oh my God. At some points it was crazy, like when Surez got knocked up the track, off the track, and that ever scared me. I thought sores was gonna go straight and kill the field and I look like some Naskar heat five mood. You know when someone shoves you under the Apron and you kind of just say you know what, you're not going to make it through the term one and you just go straight. That would that was looking like first woods I at that moment. Yeah, so when swores, when sores got knocked blow to line, the spot is saying like chuck up and check up, and everyone in front of Grala didn't really check up that much. But like Grala hit the brakes a line. He actually lost a lot of momentum. So I had to get to build a lot about that back up. He was like in the back of like the main draft. Yeah, he was on this using you have to look at it. He was also like thirty all race. Same with averyone there Jones are Jones didn't exist until the final restore. We took the lead and we can fully at one point he passed Bubba and swore his swores, ran like mid twenties, all raised, and then he came in the top ten randomly in a really fast car. I wish he didn't get knocked off track, as he would have had like a top ten. Definitely. I honestly wish there was no big RIS. Honestly, if, even if Lugano and True Rex and Bowman and Larris and we're all still in it, I think it would have been a fantastic finish. And even if we gonna works a one, I think we would have had a photo finish. We have figure out, if you'll look on at the end of a super speedily race. I was surprised they went that far, honestly, without wrecking coming into the trial. I feel bad for Jason. First Time I said that. I feel bad for that man. The man ran pretty damn well that whole entire race. He was top ten, I'd say almost all entire race and it's just kind of sad to see him go two hundred miles per hour straight into the wall coming to the line. I was pretty sad. Was the Eric John? No, we don't quite a bit, because everybody got a good video of the of him going into the wall. Everyone's stolen. Yeah, I know, everyone's stole. Everyone stole it and didn't give any credit except me. Poor guy. Move on, Austin Dylan. I think this is third and fourth straight top ten, so props to him. How are you, Gonnamagine Austin Dale not mentioned? William Bayron, hey top ten streak is longer than any Oh, yeah, and stopped taking the longest raid. Yeah, last year I was like you'll getdn't deserve this rideley kick them after the season, but like we this here. He's better than trace Elliot. Oh yeah, Rudy Fu will, yeah, but named Canus. He's feverily was killed the team shower. Shagun house was out of his prime anyway. He wasn't even in his prime in two thousand and sixteen. Yeah, I know, crew chiefs like had like a prime or like any of it. I believe it. Well, yeah, driver can have a prime. Jack can house. He's just not up today with all the new changes. And so if that's what it was got, I mean really, he teams to be having in prime because look at Roush. They were so dominant in the early to mid two thousands and then one guy leaves here, when guy leaves, are and all of a sudden they're mid pack until this year, because that's what it's been. They've been mid packing till this year for the past what, since Edwards left in two thousand and eleven or two fourteen fourteen, twenty fourteen. And even then he wasn't that good because he was kind of average for the last year or two that he was there and he want a couple races, but he really wasn't as good. Yeah, you don't think of buyer and he's kind of pairing with an old friend that...

