Welcomes episode six of that Scar Hospout podcast. I'm your host, troy, followed by Chris, Kate and Nick, the usuals. We're going to have a really long, not really long, but really in depth. I ever see that video on Daytona and the two thousand and Twenty Nascar Cup series playoffs? It is going to be a wild one. So I hope you guys are enjoy whatever's coming. So we'll start it off. How how has everyone been? No, yeah, exactly. No, straight mood, honestly. Speaking of speaking of wild Um, how about the rumors that came out in the past like hour and a half, two hours, I wasn't wasn't even two hours. Thirty minute. Yes, Pensky ran out of syndric merge, so now he's yeah, everyone's buggin saying that he's gonna lose his ride and all that because it deleted one to me. I guess you're not allowed to deleted tweet or somewhere. Yeah, no, but all this merch is gone off like every website. Yeah, I don't see I see Tim Hill, March innuary, but you know, yeah, I don't. I don't see a lot of guys as much. Yeah, but yeah, that's differ. It's most likely just like a glitch in the software. That's what everyone's saying stuff like that. Yeah, will no more like the next like day or two, or maybe they're taking it down to load up. Two Thousand and twenty one couple. It's pretty early. Yeah, it's early. Yeah, that's throwback merge or something. I ain't anything's possible. Rela now released already most of it. It's what I find weird. He hasn't. He hasn't released a throwback scheme yet because he's getting fired. He got fired. That's why. What about your raising and that whole dud? If I know, pose they're done. I mean we already do. Ever pulled their sponsorship, that they would totally just because it's really it's literally guy co racing. They little, they control the team. Whatever happened. So they're like pretty much, like as important as a driver pretty much on that team. Well, yeah, I mean if without Guy Co there really is no Germaine Racing because there's just zero funding at that point. So it'll be that one's interesting. I guess we got to wait and see what happens, contracting new or wise, if anything happens, because if not in they're gonna have to go straight forward. We've gone through the rumors and Um, let's get into it. The weekend. The weekend. Yes, it had a lot of hype to it and it did not disappoint one bit. No, wait, are we not talking about the next Gen car? We'll get there. Look at we'll get to that after the weekend. We'll added. Yeah, so we'll start up with the EX finity race. Pretty much it was like it was what you would you expect from expinity these days. It's mostly single file race and especially it was dominated by calling racing. Once they hooked up, it was gone and once like junior water sports is rocked out and the RAC fest. That was like the first time turn around those Preda Jils of the night. Teen collects the zero to mob, but they go back up and collect. Then it was just like straight to the end, it was like calling racing. One hundred and twenty three. Yeah, well, yeah, it was. It was a we saw Hailey win or in Truestin Haley when the first stage because calling racing, and then early in Stage two there was the big wreck that we saw a lot of guys, we saw a lot of guys get taken out or this or that happened. That included especially the junior motor sports guys. Yeah, so three of the four of them and that was left alone. When you're only hope is Michael and that you know you ain't winning it. Now he's the best to you. Yeah, it's true, bro Oh, totally, just like, just like Roy Herbs had the best finishing with the jibs core. Yeah, that's pretty sad. You Justin. Haley decides to wait in the Mooser Steven moments. Ever, he's like Ryan Bladey, Bryan Blade, cannot win it. Let's a good finish. Honestly, it's only like win. That like wasn't like in the dramatic fashion, was gateways for Shark Win. Everything else has been like Canadians, Canadian tire...

Texas. Gil Wind run out of gas on the final rap or had some kind of issue on the final lap. And then he want to cut with Daytona, which is upset, and then he want at Talladega with out firm is teammates, and then you want to day Tona when his teammates take out each other the ten turns. This is out front now. Haley is leading jump stood. Haley went to the bottom. It Justin, Haley. It's good. Yeah, teammates again. Yeah, basically because it like eliminated the field behind them. Water on net was moving on the final lap. He was like swerving and thes went up at like kill them. Yeah, great, but Oh, yeah, great, golding with second yeah, great, all night. What to go? Okay, so we've grown up for ex affinity. Hailey Ron. Yeah, they're yeah, Haley one, theres just for endless, it seemed for them. And then so that sets up their playoff cutoff races. Saturday isn't two races. It's two races. Very is it two races? Yeah, I think it's Bris SOT store, no, Vega, no, that's true, Bristles Das. It's really down between Brown and Clement. Yeah, it's pretty large. If one of them has like two a probably one bad day and and the other one gets stage points and finishes like top fifteen, then they were gonna have like a battle. But like they both got wrecked out of Talladegas, who was kind of like must opportunities there. Unless see you has just a dumpster fire of a day and clements wins, then seek me out of it. Actually because of how much he's only ahead of Brown. I mean not only he's fifty seven points up. So say he's the first one out in clements wins the race and Brandon Brown, you know, just runs a rase like he normally would, then that's the only way like anything crazy could happen. But it's so unlikely that, yeah, it's pretty safe right now. Yeah, I mean we'll see. Plus Eighty one, I think. So eighty six. Brendan Jones to the one day tone on. Here we go, here we no, I barely know. I barely even watch that race. I was, though, but I watched like the fifteen ds. I will watch the team in a highlight the knocking a lot. No, you watched it with last laugh. I'll watch a lot of it. I broke in. Yeah, I'dapping each other the entire race, even video. Yeah, but I mean the finish was like, Oh, I got a colleague knows how to set up a whole race. It's just the final corner, something about turn, for I don't lay drag. The different difference is rock. It was rushed sting, which is always like really aggressive. That was and that was like in second this time, unlike last year. We're yeah, on ALMONDGERDOM, almond danger through a lay block like ABB chas stain was already on his inside. Wow, I'll guy. I mean I'm to hear we're staring the block, I mean testing just he's going to be more aggressive because he's still trying to get a up gride. No windless. He class four hundred and twenty. Nice. Nice. I thought someone would comment thought on my post today. I like write it down. I will. No one was sixty nine up for anything like that. So, you know, no instruct someone is Oh, no, are you serious? Yeah, got no comments about it. Who? Wait, I know someone is. Oh wait, no one. Is You kidding? Now there's gonna be. I'm looking. Oh, tanner racy, six nine of Nice, I mean tenor. He's not that good. I don't think he's making the playoffs. He's my win yeah, yeah, he's the only one I'm really like worried about winning. Is Sauder? No, I mean Sasn't been that good this year. Freezing doesn't have aldorado get himself into the playoffs. Even got a top five this we want to hear it. You guys always hate on freason from well, I mean look at...

