Welcome spebees. Concludes with underdog Tinkety to five hundred, as did a tone of road. Course, gets another run this coming weekend. You're listening to the Nascar Hotspot podcast starring me, then ask your hot spot. Let's go into that episode. Welcome to the show. I'm Troy Jum by, Chris and Caden and speed weeks is over and we're still going to be in Daytona by we stopped the review. All that went on a speedbeaks was pretty a stor work in a couple different ways and there's a lot of exciting moments. I was there, I would know. So, Um, what what did you guys think of USPEAKS? It was I mean there was no bad race is up until a five hundred, which I mean the five pounder. Wasn't a bad race per se, just nothing happened. It was just a boring race. So I'd like give it like a seven out of ten overall, I'd say I'd say the whole entire speed weeks was probably a eight and a half and I think people are dogging on a five hundred just because like it was a train, but we saw what happened a couple of times. That they decided to not be a train. It became an absolute hell, fire over wreck, especially at the end, literally, I mean shoot, the clash did the same thing with the end of the rays to. So, speaking of that, I'd rate it like, I guess, seven point five because, like all the races leading up to the five hundred, really good, but like the biggest races to five hundreds, the fact that like a kind of like disappointed a lot of us, pretty much all of us, brings the randy down a lot Um. So let's kick this off to clash, the first Bush class on the road course, and at did not disappoint like we all thought it would. As a person who vividly hates road courses, that was a good race. That was it was. It wasn't a fantastic right, it was just good racing overall. There were he's aggressive, there's good restarts, there was. It wasn't just what we all thought would be, Chase Elliot taking the lead or Danny Hamlin then just driving away. There wasn't a clear best car and even still on the final corner of the final actor, in the final Chicaine, I should say, we didn't know who's going to win it. Came down to Blaine and Elie was a classic finish. It was a great finish. Yeah, I'd say no, it was a really good race. You dedite had a lot of unexpected scenarios that we didn't think we're going to happen with the back stretch chicane, how that would be that would just become mud all over it, especially on exit. We saw it a few times actually, guys getting loose or even going into the wall. That front stretch chicane proved why it was there, though. I think NASCAR, not only for safety perspective, for making turn one, but also with kind of added that excitement into it that I don't think any of us really thought that it would, because we saw last year the final Chicane, Denny actually gained a lot on chase where you didn't have it and now he is. And we saw with the clash how it came down to chase some blaney and neither of them even one. But I'd say it definitely. It definitely canceled out a lot of those people hating on the road course for it and I think it kept the Bush clash still being able to be a part of MASCAR. Yeah, I I agree with that. I thought it would be born, but they changed, took the package a little bit. I forget what they did they but I don't remember. I swear that the seven hundred and fifty last year. Either way, this year was seven hundred and fifty and it made a lot better racing. It was easier to pass and I feel like last year, since everyone knew what they were doing, there's a lot of better guys. This year we had hamlet, true x, Chase Blaney that I was probably there the entire time. Yeah, Oh, yeah, I mean he won the damn thing, but you know, hey, well, you're saying that all five whole race. Yeah, like, I mean he wasn't bad, he wasn't not leaving a lot of but he was like he was. He wasn't the best, but he was there in the right place, so he was running great all race. He was that first guy outside of the contenders, like that's what yeah, yeah, and shure he noted on it. The change that they did. Instead of going with the, as junior ones called it, big ass spoiler, they decided to go with the actual road course in short track package, which is the small blade, and that proved to be a very big difference for...