...he was really good with. Wasn't pretty few his truck, cheven rocks, yeah, chief, yeah, yeah, so it's like they already knew each other. So they were already good with each other at one point. So that did be from buying. I like to see him to do up in Twelve Antone Alfredo. No, yeah, he did. Yeah, hell, I kitty race he raced. He actually finished a race. Do you know? It's crazy. You know, I hate to be so like hard on them. Like he couldn't even stay with the lead pack. And this is like our front row motor sports car. He couldn't even stay with the same car Michael McDowell, who was running like, I swear, like he wasn't even playing the conservative or any that. He literally like because he just doesn't know anything, Cup wise, doesn't know anything. Right, not to be mean, but like racing. I wouldn't say racing. No, not racing, like, yeah, I don't racing, but he has. Has Even had a full year of exfinity. No, no, I mean you had a full year trucks. It was a lastminute decision and I don't blame them for taking the ride whatsoever. It's just it sucks the same not do good. I think front row just needed someone that could fill out the full season in terms of sponsors for that second car, because with him with eye racing. So I think that's a big reason why. Yeah, no way he's going to win rookie of the year, even with how you want see your fighting, Christos. Yeah, okay, yeah, BRESTC is okay. Now he wasn't actual brisk. Was Pretty bad that race. Yeah, the end he was like thirty if al race and thirteen was in. Thirteen is Ryan Newman. He actually got the free pass on that last caution. He was twenty seven. So to twenty seven to thirteen. I would say that's kind of disappointing for him. That's this point for him. Yeah, like his comeback in the last two laughs. Yeah, caution to come have been twenty seven, but also to peas gout to eat them banging. There were curs. Is Lucky Chris is Lucky Newman saved him. Fourteen is rhyme priests. You almost want to stage get a really fast car and like the first half for first three quarters, and J tg is here to stay, like I think many people kind of like they I'm not gonna say they're still going to stand ups don't make the playoffs. I think they're going to be flirting with that colient whole year. Like this team really went from, I'd say, I'll bottom tier, terrible team last year with Ryan pree'st going what for races in a row finishing dead last, and then Stenos was extremely disappointing last year to now both of them are top twenty contenders on a regular basis. It's pretty good even for a part time car. This year's this Ye's been a little bit more chaotic in general, though, so you never know who's going to finish where. One must she got out several got say where you're inside. All right. So well, I shad to Harrison Burton is scuff debut. He was top ten before the last caution and got boot straight online and went to twenty when he finished from the last three start and yeah, really those didn't he fun or something like that? I don't know, I didn't. I don't think so. I thought he did the yeah, he brought them twenty eight, which cup debut. That's pretty much. That's pretty impressive, especially for the car, but it's Talladega. But yeah, that shows a lot for for him. That's about it. You know, everyone else from Im back is kind of yeah, that K yeah, talked about fantasy then. So we do something quick. Yeah, so fantasy. Katon is ahead right now by one point over me and Troy and, Oh my God, like three weeks I was I was like six points behind Chris. It was first. Yeah, everyone, troy and I were the main ones. Like majority of the races so far, nick started off good and then just drop like a rock. So now, going into Kansas, nickle a first pick and he will be choosing from Newman, custer, tricks, Jones or Harvick, whatever the Harvard Harfect I have. I'LL BE I'll be up next because I finished behind troy. Yeah, yeah, so what other races do we have this round? You can just Darlington, shoulder, Charlotte. I...

...think over here, Dover, Charlotte, CODA. You know what, with Kansas running, the high line is fast. So give me Mr Tyler, Reddick, Troit. Good, I have. You have. I'm a roll of Bowman, tricks, custer and Keez Lowski, boom is lasko. Good ones. Um, Bowman's gonna Darlington. So you also have CODA and Charlotte. So and don't get it, they're both gonna Dover. I kind of want to. I want to see because last you for who? I have a gang because, besides, because last game Boman, who Wust to have true REX custers? I'm Rolla shrecks constant Um, don't wander, just pick. I'M A L for this. You've really isn't a good anywhere. Take a sacrifice here. Yeah, just sacrifice in here. Pick, I'm Rolla. I'll risk at all. He's on it. He's on a good streak. Kind of kidden. That does not or that means you cannot take it, am Rolla, because, true, I was not gonna take out. Can you name all my drivers? I just know I'm a terrible chase, chest naing and BRISCO outside of El Morrole Chase, and I'm saving BRISCO for Coda. I think that's an over yere. Dude, this is like the worst possible lineup for caidd chase, Kurt. Don't pick chase. All her friend top five here last year and Oh, I know if I did, I know, if I don't pick chase, chase is going to go out there and win the race. That's how it's gonna be. But I don't want to use chase here because I saw how good he was in the coach six hundred last year coming OK, also for road course to yeah, yes, that's true, but also BRISCO. WHO BRISCO? Where else? Is Re scooting around good? I could just use them somewhere random. I could use them, but I'm a dover. I don't know. Grow. Nope, you think he make your pay. I'M gonna okay, I'm gonna do chasting. All Right, okay, control yourself now. Control yourself now, I'm gonna lose it. We have Andy Lally, who is a veteran road racer. He has won the Rolex twenty four class winds multiple times and he has a pretty good experience in Nascar and he has a quite a bit of success and expinity series too, with a couple top