...the season. He's being good at candy. He's ninety sive five under. Guys. You guys have hate the Canadians. It's fine. He went from being a final four driver to be in ninety seven under the line. Yeah, we also can one season manufacturers. You got to keep in mind is this could be like a learning year. If he stayed with Chevrolet, probably be doing ellis whole lot better now. Well, you got to look at it. You gotta look at who is it? Oh, Gilland he switched teams and he's in the player don't care right now. Ah, you're just mad because it because he can think about this. Gilling's driving for a cup team and freezing drugging for a family's never owned a truck team, though. This is completely new. Yeah, but nowhere's near the same thing. Comparing that that's like such a hard thing to compare, especially when freezing has trd backing. I don't know, I just feel like the Toyotas aren't as strong in the trucks as they used to be. Yeah, well, ack is almost. I guess is almost one. Like five races us in by choked all of them. Yes, hold what so many seniors falling off a little way. Well, Kyle Bush is one one. That's cover. Yeahs AARD is done nothing. Besides, he did something at the at the road course. They to on a road course. That's he came six on Sunday. That's a bad D he had to get a pretty good run Sunday to yeah, I mean if it's just too little, too late though at this point. Yeah, I mean, because he's not gonna he's not going to win Darlington, because that's weird. I'M JUMP WE'RE JUMPING WAY ahead. We need to we may as well to talk about trucks now. Yeah, let's just talk about trucks. So I didn't know if he's gotten in the trucks we're talking about. Trust that's as Sunday. We won't get the best for us. I'M gonna be honest, I didn't even know there's a truck race. The toil like the final three laps of race. So you don't need to do so. It was a listen. It was a decent race and towards the final like three laps and everyone. What I heard is that Dirtin like GMS Turt but was it GMS? Yeah, who absolutely nihilated every other driver. who was a contenders. Mayor killed actually banging into one another a high speed cudn seventy miles an hour. This is great racing. Wow, just tells you how difficult it is to pass a how talented these young racers are to be able to hang on to their trucks while bouncing off each other. Twenty four, mayor we mentioned, is seventeen. ACIS way up out of the groove and free creeds till. Yeah, it's the front end of his truck and just put Gilding, it's a flat tire. Well, heartbreaker for ACAS battle for the line. Even that Gil in the wall after show me. Yeah, I have to go first to see after killing let's seventy plus labs and won the first two stages. Yeah, that was a little disappointing to see that. I was a little upset. Not gonna lie, I don't care. So yeah, honestly I would like to see him win, but like, as an anchor fan, it's good you can't. He got like dumped out of there. You know. I mean anchor has been at time of the disappointing this year. I thought it was before because he's a fifth truck at GMS and love being like that's like exp somebody that I would say is the fourth joke is the twenty four is not even full time. Oh, yeah, it's true. He's the fourth truck, which, honestly, that bad. But like, I don't know, it's a tough competition out there. And he's like nineteen or something like that. He's easy for you. He's young. He had to sit out like the first like six races last year because he wasn't eighteen and couldn't run this. Yeah, that's right. Yeah, so he's like nineteen or something like that at this point. I mean him the most start. Those are both guys I had a lot more success that D G Are Crowsy. I'm wondering if either of them get dropped, if they go back there. Yeah, I mean DD are only ran one drop this year. But if they want to go back to to then I know. I think gray'll say another year, but I want MOS started to go back there. I think think gray has funding backing him. That's why he's in that. All he all he has is Ford Fude One, creed one. I was as gms one to by like ten or...

...fifteen months the finish, but no one will pressure shelbon creed for the third time this season. Shelbon creed is the winner. Yeah, that's about it. Okay, I'm prob Sam Sam Mayor Joke, Sam Si me a choked because it was like a second struck start and he try to play games on the on the restart, but it didn't plan to his favor any also, I want to talk about Austin, Wayne cell trying to pull up two thousand and fifteen mat cans, but sailing on codd. I say to get on Carson M thills. Good as entertainment. Yeah, but he missed. It's en garage. It's so he's dissol there's also the white self on the right hand side. Remember he was upset with the forty of coast of our not hating on Austin and south, but like, I mean that shoe fits. Okay, Um, how many races until the truck playoffs? Like there's two more because no, is Bristol the cutoffers. The first race is usually the first race. Right now, bursts will cut off for are still the cutoff this year? Yeah, an GRUM's getting into three, four, five six. No, there's only there's only two rounds before the championship. Right. Yeah, yeah, Yeakay. So, so richmond is the cutoff because right Bristol is the seventh to last race. I'm just looking after and I'm doing it mathematically on racing reference and actually surprised me. Been Rhodes is four points if you take away he's been really consistent. He just hasn't had a winning speed. Yeah, that's it. That's about it. He's been finish races. Yeah, he's the only one that's like been finishing races. Really, I don't remember having like a mechanical maybe they tone our in a season really the amount of times that Zane Smith and bred my fit have had problems. But they're still up there because they because the races that they do finish, they get like top two in each stage and then they'll be like top three in the race. Yeah, they're two and three behind everyone's favorite, Austin Hill. Oh No, just caden's favorite's favorite. It's kids. We can't mention that to him because then they'll be more editing to do. I'll be an extra ten minutes of being a will caden slow down? Hey, so I've been trying to put this in for a while now, but let's go to cop. Finally, the big the big thing here, Jimmy, go on. Okay, so cup. Okay, just spoil it now, like you know, we were going to wait and actually bring that up. Everyone knows what happens if they're watching this. Did I did I say who won? WHNA, the goat for motorsports? That's who won. Yeah, Barn First With Jeff Gordon. Two Thousand and fifteen. Martin, when's in the twenty four? William barred one, Chase Eliot Cup series, a securitate. Hey, it took him ninety eight raises. It took chase ellly ninety nine. That's all I'M gonna say. Yeah, let's like, let's think about this, let's yeah, let's bring this down. Then we'll break down the rest of the race. Since William Byron has, I think, I think I might be wrong, but like nine to ten top fives and his whole career. Yeah, it's pretty though. It's Um, I mean I'm not saying Evan. He's seven top fives, five last year to this year. That's row. That's it's rough. I mean, I didn't I don't think anyone expects him to start winning in his rookie here. He did pick up all on a frostame. We're expecting that. I expect to day. I decided an expending champion. If for an expad champion and he moved the cop right away, then people expect you just like Denny Hambling, it for a championship. So, solar, let's look at this. Let's start in the in the ninety eight races that Byron and chase have ran together. How many words, though, chase has. Oh, and the one they ran together. That doesn't care, because elliotts older as more experience. That is true. Oh, man by like what what is that? Two years, two seasons, two years could be. Yeah, I'm not saying anything, but chase elliot probably gets the best equipment at AHMS. No, he does, he does, he does, is no question. Does I mean William biodi. He has two wins this season and probably should have like yeah, he's been running like a top the three, not top day, the top ten,...

...almost every racing season, while most races William Bard is failing to crack the top fifteen. Just a reminder, Chase Elliott is fifth and owner's points, because that's the way to tell without using the or we's for. Fourth is Joey. Third is bread, denny as second and halls. I thought we were talking. Okay, okay, six top ten, true x and six. Well, let's go. W Know I'm doing. I'm talking. You look at the owners point, so before the playoff bracket, because that's the easiest way to tell. Yeah, and Byron is actually nine in the yeah, they win. That's a good yea. How many stage was to see? I don't think he has. At most one. Yeah, I don't even know if he has. I'll look at it. I look it up. Right now. Cold custer's tied for ten. That surprise him all, morolandling in time most because the playoff points now. So yeah, Dylan a custer have it all wins and just I'm a roll of whinning Stich. Is Weird recent you think last year there were a lot of drivers who were sitting pretty comfy. They you would think this season really first race. Anyone messes up, you're in a hole immediately, unless you're daddy handler, Kevin Harvey. Yeah, HARV EXERCS has to put together like one did ray solid race. Is that? The finish, like in the top ten each stage and then finish like top ten in the end of the race. He's like a Lark. He's like, Oh man, I didn't win the race, but I'm gonna make the next round. Yeah, this is completely off topic, but I was just thinking after Reddick's mistake, I was just thinking about who the rookie of the year would be, because I like, obviously it's already cold custer's already cold custer. Yeah, because he made the playoffs because Reddick Reddy can't get past him. Point twice. Oh, tyly, REDEX Ricordi your team of mind. Yep, people, all the people saying Mema, check back in like June or yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, he had eight at Darlington and the like, and then he home. Do they get top five or something like that at how ID get? Yeah, and then he don have like three races in a row, Michigan's and Dover, missing at least. Like you know who's going, mackenzis, who were like, you know, it's a weekly caution. Yeah, but I didn't mixpect. I can't believe people actually legitimately said, wow, back kinsas is a playoff contender this year, like before it even happened. Totally was not. I was not on that train. Yeah, they would. Ryan Newman, I'm like N I'm like Kns, just a cup champion. There's no reason he should miss it miss he's like you know, yeah, no, people forgot about Kansas time in the six. I mean obviously the six is worse than the forty two, but like dud people forget that. He didn't do anything in that. Dude apparently tends of this really good Indianapolis. Yeah, you better second the hurt in the Windham rewards and then he finished second there in. He wanted in the sixth car. Can't even remember that it was the six car. He goes by the sponsor, not the number. Women is a chase Elliott finished second in the NAPA. Yeah, she's Elliot. Chase Elliot finished second in the Napritick car and any ham it. That's round it. They thought it was Peter Martinsurance. Finished second in the past, Pro Carr, thank you. Was this weekend, though. He could have won over, he could have won the only two races I can recently remember that he should one and Kentucky. Kentucky was one that we should have won, but the package is terrible. He also got contact from Harvech when Harvey went up from getting contact from Blainey. So so blame Chase Eliot. That's why I blame chase. Saw It rain. Blame Kentucky for having a drain in the middle of the track. Yes, complete sense. We're like cars wouldn't normally take that line, but they're like Nah, let's just mess this all up. Yeah, we ever talked about the race at all? Yeah, it's about the race. We gonna go in look at no one. Bull stages, Latin, laugh fire. That dude, I don't know how came up. I would have no where he would. He would be like back in fifteen and then all of a sudden in the last two laps he's leading because once and it was always with playing pine car and a super...