fives. So we're skiing gone with questions from all of us. So this is question I thought of earlier. and Um, so you're very experience with the in Durance races. So when he moved in a NASCAR did having the in durrance phrase is under your belt and know how to did? I can't wear this that well. We're the five hundred mile races like easier, I guess? Yeah. Yeah, so, like a lot of guys that get the work their way up the stock car ladder and the NASCAR ladder, the first time that they do something that long is is when they get to cup. You know, they're used to two hundred mile racers or three hundred mile races, where I am definitely used to being in the car for a really long period of time. will run up to three hour stand so the five hundred can be a long one. You obviously get a hut heck of a lot more yellows there, but we will run like two or three hours, get a few hours break, run two or three hours again and we'll run that through the night like on the twenty four hour, on a twelve hour it's something sort of similar, obviously, just for a shorter time period. So yeah, when when I was running cup it was my cardio was at its peak. You know, I was racing mountain bikes, my Jiu Jitsu practice was was going really well and full tilt. So it definitely made the transition to the to the hot races and to the long races I hike of a lot easier. Yeah, and then we highlight on road racing and during spacing and all that. But was that your first Maine option that you want to get into, getting into racing, or where there other raise you wanted to go there? So from a very young age all I knew was NASCAR. I knew I wanted to be a race car driver from the time I was about five years old on and growing up, you know, in the early s and experiencing that. All I knew was what I either saw on TV or the magazines that were on the shelf at the grocery store, and so I didn't I didn't grow up in a racing family. I didn't grow up in a with people...

...that were even interested in auto racing. So everything I did was was by myself learning through that and I became a massive Nascar Fan. I wanted to be in the Alabama gang before I could point to Alabama on the map, and so my early heroes were we're, Bobby Allison, were Neil Bonnet. I was a huge Richard Petty Fan, obviously everybody was back in the day there, and I became a big Davey Allison Fan as I got older and started racing go carts and stuff like that, and so my opportunity came from to really great people. I played soccer from a very young age, probably about five years old on, until I was a freshman high school and when I was thirteen I didn't get I didn't start racing go carts until I was thirteen years old and I wanted to. My parents just had no interest in helping me out to do that. That's a whole nother side story for another time. But I did finally get a go cart when I was thirteen. Actually I was twelve, is just before my thirteen birthday, and when my parents saw that after the first year it was the most dedicated that I had been to any other thing in my entire life. Then they really got behind me. They thought this was just some dumb fad, something that I needed to kind of just get out of my system, but they saw that I was diving deeper into the mechanical end of things and wanting to learn more and for a young kid that really wasn't interested in that much school work or anything like that, my my desire to learn the auto racing side of things. They were aware enough to be like, Hey, this is actually something that he's driven for, he's driving toward and really has a desire and motivation to work at. They were very cool and became helpful and woke up those early Sunday mornings to take me to the local go car track and stuff like that. Has that progressed? Like I said, it wasn't a racing family so much and as that progressed in my races became more and more and bigger and bigger. The only sport that I'd say I played everything. I still play everything, but I played all casually, all sorts of sports, but I'd still played soccer and I went to my coach when I was fourteen, maybe just before I was fifteen, I think it was fourteen, and I told him. I'm like, Hey, I gotta quit, I'm done, and he was surprised. He's like even playing your whole life, what are you talking about? And I said I'm going to be a race car driver and we race go cards on Sundays and soccers on Sundays and I'm racing too many go cards now and I can't do this. Sorry, racing is taking precedence over everything. He's like, okay, you're going to be a race car driver. How you going to be a race car card and, no kidding, my zero reality comfort, zero comprehension of what really goes on in the in the racing world. I was like, well, probably race go cards for a while and if I can win in that, I'll probably maybe get into some sprint car racing like I see on Thursday night thunder and then maybe, you know, Roger Pensky'll give me a call and I'll either races indie car or stock car. laughed. Obviously is anybody would that's familiar with auto racing and how absurd me skipping all those rungs on the ladder is like I'm going to go go cart racing, world of outlaws, Sprint Cup, Winston Cup back in the day. And he goes, do you know, I'm a crew chief for a local race team and I was like no, what. Like, how insane my soccer coach is a volunteer crew chief for a small local race team. I and and he told me it was. It was Seca and Embra and to local road racing associations and we had a track. I grew up on Long Island in New York, about thirty five minutes outside of New York City East and if you go way out east to like the Hampton's, there was a race track called Bridge Hampton and it was a world famous racetrack, road course, and I just knew nothing about endurance sports car racing and my soccer coach introduced me to a gentleman who owned a local car dealer. My soccer coach, Pete Madsen, introduced me to a gentleman named Walter Simmoninger who owned a local dealership and literally over lunch or dinner at...

...a diner, we shook hands and we did a deal for me to do three races as his teammate and endurance sports car racing. It was a tiny little Toyota, Mr Two hundred and fifty horse power, and that was my jump. I would of that was my jump from go carts into cars and if it wasn't for those two guys both pushing for me and believing in me, I'd be a firefighter in New York City right now. There's there's not a chance I would have made it without a doubt. So it's a cool story. That's how I ended up sports car racing over stock car racing because I didn't have any any people, any connections. And then once I established myself in the sports car side, I would speak to anybody that would listen to see if they'd let me drive their stock cars. That is awesome. That's honestly. Probably I would probably say that it's in terms of just general story, not funny or now you know certain category. That's probably the best coming up store we've had so far of anyone we hit's. It's a legit thing. I mean if people I don't know if I believe in faith or anything like that, but that's a hard one to deny. Right there. They that was that was a pretty wild, crazy time in my life where the stars aligned, you know, and you meet the right people and you get the right opportunities at the right time and then perform well when you get those opportunities. Man, it's crazy what can happen. I it's awesome. That's really awesome. That's crazy. Yeah, honesty, agreed. Anyone else on me to go? Yeah, you can, I know, use fighting at the job. The way to ask what's your favorite motor sport event that you've done in all of your career, like when it comes to any race or whatever that you've done. So the twenty four hours a Daytona is is what I'm known for. That's what I've built a lot of my reputation on. But probably the the most fun I have is in stock cars on road courses. So I wouldn't say the most fun time that I've ever had, but probably the most exhilarating and the most dream like was was my very first Sprint Cup start in two thousand and nine. We were a go or go home car. We were sort of like a second car at Trg. David Gillanders was running full time in the in the in the main car, and they entered me as basically a second car and David and I were both go or go homers. I had done seven truck races and to exfinity races, maybe three exfinity races. It was Bush series back then. And and then the next year they wanted to see if I would do the cup race at the Glen and qualify a second car in and we had just the team had just gotten a new sponsor, tech slayer, which you guys now see on our c our cars, junior's cars and stuff like that. But we were the first people to bring tax layer into in the NASCAR and it was on Gilian's car and I was actually there. My team owner owned a winery, so his winery was on my car and David David's car was a pilot junk. At weekend I remember he was struggling with a bunch of different things and he ended up missing the show and he had gone out probably. So back back then this was two thousand and nine. The go or go homers would go last and so you kind of know what times you were shooting for and we would all go together. So the weather was the closest on the on the stock our stuff. And at Walkins Glen it's single car qualifying. You go out, you come by, you hit one lap and that was it. And my team owner walked up and he goes, David, miss the race. You got to do this. It was like, Dude, I've been waiting my whole life to try and qualify for a Winston Cupp next cup, Spring Cup. You Nay, I want to be in cup. And...