...speedway, he had help from Blaine. So that's all you need. Me mcgonno pretty much has tallady go for or on claims. So yeah, yeah, it's pretty scary ry. Yeah, okay, let's get up the top. I go forul Gano at Talladegau with the stages. Oh Ye had two thousand and fifteen. Toldega, what about twenty five? What about two thousand and seventeen? Dagger? We're Lookana decided to opto pushing junior, giving him a chance to win, and decided to just shove U Gezlowski a million miles out front day mates. What about? He was about leave me and junior junior had damage his head light on the front of his cars like squared in. Thank JEM start ranks that race. I thought it was just stickers, stickers, sticker, but it's dented. It was dented and that's why I like after the Ghana block them, like I'm Rolla. Tried pushing him and like they wouldn't go because he has air dynamics. was like killed. Remember with Daniel swars almost one that reason. Then took out him and chase sally and car oars and Hilarious. Remember them. That was. Do you look back at the series? Dude, I rais was so stupid now that I look back at it. Like you know, many drivers who had a chance to win but screwed it up. I really one using out every drive art. Don't mention to final lap, but whant to go out. I'm cool. I'm cool with Brad winning because on the back of his car he had like a tribute to Dayel, so like it was beast, like. I don't if I don't get one that raised, we would not be talked about that race right now. Ride is one of the most underappreciated drivers and Cup history. Say What, like Kenzeth and Harvard, because really quiet. Yeah, this kind of warranted some of the heat. Oh well, yeah, have to two thousand and fifty. Yeah, no, I like before then, like he didn't get like that much praise because, like you would know, we sucking qualifying and then like run through the field and somehow like win. Well, yeah, because he would just he was doing the same thing that Harvec and denny are doing this year. Like when he was in the gibbs equipment, all he would do is win. For everyone is like, all right, this is probably is what. He only raced the only race for gives for what a couple of years, and when like two years, twenty, three, no, four, five, don't listen to five. He's race the race there for five years. Don't work any win at least ten races. Yeah, because he won five or six one in one season alone. Right, two thousand and thirteen, he was win less than two thousand and fourteen. I know that. I don't remember all this. So okay, calm. I was I was. I was looking to two thousand and fourteen stuff third day and I'm like wow, can just didn't win in two thousand and fourteen. It kind of like stuck with me. Well, just your casual two thousand and fourteen NASCARS. It's this thing. It's like the things that like I'm like thinking about Nascar during the day and I think it like random stuff and like I go through, like the stats are raised the stets of a track of sets of a driver, and like I pick out like the little things, like I find them, like we I didn know this happened. He won seven times in two thousand and thirteen, five times in two thousand and fifteen, two times in two thousand and sixteen and one time in two thousand and seventeen. Yes, so he wrecked off a few wins and a short amount of where he wanted new. He Sixteen. I know that. There's the leg even fifteen racist total. Yeah, in his career. No, you got now know it gives you. Yeah, the two six Casey can came twenty six. Uh, you know, the Modern Casey can came twenty six. Dude, I'm so sad. As far as got caught up in that wreck Broye. Okay, he was leading, and this also I noticed today. This kills like his no DNF. Yeah, for this season it does, it does. I was literally up so Dan. I was upset about that, I think, as I saw him get right those like Dang, because like that's one of like the coolest sense really to get from the season. Daniel Maris didn't get wrecked in that the five hundred because he being cube. Well, yeah, because he got wrecked in the duel and this words could have just ran his normal paint scheme next weekend color to throw back, because it looks pretty close to it. So...

...let's just skip through the first two stages because, I mean, we kind of covered them. We're gonna okay, it wasn't that much in talking. Okay, so the final state. It wasn't. It wasn't eventful, but it was honestly a really good race. For No, really, it was a great race. Honestly. Yeah, it was, like it was definitely like that in Daga top to season. Now it's just better than Dayga, just like the hype and like how does shaved all the hull of the hype lift up to it? Yeah, it lived up to the hype hands down. Yeah, so stage three started and, like, I was nervous, I was shaking a little bit, and you are shaking, weroll. I got my driver guard destroyed by a slide job at a toona. Okay, all right, has we know it's Daytona and you need to go in with the mindset that, hey, something's probably gonna Happen to your favorite driver because it's a plate track or whatever they call him nowadays. At this point, it's not my favorite. Every's my space favorite. Right, get tapered Spain. Just call it a super speed away Broa. Yeah, so stage three starts, and doesn't it go like single file or something like in the beginning? Yeah, because a fuel strategy goes in right away. Yeah, so the pack split up and everything, the Kween, Chevy Ford, twilet and everything and all that. It was all a single file and all that. And then ten laps to go happens. I think it was like eight to go, and Tyler redic makes him makes his way up front and he kind of a rookie mistake. Oh Damn, but he course with the man pulled a slide joe had the right here. What is their teammate? Tyler Reddick out front. Now Tyler is going to try to block he did. The fans open the wall. He goes these of the wall. Eric Joes gets caught up in it as well. The Big One does happen? The forty seven Rickie stood house Jr. Now, anyway, Reddick was going for when, because he was trying to get into the playoffs. You knowsis last. I don't know, there's only nine laps to go. You can't blame him for the yeah, I have any right, very any dry got away. I would have made that move. Anyone would have made them move. It just it, but it's see, I I don't them move. Anyone would make that. Why you're this upset about it? Anyone would have made that. I'm only upset about it. I'm just upset about it. Makes Sense, I agree. Yeah, it's just biasms. So you can't tell me you're still not upset about Johnson not making the playoffs. We're we can't even get to there. And you know, Kada's just like, Oh, let me just go way off. I forgot to bring tissues this, but okay, I'm down about Johnson. Of course you are. Thank you, but we're not there yet. We're at the point where writing just like slive jobs to feel okay. You know, right, Rason, I'm Oh, what about Ryan humans interview? Yeah, righty doing was just salty, basically because he didn't get the chance to make that move. I mean, he may have been wrecked though, but at least it didn't almost. I can't leave the goal. His goal the race. His goal the race was to finish the race and, like me, it's then't even know. So, like Hute, yeah, it's Daytona. Your if you don't get caught up in the wrecks, you're gonna get a good finishing position because it's there. Want it. There's not enough cars left to have a bad honestly, SDR rex, I just wanted to finish top thirty. I think I would have been an accomplishment. No, if you can like twenty five, you would have been mad in the group job. That's a hungry yes, someone like Tapp, if someone like tap the guy and like made him like drop positions, the group Chare would have been like Caden's, like seven fire to no, no, I wouldn't have been that bad because that would get us out of all the carnage. So you know, that's a defend. Would have been shunned in the group chat. Kated mad every week anywhere directed come. Yeah, lead like a if you weeds. I'm at every weekend because my drivers are kind of like what your drivers you drivers are terrible, except for chase drivers. She's can't even finish a race. Well, I know you just got second for like you can like run top ten all day. We reason one. That is because they add won't take lovely. Just did win two...