...so I was like, Oh, cool, yeah, it's the pressure I need right before I go out and I'm thinking through my lap and stuff. And we went down and we threw down and we qualified fifteen and there was like maybe almost fifty cars. There's like forty eight cars. There's a bunch of guys going home. So to we out qualify, qualified right behind Tony Stewart. I Out Qualified Jeff Gordon and Mark Martin. It was the coolest thing in the world. So there was this euphoric moment when we I came across start finished. I had no idea. Like I thought the lap was good. I had no idea that. They just started screaming in the radio and I could barely contain myself. You Cross start finish at Watkins Glen and then you go through turn one and then you make a you turn to come up the thing. You go straight to tech and they get out and we got out of the I got out of the car, I heard them screaming, so I knew we made the race. I was just psych that we made the race. And then as I get out of my car, board said comes over and slash me on the back and he goes, good job, top fifteen and I'm like top fifteen, what? And so that was pretty cool and that whole race, that whole weekend, was my the Watkins Glenn. Watkins Glenn Is One New York, so it's my home state. I live in Atlanta now, but it's my favorite racetrack. It's it the short course or long costs up course. I love them both. And so to be able to make my cup debut at Watkins Glenn, at my favorite track, and then stick it in the field like we did under pressure, was was pretty awesome and that was my favorite race. So any of the Stockar road races are my favorite race. The Daytona Twenty four hours my favorite race, but that one in particular was just a pretty amazing moment. I dragged that question down for a while. They're actally for a guy like Boris, had probably be one of the most known or road ringers, and all of the mask are that would now just the off. I couldn't imagine that. That was pretty cool race Watkins Glen in two thousand and twenty two four of us we're gonna be there. So UNFORSO last year before covid the dates move around on on Impsa, on the races that I do a little bit each time, but for the last ten years they we've been racing at Road America when NASCAR goes to Watkins Glen, and then in two thousand and twenty they moved road America by one week and it let me go to the Glen and I had a deal and expinity and it was going to be awesome and I was so psyched to go do it. And then they wipe out Watkins Glenn and take away all those races. For all that stuff last year and then this year for two thousand and twenty one, they move the schedule back around and make it a conflict with road America again, so I can't get to Watkins Glenn. I've been I've been wanting to get to Watkins Glenn for so long, but unfortunately my main job is in the M so weather Tech Championship and and I've got the loyalty to John Potter, my teammate magnus racing there. So that's that's where I got to go. I love the Glen and I love that race. We still get to do the six hours of the Glen there in late June, but I'd love to come back in August and and race the Glen again. It's where I got my first top ten in exfinity and I've had some pretty amazing moments there naked. That's true. Yeah, I got I got a couple questions. My first question was kind of just about obviously you've switched back and forth between stock cars and sports cars for like a decade plus now, but I was wondering if there's Sun any challenges or any learning curve that you still have to deal with. There is. Last year was tough, man, because so I did I think I did three exfinity races in two thousand and eighteen and they none of them really went well. We ran well, we ran really well at mid Ohio. We got spun out. Then we ran decently. I think we finished ninth or something. That wrote America and and then we got in that turn one wreck at the Charlotte Roboll and. I was put off by it and we just it was. It was a rough deal and I didn't run anything in two thousand and nineteen and then two thousand and twenty. Coming Back Post Covid I got to do Daytona and Road America for our motorsports in the zero two because MOFFATT was jumping back and forth in the truck deal. And when they said there'd be no practice, I was like, Oh man, you mean we rolled just straight in the qualifying? That's going to be tricky and man, I don't know if I'm going to qualify. And they're like no, no, there's no qualifying either. We're just going to pull it out of the trailer or roll it through tech and you get a pace lap and I'm like, I haven't driven one of these in two years now. This is going to be a little bit tricky. So yes, there's definitely you on...

...the road racing side. It's a very similar application. It's almost old school because it's still an age pattern, still a four speed age pattern and it's still he'll toe breaking and stuff like that on the ovals. That's that's tricky. You almost need to like take one head off, put a new one on and relearn a whole bunch of stuff. The tire is so different. I'm looking forward to this, this next Gen car, because I think if I have an opportunity to drive it will be a lot more like the GT three cars that I drive and that would give me a little bit less of a disadvantage on the on the road courses. Just an entire feel and stuff like that. But yeah, it last year was crazy, just going out doing a pay slap and then throwing the throwing the green and trying to figure year out everything. That's when good note takers and stuff like that. That's that stuff's important. So we got two top fives out of it, to fifth place finishes in two races last year. So that led to this year's opportunities and hopefully some more on down the road if if I can performing in this year. Another one I read this morning about your lose career, which I found the dressing. I like want to lose up the Olympics. I was just wondering get there, like it's kind of like racing balls. So kind of not. It's sort of like qualifying. I was wondering if there's anything you can apply from racing the loge Moose to racing or maybe so. My Loge, my lose experience is street Louche, so it is on wheels on a mountain hill. I did ice loge one time as this really cool the ice loge sanctioning body in the street loose sanctioning body got together as a cross promotion and they said the top three finishing Americans at the end of the year in both series will will train each other in their other discipline. So I was one of the top three ranked Americans at the end of two thousand three or four and that got me an invite to Salt Lake City to go to basically lose school, and they entered us. We did like two nights of training and then they entered us in the US amateur nationals and that was that was a blast. But my my real loge experience is street looge, like you've seen in the X Games back in the day, if you've ever checked that out. So that is to man, four man and six man heat. So you are racing shoulder to shoulder down a mountain hill, laid laying down toes first, with your head laid back, flying down hills. The fastest I've ever gone on a lose was ninety eight miles an hour, but typically on race courses when you're racing side by side, it is low s. But racing line understand the geometry of your trucks is just like understanding the geometry of your suspension. So loge didn't help me race cars, but cars definitely helped me race loge. Understanding the draft, understanding all sorts of understanding of a mechanical rolling device and how you can make it go faster and understanding our dynamics really set the stage for helping me do do really well and street loose over the years. I ran street loose for probably a round. Street loose from two thousand and one through two thousand and sixteen was the last event that I took place in that I took participated in. I have a wrist injury from Brazili Jiujitsu that has messed up my paddle. So you know, we start from a standing start, kind of leaned over, and we paddle and push off and that that. That inhibits me a little bit because I don't have as much angle on my on my right wrist, but it is a blast and it is one of the funnest things to do. I don't encourage open road street Louge, but doing events and stuff like that is absolutely wild. That sounds pretty insane. It's cool. It's so do you Coutu to it? Nine hundred and ninety eight said yeah, so we did. In Canada, northeast of Quebec City, basically like due north over Maine, there's this insanely stupid steep hill for like three quarters of a mile and nowhere in the United States would they pave this hill just straight down to the bay. It would be like a windy road with like a little flat thing and then like a little uphill section of slow cars down and then it would wind around. These Canadians, there's like a slight bend in the road and then it just drops and it was insane and they so we basically we went to try to break the Guinness Book of world's records which was set on that...

...hill which was like ninety eight point two miles an hour, and so twenty street losers got invited for two day run where it was just the Guinness Book of world's records officials were there. They said a speed trap at the bottom and they gave us parameters which defined the definition of a street louge and I built a purpose built street loses you. If you guys go to my instagram, is just Andy Lalley racing. You Scroll back to September two thousand and sixteen, you'll see pictures of this. I basically made a ten footlong lawn dark that I crawled into and bomb some crazy hills with. It was that is one of the dumbest things I've ever done in my life. I've done so many stupid crazy things in my life and that is in the top three. On the last run that I did, I called my dad, who helped me build this luge. I designed the whole thing and then I went he's got a Fab shop and we went in and we did all the cutting and welding and then I brought it back to Georgia. He's in New York still, and I took foam and I foamed, I shaped and cut and sanded all the our dynamic devices on it and then my Stepdad actually helped me with that, and then I fiberglassed it and then painted this thing. You'll see this. It's insane if you look at the pictures on the instant on my instagram and it. I called him before my last run because I done ninety four miles an hour and I thought I was going to kill myself. Good. It like typical Canadian sporting event to it put like a mattress and a few Hay bales up at the end of the road. You get through the speed trap and there's a guard rail, a cliff on the right side and a cement divider. It's like six feet tall. So if you eat it, if you lose control going through the speed trap, and it's not oh by the way, this is a road that sees real winters, so it's got undulations and wheel tracks in it and stuff like that, so it is not smooth and so you're getting thrown around in there at at ninety four miles an hour. I almost lost it through the shutdown zone because that's like the worst part in its super narrow and that's