...weeks ago. That is true. I might have forgot about that. Yeah, but like, like he couldn't like finish racing stuff, and that's like kills the points a little bit. He still can't finish race this. Didn't he have like two bad finishes at Dover. Didn't eat ready, erect secondaries, E. Wreck the second race and then the first race. I just don't think he had a good finish. I think he finished like fifteen or fourteen. He I fear what happened. But Oh no, what's any bad lack in the second race. That's all the yeah, Lagana killed them all like lap A. Yeah, I remember lap eight. Yeah, and then like the race before that he had damage from boy or or something like that. I like the straight away, yet putting to the wall. And Yeah, Peter Rocket ship, though, like he made his way up to top five, I think. Actually, so, like it wasn't like a horrible day. Yeah, I don't understand why he started that low on the first race, because he won the previous week. No, he's said, excuse me, no, he's he started first. He started first in the first race and then, yeah, contact and then he started like it, towards the back in the second race and then he had nowhere to go when was chucked up. Yeah, anyways, so you know, the carnage of ten to go happens and you get guys like curtain Kyle and priests, and I'm just reading stunt house. We can do many Jones, guys like that get all caught up in it. And the funny thing was curtain Kyle wearing the mad ones. This time it is Jones and Newman. Well, I can understand Joe, you could understand Jones. Yeah, he's yeah, Joanes, that a race wedding car through the whole day. He was mad, laughed the one he was upstrating. He didn't finish. Okay, so it involved Kurt Bush, Reddick Kyle Bush, Newman, truex Jones, Austin, Dylan, stenhouse, McDowell and priests. Yeah, Stenhouse was having a good day. They hed, he laid back, which he never does in racist and he was finally making his rip to the front. But you got it because, yeah, because he was conservative, you didn't want to do stupid walk this time. And they get spun three times. Yeah, Nix. And then so you know, we have that happen. Get them all lined up, get them all ready to go, and they're going again and they barely just get to two to go. And and then you put any Hamlin and Joey Lagana or front and bubble wall is no. He on him had a plate track and William Iron and William Byron and Mans and and Makinson. Yeah, they also, I feel he Yay, we'll skip to it. heartbreak has outside about two bubble wall of got through. Tyler hit, Jimmy caught up. KENSIS lose control of his car and just like right in the Johnson and yeah, I cry as a bit, but I mean like a manly cry. It was kind of up and down into the PROMS. I wasn't a manly cry of a video of you crying? Well, that was not anything close to it, because ugly crying, I know. I mean that's gonna when that stuff happens, like, like you don't you don't know. I keep it. When that stuff happens, you don't think of like the movements you're making, because I was don like some weird stuff. Yeah, yeah, like wit, like when John When Jones, got in the wreck, I just sat there and side, no tears, no nothing. I just looked at the TV inside now and big watch. When big ones happened. I jump like forty feet off my couche and I used to run to the TV and I like stare at it and I follow my favorite drivers. I'm like where are they and where they go? I was while race and I see the rex start to happen and I'm just like, okay, this is happening, and then I see kinds of shoot up the track and I'm just like, and I'm not even a Johnson Fan, like I mean, like I respect the guy, but like I'm not gonna, you know, sit and watch him all race. But to see him get caught up in...

...it definitely like sucked from just like a NASCAR FAN perspectives. Whenever that happens to me. Like he got wreck and then just like show like the camera shop from like with his like mangled car, just like a driving and I'm just scared again. I'm not even blinking and like my whole entire my day and my season was just like crush. From there, I'm like this is a this is where it's done, and like a kind of like it kind of killed it a little bit. Imagine if you didn't get covid, though, he would have been in. There's so many like wood amps, so many snooves. Imagine if he didn't wreck it darning today, all I had to do is make it six hundred, all I need to do. Those are like his fault. Get his fault. Yeah, okay, the six hundred wasn't his fault either. Yea, his team's. If he if he just made it a half a lap and like been like patient at Darlington, then he would have made it by like six points. So like that over the bed a debto instead. Should have, could have, would have. I mean, it doesn't matter either way. Jimmy Johnson, I had been a DETTO. They're both round one eliminations. That's true. True. Oh wait, wait, we haven't jump into this because talked about bard winning and then we'll do it. Okay, but I did a ready, weird we did at her we started that. Okay, she silly finish a second is first top ten at Daytona. Finally he gets one, and I is a top ten every track that he's been to. Accomplishments. It's a little things in life. No, like to this. All right, play off. He's never finished. He's never he's never finished. Top Ten at Walkin's good. He's terrible there. Yeah, I don't want to be the first one to go because this is going to roll up a conversation. Okay, my mind all want to I want to go first, but I know how much controversy I'll go. I'll go first. One's got the most guaranteed. No, no, no, my on mines like kind of bold, but like it's not as bold as last year. Like I went, like Kurt Busch to a final four bull so did I, and then he and then he blew Tire Vegas and he got a limited I'm like, wholl well's screw the rest of the season because my prediction's just thinking done anyway. They'll make dumb predictions okay, it's old predictions because I hurt made the final four. Every's like. Well, Chris, in a final form like I guess that. What did you ha been winning and make me for the what? No, 's gonna make it a point demanded. Okay, man, I want to go for the season with eighteen top tens. So like I'm going first. I don't say so. Round of sixteen. I got Kez Lasky winning Darlington, I got true x winning Richmond and I got Kyle bushitting his first win at Bristol. And then I think Harvard and Hamil will be locked on points and blaney, chase, Lugano, Bowman Kurt. I think custer makes it and I think Boyer makes it. I think Almolla will miss it. He will be the thirteen spot. I think Byron misses it. I think the Benedetto and Dylan mcmiss is it. I think that's pretty enough explanatory. Now. You got it yet? Explain now? So I'm at the cutoff. What how does custom make it? How does gusher? Has Been Pretty I think customer has been pretty good at the short tracks and the low spoiler tracks in general. I think he'll have good runs and I don't know where he ran at Darlington. We're going to Darlington for the third time this year, which is weird to say, but that means he's got more experience running there now. So I think he'll. I think he'll maybe just slipping. I think ten above will be almost not locked, but they'll be like clear better than the final six. I think custer and clint make it, but like almost like the playoffs, by like just by ten points or something like that. Almolla, I just he hasn't been that consistent recently. Ever since he stopped finishing top ten and stop getting every pole every week, he hasn't been that good. So I just don't I can't trust him. William Byron, yes, he just got that win, but it's William Byron. He's just he's just so inconsistent. He has seven top fives in his whole career. I can't trust him. Just too entire season. I came into last two reasons. Yeah, that's t twenty. It's twenty four races. Twenty four races. He did not. I know burn friends gonna be like, well, he got a flight Tyler Darlington and in a fast car daytona, but like it's like but, like you, didn't get a top five any of those. Yeah, debanded DETTO. You see, I was actually debating him,...