where a lot of guys were like. You could see they were starting to loses. We were bombing it faster and faster and pushing off harder and going full talk all the way down and I called my dad. I'm like, I should only go if I'm going to go flat out, because I'm so close to that right now. But like every mile an hour that you go, just like a plane, it adds instability. Like if if you did when I did ninety miles an hour and I had like a little bit of a white you ever get on a skateboard and roll down a hill and it the trucks are too loose and get this wob and you got to like aim for the neighbor's lawn and ball out because you know there's no way that you get all that? That's what happens. But it happens at fifty miles an hour, six miles hours, every of them, eighty, ninety miles an hour, and you have to tune the geometry and the end tighten up the suspension for that and then still haven't be able to turn a little bit. So you can't just lock it straight and send it straight down the hill. You'll just run off in the sides and every little undulation, so I call them. I'm like this is this is full sin, like I do this. This is take the Gopros off the nose, full speed suit, push off as hard as you can, full talk, never look up and go. He's like, you spent all that time building it might as well. I'm like, I set top of the hill like this, maybe the last time I use my legs, because that's how insane this was. You just a hundred miles an hour. It's like jumping out of a car. A hundred miles an hour and maybe at the guard rail or maybe at the wall, or maybe you're lucking. You slide straight and we bombed it. We I did like ninety eight point six or ninety eight point eight miles an hour or something like that. Me and two other guys broke the Guinness Boke World Records. I was third quickest. The guy that broke it broke a hundred miles an hour and then lost it in the shutdown. Are almost killed himself. My Buddy Mike McIntyre, I think he's back to full strength. He's back to full strength. Hopefully he's back to full mental capacity. Now that was five years ago. That's a brave dude. But yeah, that was insane and that was that was one of the biggest cut check. You know, some guys might say that took guts or like that's a man lead. I was so dumb. That's all that was. That was just a dumb, crazy, egotistical run down to hill because I wanted to break a record and that was that was it. I sent the videos to the group chat. If you guys want to watch, you go there's, there's a there's there's one from there's a red bull one that we get jumps on and streets of San Francisco. That one...

...is pretty cool too. But yeah, yeah, man, good stuff. It's absolutely wild. But Um, so I'm going to take it back to the racing a little bit. Kids. Yeah, that was seeing a couple of those. That's that's honestly insane seeing that stuff. But so we've talked about the beginning of your career. We've talked about running at Daytona, on running at Watkins Glen. What's up? I know it's says you've done Lamar before, but are there any other international tracks that you wish you could have raced at? If you haven't already. So I'm I love the US man. I love our tracks here. There are definitely I've been to Lama. I've been on the podium at Lama. Amazing track, amazing fan base. When we walked out on the podium there and the people would just gushing off the stands like a hundred thousand people in pit lane. It was it was insane, very cool. But unless it's like with a really competitive deal, I don't have a ton of interest to go back there. But it's a cool track. I as far as like to check it off the box things. I'm not dying to go, but nervergreen would be awesome. Spa doing a rouge would be really cool. Probably really probably only those two tracks. Actually, I take it back. I race the World Championships in Australia in street louge and we raced from the top of Mount Panorama, which is bathurst, all the way down and that was seventy miles an hour a street louge and I got to drew driver ats. At Public Street there's mail boxes on the side of the road when it's not a race track, but it's always lined, fully lined as the race track and man that was an amazing spot. I would I would travel to go do a race there. would be cool to do the one thousand there. So so in order, probably Bathurst, nervergreing SPA would be the three tracks internationally that I have not driven on that I would like to raise. I've gotten over to do formula cars. I was fortunate enough to be part of the TM USA program back a long, long time ago and got to race in England. Got The race silverstone, Snanderton, brands hatch do some other testing out there. I was cool. But yeah, those are the three would be. would be pretty cool Thruston nervgreing or definitely probably my two favorite international tracks out there. So that is yeah, but it's definitely a for sure. Those tracks are just absolutely saying yeah that Bathurst, the elevation change is just cool and to go drive around the Green Hill would be pretty awesome too. For sure. Absolutely. Guys. You Got Anymore? I do our the one reliable this time. Who did last time? With a Chris, I think? Yeah, yeah, it was me. Yeah, okay, so we asked this with every one of our guests that come on. Do you have any funny stories about being at any track or something like that being at a racetrack or anything, and you needed to send me this and text so I could think about it. There's like a yeah, you're like what's appropriate and what's not. Yeah, but, and, but, also, man, I'm horrible when you put me on a spot for something like that to have to dig through my memory, because my memories a bunch of foggy broken glass. So yeah, I'd need maybe next time I come on the show give me, give me a reminder again. But I mean it's been I'm at mid Ohio. This is the twenty six year that I've come to this track, my places like Limerock, Watkins Glen, all these places where I've been. I've been fortunate enough to race for twenty five, six, seven, eight years. As my twenty eighth year and auto racing. I've been real fortunate to be around and part of some amazing events, both funny and just, you know, epic at the same time. So it's been it would be pretty cool. That would be like a whole nother podcast that we can go through. So have me on a future some other point and we'll go over some of that...