...putting him into the round of twelve because he's he was pretty good last year in this summer brist a race. Idiot. I think he was decent. I think he was. Didn't he finished half five in the spring burst stories earlier this year. I think he did. Think he did. I'll do what today. That's but that was the only real saving grace that I saw him advancing. I think it would have to be yeah, there has a really great points, they there, or if he doesn't have a good points, stay there. He's done in Austin. Dylan, I'd love to say it was on to the round of twelve. Dylan. He's a cool guy, but Dylan, I don't I just don't see him as the other fifteen drivers without that when he wouldn't have made the playoffs. So round of twelve now. I think Denny Hamlo Wins Las Vegas. I think Ryan Blainey performs the sweep and will win at Talladegga and Levin Harvock. I think we'll get his first career when at the Charlotte Rovol and that checks off. Think he needs what one more win and Kentucky and that's it, tea, and then I think, yeah, I think it's just Kentucky. So then I think chase, Chase Elliot will make it in fourth. Fifth will be true X, six will be Lagano, seventh will be Alex Bowman and eighth will be Kurt Bush. The drivers I left out there were Brad has a, Lowski, Kyle Bush, cold custer and Clint bore because Lesky is never been good at the round of twelve, something about it. He's just never been good. He wasn't he had. He was good last year but not in around twelve with the year before. So I don't think. I just don't see him having better days at any of those tracks, and I may up other those drivers. If he wins Talladegga, well, that's of course he wins, but I think talladegas where he would have to win or have a massive points to Kyle Bush. It's two thousand and twenty. I just you can't trust the man this year with he'll have race winning speed but he'll end up finishing thirty five due to a flat tire, like he did at New Hampshire. Who knows, he could surprise us all, but I don't see him making it cold custer, I mean I don't think anyone really expects him to make it a pass around. It twelve. So that's just pretty self a complanatory. And Clint Boyer, I think we'll finish twelve in the points. Just he he's Clint bore oh sender and the to that I were like kind of debating all putting in where Bowman and curd. I think Kurt Boshan Alex Bowman both make the run. Debate. Alex Bowman has been decent, but I mean decent is really hard to say when he's not been that great. But I think he'll turn around the playoffs for sure. And I don't think Kurt Bush has been underrated this season. He's not having a season like last season, but he's consistently finishing eight through like twelve, so I don't think you can count him out. And now round of a Oh my God. Okay, so at Kansas I have true x winning. He had a top three car there early in the spring. Now we're going to a day race. I think he'll get it done Texas. This is very self explanatory. Kevin Harvey. Kevin harv wins Texas. He's just been dominant there since two thousand and seventeen and Martinsville. Ryan Blainey Wins Bartonsville. I have said it. He had no wait, don't look at me like that, Nick. He had a great he had a great running earlier in the spring. He led laughs that he finished second last year in the fall. I'm pretty sure he had a great run as well. So he's been recently doing really well there as I see him. When and I think Denny Ham will make it fourth on points, so that means chase Elliott, Joey Lagano, Kurt Bush and Alex Bowman will not make it. If it if it comes down to if Hamlin and and Harvard win, then I think points will definitely switch because I think chase will have a legitimate shot, I making the championship, for but I lagna will have a good runs, but I don't see curtain Bowman being factors. And the final four. I Have Ryan Blainey win the championship. That's a joke. Good, that's a joke. Okay, I've read those true and then, all right, you go. I Have Kevin Harvick. I think he gets his second championship. He's just been too good this season. I don't think you can doubt him. He'll have a race winning car at Phoenix. I think true x will finish second, I think Blainey will finish third and I think Danny will choke the championship just like last year and finished for I mean that last statement, the very last one,...

...definitely makes sense because you know it's Denny Hamlin. Yeah, one been happened. This year's like a really good year for him on but like you've seen it before, I'd see Tarvic, it's Harvard, get like Phoenix and it's two thousand and twenty. This is twenty ten. Denny Hamlin, I'm a little worried, gets into the final four because he's had some success at Phoenix. To his his win this year. He wasn't the fastest all rays. Yeah, it's here's a fast there was mattered because there's us. That's going to matter. But that was after that does after like Ellia, blue tire and sometime having a Blain. He is bleny up there. No, blanny got taken out like fifteen. Oh we get Blinn lost all talents. Okay, it's okay. It's okay. WHO's an ex? I think we should keep Chris last, if it sounds interesting. Yeah, do you want? Okay, so let's let me go. Finally, okay, go try. Okay, okay, I gotta stop saying okay, okay, okakay, okay, okay, sorry, my round of twelve hard. WH WHOA? We just jumped a whole. What did it jump? He jumps. Yeah, he was gonna say who. He's gonna say who he has in the round of twelve. Oh, ow, well, I don't have it noted. Who's gonna win where? I not know we're going to do. I'm just do that on the fly. Yeah, I just made it like five minutes ago. I'm sorry, I'm the actually only organized woman. Okay, Buddy, dude, I could have been. I could have said sure, will win ten of the ten playoff rises, if you would have liked that. It's that. Who Know? We ever staid it? That's I think Matt K okay, I saw some stupid like gag playoff thing and it was the final four will be cold custer, Clym Boyer, Austin Dylan and William Byron. That was it. Someone else. Yeah, I think it was bushliquer. Oh Yeah, lots to actually got people. That's not that funny. Like, I mean you just putting the works. Guys. It's like wow, if we listen to this there, damn, just Nixon, delete your account. It's far Mr Mr Calm, I be over here. I think the NASCAR's flush first. Oh, yeah, it was like commenting on it. That's a joke, George parents, this is yoke truth. Yeah, okay, so try. Are you going to say your playoff predictions? Yeah, Hey, before it starts. Okay, okay, okay, before I start, though, Um, look to my snapshat. It turns out today is derick craft's birthday. By on the day, like recording. This is Monday. So like, happy late birthday. Come on, the populated. Yeah, getting a happy birthday next to you, you know. Come on, if you don't come on our podcast, you're not. It's not the way to get someone on a podcast. Wow, nice, I don't okay, so right there in a drive, a Toyota. I like you, Matt Rod Gross, if you don't come on the podcast until you build a release you, it's in me, harve a camelon. They're locks. Brad, he's been very consistent. He's a lock. I'M NOT gonna explain. Lugano, Elliott true explain. They're pretty much locks for this, unless they like Kurt Bush it like last year. I just like not come in when they have a tire down. Okay. So, Alex Bowman, I've making it cold. CUSTER, I'm Rolla and both in a Bush brothers. All right. So start with Bowman. Unless see the leg if he does not make any mistakes and any of the races and he's like run them, then then he's fine. Custer, he has experience on at Darlington Bristol and he won an Expeni Race Richmond. I know, like explinitying copper, like different things, but like he won it and and yeah, he knows how to drive that. That's all I'm saying. And it's not a fake package. You can actually drive the track like you did. For as long as this podcast goes on, I will talk about how trick should have one races and try will hate on the package. Yeah, I'm a Rolla. His the...

...stage points again unless they get here. Bushes, two playoffs. He's in Kyle Bush. Some people have them like it getting out right away. I don't see that. He's Kyle bushing it. I get his two thousand and twenty is like barely any playoff points. But like he's been running becausistant, like top five each race still, even though like he has had trouble like finishing home and everything like that. And Kura Bush, he's Kurt Bush. You flies her in a radar, but like unless he doesn't like do what he did last year, and I yeah, that was kind of like the team's fault, but like you can't really control that like a blow and tire that much. But he's in. So getting out, that'll be willing Byron Austin, Dylan and Clinton Boyer and debted, debto So um we yum. He is his two top fives of the season. He he's super inconsistent and he's like he's just not he's just not round a twelve material. That's pretty much it. It's all I'm saying. Austin, Dylan, Austin might fight it out. You know, Richmond M last year I remember he had a good run. He had like a top five, top ten round, if I'm correct. I don't know, I think I think he did, and that. But at the same time URCR is kind of like they're like top twelve. But like, I don't know if he's going to get, be able to get the points. I think it's just going to be like too hard for him to get there. My opinion, Clinton boy er, I'm just going to say it, he's washed up. There's no way around it. His career is not how it was and it's coming down to we're retirement should be to be a thing in his career. I hate, I hate clink the lead but like, yeah, it's a cump war. is going to miss it unless unless, you like, pulls out a win at Richmond. Yes, to wins at Richmond his career, but like or one, I don't know the I remembered. I remember two thousand and eight, for obvious reasons from what happened with before that. anyways, we're going to look before the vaguest. Bristol, brustily are runner up this year. He actually ran pretty well but, like I just I just don't seem adding up with with the other top teams that are like better. I don't seem getting as many points as you before, especially since we have data, that recent data that's like this year. Two from Bristol's that like make it even were competitive and then debated doto. I get you think he's been good on short tracks all year and last year and everything. Yeah, Um, he's been going in short tracks. But like, I just don't I just don't see him getting in. It isn't enough. He doesn't have enough playoff points, any of that. And I don't know he'll be like fourteen fifteen. Won't be sixteen. I'm not saying he'll be sixteen. I don't know if we'll be awesome dylan, but I'm sorry, but it's probably going to be awesome Dylan. Yeah, so that's my rant about the round of twelve. We're going to go on around at eight where it's not lucky anymore and it's not just getting rid of the weak ones, no fence, but you know, it's facts most awesome dylan and and Byron and Custo. I know custers moving on, but like they shouldn't been. A playoffs get at here. Okay, so around run of twelve. Hold the but I think, I think I mess myself up. I didn't, I didn't write. So that would that was round a twelve. WHO's getting in? So, yeah, here's round of A. I've Harvard Hamlin. They're pretty much locked. They have like Max Stage points and everything. They're they're in. Brad. He's super consistent. We're going to Talladega. That's a good form for the role. Will decent there. He'll get points, but like nothing like huge and Vegas. I thought Vegas is first thing. Oh, it's darling to. Okay, anyways, Vegas. Brad will do good there, Brad, because Brad's good with the fake package. Number two this week of I was you could be a drinking game and take a shot of his tongue. Sure, I'll be right back drinking. Take a shit. Take Okay it. Take a shot at every time nick bashes Kaden. Take a shot every time. Chris size,...

I caden. Take a shot every time. Take a shot every time troy will bashes the fake package and take a shot every time says caden says trick should have won this raised. Oh Dude, I would not make it to a single podcast like halfway by a mom. MOM, blow game. Okay, Kaden, thank you's making into the random eight. Um, are you whenever? I swear to God, if you don't got no Logano's gonna getting because it's l gon up. He has enough, like points. Ellie has enough points. He'll get in Um blaming. Same thing, true X, same thing. He's really consistent now. I Kurpush the think he's getting advanced. Hate either win one of the race is hit or win Tallagega, or he gamer in the VEGGAS. Who you other win Talladega or point self in whill of consistent runs and stuff like that. The guys going out in pretty much to going home for the season. Bowman, custer, Amiral and Kyle Bush, Cow Bush all Alex Bowman. He didn't got enough points. He's really in consistent now. He was really consistent in beginning but like he's he's clearly faded a lock. There's something with that team. That isn't his last top five. Darlington, Darlington. Know he had a top five atom at Dover, but like before that it was Darlington. Dude, that's yeah, it was. He's like William Bayer in this season they've all taken a seast eve won. He was like yeah, any they he dominated the six hundred. Yeah, Bowman was actually really good in the six hundred. I I always forgot about that because the six hundred was just such a boring race overall. Always a boring night. It's because that a fake package, you know, other than two thousand and nineteen. Two Thousand and nineteen, Wi put the two thousand and nineteen was a good cook six hundred because in the end where tricks went for wide for the race win, that was just it is insane. David Ros was my favorite coak six hundred. Ever, course it was. Anyways, you put Charlotte and you put the package that we have now and it's an absolute snooze list. Nothing Fun happens in the six hundred at all anymore. It's literally just them. For it's an endurance race. There's no reason to push the issue until the end, just like any other endurance trees. Okay, but when we get to the end there's like a six second get back times out of time. That's a NASCAR is. It's my master. Is Not supposed to be like. It's not supposed to be like side by side racing and like everyone like bumping each other the way with the bumping run. They need to test the sept of the guns driver force. They need to go back to the Joan for row. Okay, I need you go back to my predictions. I so custer that's easy stuff. He's out, he ain't heat, rookie, ain't making it to the drama crowd. Yeah, I'm making around a twelve. Yeah, yeah, out of a okay, continue, okay, Um. Anyways, I'm a ruler, unless and unless Nascar is like, unless an Askar goes back to giving Alma role of the bay, like the pole's not winning, then he's he's done. You can't deny that that had had to be at least a little bit slightly ragged. Now, yeah, that's Asians right then. That there's no way. There was no way. Kevin Harvick and Erica coble ways start front row each race and barger's junior and round lady with no Joey would consist. Really, heart itch always qualified first, I feel now like top three. ALLEYST TRUEX and blady always qualified on the back row. I swear to God, I remember that. I swear. Like three races in a row they qualified twelve and eleven. All right, mascars raked comfirmed. Anyway, that's the loss of viewers. Um, all right, whatever. Okay, Gay Kyo Bush, two thousand and twenty. He has like one stage point. That's it. It was like Kansas. Yes, thank you, Katin. You're welcome. Yeah, so it was. It was like Kansas. He has one stage point. It's two thousand and twenty. It's Kyle Bush, and everyone above them is pretty much better than them. I mean you could argue Kurt Bush, but like Kurt Bushes make a final four. This is who's going to the Phoenix, not homestead, because NASCAR likes to crush dreams and and traditions. I'm sent was what of such a creature? For why would you? I get it. You put billions of dollars about...

Phoenix. But like there was nothing wrong with Miami. There was nothing rough Miami. Hey Me, was such a beautiful truck. Yeah, it's you know the path. It was pretty good with the package to honestly, yeah, it was one of the Batter Model House with the package with yeah, Cuz you actually run multiple grows with it and it's not like bottom feeder all the way. It's one of like the three mile the half that was killed with the package. Yeah, all right, so pretty much a lock. We all have it. If you don't want have a Harvard and Hamlin your final four. Have you watched this season? The yeah, but we said hand, we said Haylon was a lock last year. You saw out he had to win Phoenix. He was, he was, he was a yeah. Well, yeah, well, I'm the exactly blame the package for for that one. Form First, because see, what do you mean? He's literally he's literally read season last year and that was a dumb idea. Yeah, really gave every short track went accurate the entire season. Okay, so the other two pencil teammates at blaming, because Lowski Blaine's making it. He will win one of the one of the final races, pretty good at Kansas. Oh, Texas. Yeah, he's pretty good at Texas. He'll probably, I bet, how like top three at them. Marns, Phil it's either hell in one of them. Were will be like that. Fourth Guy, because Lawski, he has been incredibly like under a radar this year. Like if there's a third guy, without a doubt, it's kissed Lasky. He's been ex stremely consistent this year. Besides harvaring Hamlet, he hasn't one that much. He had to given wins, but he his US a wepten. Yeah, well, window, window wind, more like chase. Deserve both of those races. Well, then, okay, you do. You're not even going to go to that because there's so many guys that deserved wins this season. We can't, we can't even dive in a Mat. then. Who didn't kind of Bush and deserve any no, no, he deserves right where he wins this season. True, do you know who deserves like five this season? Blainey and Elliott, pleading you the one, like the first three exactly. Should have bought the first three races in a row. Bowman. Bowman owned auto club. Okay, I'll well, I forget about the first three races. Where they were? I was like a year ago. A year ago it was Daytona, Phoenix, it was Dayna Vegas. Oh No, members at fourth race. So Auto Club was the third one and Phoenix, or Las Vegas, was the second one. Yes, I ow not making a fun of for Ladano. He ain't make it. He ain't still another one. That's right, you heard it. You heard her from me first. Yeah, make it. There another one. He isn't that consistent and he he isn't using tricks. Is Bumper, because I guess he's also not making it. Trux isn't making it. He ain't winning he ain't winning, to find a couple races. I know he's been consistent. Log Off, Katin. That's how you're gonna be. Just log off. I would like to counter argue. Just log off. If you'RE gonna argue. That's what that's what we're here for. Argue. Okay, what try give me. Why? BLAMEY OVER TRUE REX? Because, BLA, I could. I could seek his Lawski over true rex. But Blaney, my predictions you're going to earn at you're in a witness greatness when I get like watch blaming all make it out of the rounded twelve and you just fools all of our championship for us. She's elling. Isn't making it that sense. That's really sad. W Yeah, not, not this series. Not Making it. They're just like he's just like a tick off Blaineycauslawski. He's I guess he's. I guess he's like a takeoff true x, if that's what Kana wants to hear. WHAT TAKE OFF? What? What are you? How are you bashing tricks now? I'm not bashing him. I'm saying that like a lie. And trucks are like even in like the season, boy, two rises with which better through the last ten eleven races. She's Ellie is like what six toll five? Sure says. What nine top five in a row? Hey, if you want to look att the last ten races, you are the one thing that stands out between the two. The when...