...dumb stuff. For one thing I remember was a few years back was the fake lego movie that Magnus said. I thought that was pretty funny. There's a so a lot of the stuff that magnus does. John Potter, who owns Magnus Racing, I sum it up for him like this. This isn't exactly his words, but he has a great fresh look at racing period. I was going to say sports car racing, but he looks at all these press releases and there's so fill in the blank and and cheesy and I'm so excited about this, blah, blah, blah, fill in the blank, blabba. And so he never wanted to do anything like that. So at everything that touched the car with magnus racing has been taken extremely serious, like everything that is performance related to magnus racing, trying to win a race, trying to go faster, there is it's all seriousness. We we do everything that we can to make the most men of speed. Everything that is part of the team, everything else that is part of the team that does not directly relate to how fast the car can go is almost not allowed to be taken seriously. So our press releases and our media stuff is paramount in that area. And what you're referring to is the two thousand and Sixteen Daytona twenty four hour preview video where my buddy Shawn Heckman and John Potter got together and did this crazy video where we all got lipsync rolls and, you know, we all had speaking parts that we had to do an audio thing for and they made the Legos talk with us. That video you cannot find anymore because we won the twenty four hours of Daytona that year and we got a letter Monday after the race from Lego which was well from their lawyers and it was a cease and assist letter and they said in it congratulations on your excellent victory, but we must ask you to never show this video again because they didn't call them Legos. What do they call the leg what are they call? Call the people, the Lego people? Figures? Yeah, what? What? Mini figures? Yes, they said our mini figures cannot be shown drinking alcohol. And if any, if you guys saw the video way back before we got it taken down, we left it up for like another two days just to get everybody's views in their it was pretty epic, it was, and everything that Magnus. If you guys go to the Magnus Racing Youtube page. There you could probably see every year that we've done. We stopped doing it last year when he switched the teams over and stuff like that, but there's a bunch of years of movie posters and preview videos and all sorts of crazy stuff that he just likes to be really lighthearted about all that stuff. It's pretty cool, honestly. Yeah, a video. Appreciate you guys having me on that. Thank you for Oh yeah, that answer coming out and thanks for showing up. Yeah, times shout out your social medias where people can get a hold of you sure of get updates on you and all that's Matt. I'm just real simple on twitter, I'm just at Andy Lally on Instagram, mom at Andy lally racing, and those are the two main social media that I'm not a snapchat or a or tick tock guy. Giving up on that. I'm just going to stick to the basics. I'm too old for Tick Tock. I don't think I'm allowed on there. But yeah, if you follow me that my instagram really might. My twitter is for some basic stuff. My instagram I'm on a lot with either my stories or my post or something like that. You can see me today. Actually, if you check it out today, you can see me trying to jump over my teammates car while it's going in smoking the Times. Yeah, it's good times. But yeah, thanks again. We're coming on here with us. Will definitely have to get you back on here and get some more stories. Sounds good, guys. Yeah, all right, man, have a good one, guys. Yeah, thanks for coming on. Thank you all. Good later, guys. Once again, thank for Andy Lally for taking his time out of his night to come on with us, and thanks for watching a podcast.