...going get any yeah, but hey, I've accounted that, though, because Kay wants to counter my stuff. Sent. Yeah, but if you want to use just one win versus zero, then wouldn't that be the same argument with Byron and Elliott to their first Nineta versions? No, because because Byron got seven top five, but he more can and she's really get it. If you finish is a lowe's white chase. Elliott playoff points than tricks does. Right, no, if you're rewarding. But all right, he's got six more points that trist so, so, so you can't. You can't even at that point. So okay, like that's stupid. Using winds, well, I mean especially one wind to known like that's that's a dumb argument. Okay, I'm just gonna finish my productions off her Bush ain't making it. Yeah, I'm not screwing on playoffs again when he doesn't make it. He's not that consistent. He's totally going to like Elliott, it into like the playoff and to the round of eight and just like not do anything. Something Larsen did, but the one time made the round of Eight. But yeah, that's it. Harvey's taken home the championship. It's Harvick at Phoenix. I get Damon won their last year but like Harvard's one. They're nine times and it's two thousand and twenty. The guy is like a rocket ship, every race, every week. So on. Yeah, there's my predictions. Chris, you wanna Nick whenevery? Is it? No? No, Oh, no, yeah, Nick Knicks going take so at Darlington. We're gonna see Denny Hamlin get his last one of the year. We've seen him and be pretty successful they recently and I think he gets it done this weekend at Richmond. I think it's going to be true x good. I Kyle Bush at burstal. I think. I think Bush. I feel like he has to get a win. I feel like having Bush without a win it just seems too good to be true, or good or bad, depending on who you like. But UH, round of sixteen. This is going to be boring, but I have dylan custer to Benedetto and boyer going out. I think it's pretty much same old, same old with them, for I don't see them running better than any of the other twelve, including Byron. I was considering switching Byron and Boyer, but I didn't. So yeah, I'M gonna go dyllan, custard, defender Detto Boyer. Round of twelve, I have HARVEC winning out Vegas. I have Lugana winning at Daga and I have chase Elliott winning the Rovol I feel like Elliott. He won their last year. I was last year. Now that's Today. Okay, yeah, yeah, I don't know. I think Elliot's just too good on road course is to not lose. Same with Lugano at Daga. Round of twelve, I have Byron, Bowman, all Marola and Kurt Bush going out. And then round of eight I have harvec again at Kansas and then this is going to be weird, I have Christopher Bell at Texas. I think HARVEC is going to be close, but I think it's going to be a close finish at the end and I think bell's going to get a win. And then Martinsville I have two X. I think surex wins his way into the final four. At a short track round of eight, I have chase, Elliott, Keslowski, Kyle Bush and Blaney going you, and then final four. This like cat and joy. I Have Harvard winning Phoenix, and then I have true x coming second, I think Lugano comes third and Hamling, for I think Hamlin chokes another one this like every other year. And Yeah, I mean I was pretty quick, but yeah, those are my I have too much to say about the hey. So my turn is that we're down to apparently yours is the most controversial, so let's see. This taste thing's gonna get a playoff waiver driving for all ten races. Okay, all right. So we'll get to the boring part. Harvey Camlon advance. I completely disagree. Okay, piss off, because I was ski Lagano, Elliott true explaining. Kyles going to advance now'm Rolla. I originally had Byron, but I'm going to put curt in instead of Byron, and then I have Austin,...

Dylan and Matt de Benedetto. Okay, boy, who do you have them over? Just please be soing realistic. Iron custer, Boyer and Bowman. Yeah, that's promise. But, like I I'm gonna have to take some cuts out of the chat now I have it this way, because the short tracks, Deby's gonna be good on those and correction going to be get our Bristol. He's mad that get our rich man. He'll manage some way to do good there. I mean he is in better equipment. So you know, yeah, we haven't been there all season. So it's completely, you know, different. No one's been there with the short track package at Richmond this year and don't have Byron because it's it's really Environ boys. Boys not going to make it because he's he's on the back side of his career. We but did you hear the rumors that boy or and I'm Rolla are most likely staying with Hoss this year? Next year, I think Belan like. So we didn't. We didn't mention it, though. Is a one car exffinity team and it sounds like Bristo's gonna go to go fast. So I do kind of understand it because like, yeah, Jones is going there. No, yeah, if Jones is going anywhere, he's going to that forty eight. It's either Jones. Yeah, it's either Jones goes to the forty eight, forty a shtchdown. I don't think there's many other better options and that in less and less depends. Are Not the Jones stuff, but I think for Stewart Hasson, Boyer and Omall, I think it all depends on what happens with Kyle Larson. I think Marcian would Larsen will go to the exfinity series and one hundred and fourteen races next season. That's what he's coming out. I don't see. He's kind of action. I don't. I don't think it'll be next year. I do have a way to be next year. thinkause boy already said. Boy Already said he still watched a race in the cup series until he's not having fun, and he said he's still having fun. So I think maybe give him one more year and then he'll go over to the booth. And then one more year for Almrolla, because if he doesn't have a win by then again he's just not doing as Stewart Hass expected. So then you can put Brisco and Larson and yeah, but we're race scenario. For Larson, he can just get sponsored by Hoss animation, like cold custers. Yeah, like I cause yeah, I sure anyone's gonna pick them off. Obviously lessons. So anyways, who sponsors him in a there racing it? Does he just sponsor himself? Awesome watches. There's summon farms left ask style that I'm texting. I have a friend who watches their last it's something farms like. I can't remember the name of it. If they if there's so if the I thought they were like anserus. He's also got a planned by as a sponsor to yeah, that's surprising. Plan be hasn't dropped him because that's loyalty. Yeah, but anyways, well, I mean the drop them that? I guess the'll have to go to their plansy. So round of Eight. Hamlin, Harvig, because I was Kei, Lakano, Elliott, true explaining, and then farms. It's family farms. And then I almarola is going to make the round a eight. So that knocks out Dylan, debby, Kurt and Kyle, because I can agree with Kyle. I could definitely, definitely agree with Dylan. I don't even know how you put Dylan in the round at twelve and byby. That's just a put Dylan in the round of twelve, because all he's done is gone stage points all season and finished well enough to get some kind of points. So He's good at getting stage points. So that's the plane and simple reason why I took him. The reason why I don't have current advancing is because he just has garbage luck in the playoffs. Playing simple, something's going to happen. Remember when he made the round of A and was it? Was it two thousand and eighteen? Yeah, it was. Just that's what Stuart. That's what Stewart has took up half of the round of eight spots but only made one car break the championship for Yep, Yep, but uh so. That so. Then my final four, Kaden, you might just want to leave, AREVAC is, tricks is out, HARVEC hamling, chase...

...and Brad. Why what a chase? And okay, I can agree with Brid you know, Brad is been good this season. I think he Shan Yeah, gonna, but this is pay. Chase is going to win Kansas. To that he's no, I'm with them. There's no way. I wish he's chase will win Kansas. That's how he had. Okay, me and Nick, me and Nick are on the side that chase will make it. You guys are on the Oh no, Troy's also saw on the side that chase will make it farther than a faith in his own driver. I'll support him to the ends at Earth. I'm just being realistic. I'll support him in the all three DNF he gets in the round of way this year. Yeah, so, and then Phoenix, harvy's gonna win. The reason why I didn't choose blamey for the final four. I'm just thinking logical as a Blay Fan, because his luck, man that dually a hundred and fifty laps over race and then crash or have something mechanical happen or just pitch strategy will be totally against him. And why not? True, he just hasn't really had the speed. He will. He will. He hasn't had this speed easily, let laughs, in the last like eight races and you finished top four in the last. You also want to know I don't take tres because Eliot's going to win a race, brand's gonna win a race and tricks is not going to outpoint Harvard and Hamlin. That is very logical. See, I can agree with that, but I can't agree with chase aale wedding. I think. I think, you know, I think I'll have a shot. I think he'll make maybe get fifth and points. But if I have I think the real determiner is going to come down to if Harvard and Hamlin are going to win races. Because if they don't win races and let's say true rex, Lugano and Chase Make It, and then it comes down or t x Legno, Harvard, let's say that. Now it's going to have to be hamling out pointing, which he's probably gonna unless he chokes it, which wouldn't be surprising, unless he has to outpoint for for other drivers who are I have just not been that speed. So that's who I think it comes down to. Then I don't have joey making the final four, because Joey Plain and simple at that point. And almole is just going to fall apart because he's not going to know what to do. Harving, Harvard, Kle win, Texas, chase a win, Kansas, Bradwin, Martinsville, no, Yep, no, I don't think bradwins wines Wille. No, no, Yep, I think true x wins, Barins Wille Churson, though I've checks winning cansas. Never Mind, Chris is gonna get dumped on in the group cat after these two races. Watch who happen here s after Chase Salliott fails to after the sal for make a round. Watch the final four. Happened, and WHO's going to be laughing then? I want to okay, I have minor now, and I want to see who has the most accurate playoff list. At the end we shall that five dollars in and then we all put five dollars and that we've planned out the future of the playoffs, we can talk about the future of the Cup series with the next Gen. so cold custer tested the next Gen car at Dover this past week or a week ago. Did he did five hundred laps. He did five hundred laps over Monday and Tuesday, after doing what six hundred and twenty two on Saturday and Sunday. So the man logged one hundred and twenty two laps at Dover in four days. Yeah, quick math looks so he look he logged over eleven hundred miles in four days at Dover. Out of all places he had more uncertain and negative feedback because it's a lot different of a car and it's more unknown really, and he was saying how the tires in the steering are a big difference compared to the gen six car that we have now, and if he knew how the Gen force drove, it would probably be along that line. twere like there's this fine line and you can hit that line and throw it down some massive laps, but if you go over that line just too much, then you're just going to do a one hundred and...

...eighty in the middle of the corner. Definitely interesting stuff. They did point out this was the first time they actually said which motor they were running. Their running the seven hundred and fifty horsepower motor at Dover. So like what I saw, what I heard from gold coaster was the fact that the car is you have to drive perfect. If you snap lease you're going to spin the car like even if you's get like a little bit of theres. Yeah, we want to we want to talk. It's literally just like the genfours then, because, as what drivers would say back then with those like if, yeah, but like you're going to spin out. Yeah, I'm just interested to see what the whole like Gammick of this is. Is it going to be like you have to have one hundred percent scale to actually do it, or is it just going to be like, you know, seems like it's got playing bad drivers. It seems like it's going to put it more than the driver's hands because, well, yeah, Joey, Joey had positive feedback and you would think he'd be a lot more honest, given that he's more of a veteran than the guys that have tested so far. The only reason Byron was so negative about is because when he tested dry well, they were also racing here. He was also an auto club and it was forty Bolin hour wins. How are you going to get accurate data from something like that? I'M NOT gonna lie. I just I'm just not looking forward to then six and seven, the next Monck, you don't even know I've been taking attention for you didn't even watch Nask or what? He doesn't even he drives the number nine exactly. He didn't even answer you, guys, Bill. Oh, yeah, Bro Jeff, Gordon, acy, Gay, yeah, Casey, case can'ts not that kidding case. He can suck, but he finished like what twenty eight the points in his final year. I mean he missed ten races. Ten, ten, yes, the Darlington was Darlington. Onwards Darlington. Sorry, girl, he WHO'S gonna lose? Gonna win? Why? I mean, I already said by but yeah, okay, I got a giggles. Lagano, holdwn was gonna win it. Caden, your turn the top. Oh No, who's gonna win? Day? Toto, I have because last gee on my bracket, but my heart goes with true x. But for real, Darlington. It's going to be an interesting race. I'm a stake, as I ask you. Yeah, let's see. T REX. No, God, no, no trust in him winning. Darlington. God, he wanted two thousand and sixteen. Would have won in two thousand and seventeen if you didn't have a flat higher and with two to go. It's always a would have. Could have. Yeah, I say would have all the time when I talk about junior. He Rex would have won if you yeah, if junior junior would have won, if he had talent and thirty something. That like spinning in the car. I think that's a good age. It's a good note. Claney Blaney's gonna Win, drying Blaney Blaney Y. WHAT'S STATS? Do you have to back up that? None exactly how long? You Long? As long as a bad pro back doesn't win that I'm fine. Yeah, as long a bad throwbacks gonna win. Oh, yeah, that's definitely I mean tricks is running the same throwback of the last you wins. Actually, Jones, better know in actually strow back. Dude, job sweet good. I really hope he is miss the act as their back to back backtobacks of the five hundred. I love that. This wouldn't be that bad because I ust win his last year, but pretty funny. and Jimmy one like the week after when he won, win Darlingtown. Yeah, I've been yeah, the next four races. The next four races are won by Jones, Johnson, Reddick and bell. Oh, chaos with the Brag. Then custer the wind a little boyer. Then by Byron gets a second win of the season. All right, and then cut custer clinches the championship. But Phoenix, after everyone recks everyone, Joey...

...joys takes the lead and then, all right, then final thoughts. Everyone make final thoughts. The word. Okay, okay, Jimmy's out. Good, that's my final. Oh, I got nothing after that. Is this gonna be a third Darlington race of the season. And is that the first time I've done that? Gon This in track club? I'm pretty sure three. Yeah, Broky, so we just ended there. Yeah, thanks for a lesson this far. It's been a long but weird one. Thanks getting for putting up at yeah, thanks for putting up a cave and days the happy kids see. Okay, in ass back, y'all know it, and skating caught CADENCO or nineteen. Add that. Yeah, you can have that. Yeah, it's okay, no one's gonna act. Yeah, it's been real. It's been real. Who? It's been real, but hasn't been real fun? I'll know it's been fun. Real kind of story, talking sauces and yeah, yeah, yeah, that's been out. Yeah, Chris, the power to kick caten. Ye, Huh, I could do that any time I wanted to.