...a lot better racing in general feed track, because last year's race was, yeah, boring as hell, but they changed it to the small spoiler and we saw just how much better racing it could be. Yeah. So, so the big the big thing about the Bush class Bush clash is is mud. It rained like the day of the day before the clash took place and drivers on the back chicane kind of like cut it a little bit, so they put like two tires on the dirt or the grass, but then it was mud. So all the mud kicked up onto the track. So ten laps in they we had have a debris caution so they could fix that and that was that was by a big factor the night because, yeah, it kind of like killed their vision and kind of a little bit and cars, well, see cars like that. I love seeing me like that. It was great. It has good had the dirt look to the cars like it was actually made him look like they were racing on dirt, which was impressive to see the amount of just how caked the front nose of almost every single car was. Kidding, are you listening to music? What we're doing? No, listening. Oh, I was. I was gonna say that back Chica and that was like a game winner. It was. It was really impressive how well that thing worked. I mean we saw a lot of spins there. There was the true acts where he would dnf like with like what seven ago, after five to go. Would even happen? He spun around and he just getting the dirt and he just go right. Yeah, that's exactly what happened. There was some dirt track and he just it just hooked his car around. Yeah, yeah, it was unfortunate. He was really fast, but Blaney, I think, was chasing him. And then there was I don't think they call this on TV, because Lawski spun. Yep, yeah, I saw that right away. Yeah, I saw what it happened with the corner screen. I'm like, yeah, I was looking. My Dad and I were watching it and I'm like, Hey, Brad Spun. He's like what do you mean? I'm like no, he's fun and then they panned it to him trying to get back up to speed. Never shot the replaying? No, never's other youres like get it on camera. That's one thing. Yeah, both of these TV broadcasters are lacking on is camera work. Was hilarious. It's a big track. But yeah, they were following the guy in front of them, whoever that was. I forgeted that might have been Bush or or something, I don't know. They're falling someone in front of them and they were focused on him and out of the corner of the eye to seek as low as you go around. Yeah, there's a Larry. Yeah, so, Um, surex is Shrek. spenning from the leaders probably like the biggest turning point of the race, since tricks was the fastest clearly, and he took the lead from Hamlin. But then immediately act they spawn. What the whose phone is gone off? Br We turn off your vinegs. Mike, just call me, Mike, Mike Recorn, right now. Oh Yeah, we can definitely keep that in. Okay, yeah, I can really keep that in. Yeah, we're definitely keeping that in. Those great I'm just like, Oh, Mike's calling me. Tricks are the fastest car for a bit, but then Blaney started hunting them down. Bladey was really chopping into his lead when as that trix was like slow, but Blaney was just wicked. I mean didn't true x stay out and then Blaney came in. I know, not a Bladey. Yeah, it's the difference was, yeah, I knew Blaney Bit, but didn't. Did tricks stay out? Did Yeah, okay, I mean lock it up. Those tires hading in a one on the race start really killed him when he was trying not to absolutely wipe out Dylan. So that was probably a factor. That's when, what is it? Blade just went to the outside of everyone on the restart. Sir, that's like two or three rows. Yeah, yeah, so, Um, that was a turning point. And from here it was chase Elliott who ritually starting the back and he finally made his way into the top five. He's stayed out. But then the the fastest car of the night, Ryan Bulaney. He he pitted four tires and this was a, I believe, five five laps shoot out to the finish. So blainey quickly took care of everyone, while chase, chase. His tires were killed, but I think you pulled away's like a second and a half or something like, and then Blainey quickly chasing down and with two to...

...go Blainey was on chases back bumper and got past them. What is the Oh, in like the kink he like got to is outside in the kink and then on the next corner, whatever you call that, on the Righthander, he passed them there and I realized Elliott never had the fastest car at one point and I raised other than that, like final half a lout, like he was always mean. He wasn't always there. took him all a long time to get up to the front. Yeah, but cautious cautions really didn't aid him that much. But like even in like the green flag run the beginning, I know she wasn't making up time that quickly. No, yeah, you passed like five or six cars in the first round. They like stall that. He's like fifteen for quite a while, like fourteen, sixteen, bad area. Yeah. So, so blendie gets plus chascomb to the white flag. But we thought this end a chase and blame. We just pull away, but he somehow stayed with Blaine all the way through the through the course, through the last lap. And then one notable thing is that blaney entering a corner was really bad, like I don't know why you like break if you break too much, or if you need to do that for the Carter. Yeah, it or the car like turn that way, but that's where chase gained a lot and turned the corner and then blame the pull away exiting. So on the backs of Cane Blaine, you here much gave chase that kind of run and opportunity heading into the front chicane. And then this is where everything right now. And Yeah, so going into the Front Chicane, I believe Blaanee goes a little wide in it, I think, and then chase goes to the right of M goes to the right a blaney and then, no, I'm just trying to be more released, Dude. Honestly, yeah, a little bit more free flying come. Yeah, dead is better. I'll keep along. You went this because anyone? Why? Because if he went actually try to make the Shgaine properly, you would have about punted out of the way. And the RAGIA Barton Grass. Yeah, it was like he was either getting rocked or getting rex well, and then the way he turned into the Chicane, if he would have just tried to take it wide, he wasn't going to make the chicane. Yeah, yeah, and seeing you, he had a I think you do. He had to come down. I think he knew he was gonna hit and them and at him. And Ellie at we're going to make contact and you're going to try and hit Elliott make sure that he could get away, and then he would have won. That was basically Elliott dumped blaney. There was they was. Yeah, yeah, so chase. Yet chase was all the way to the right that, if you want anymore right that he would have hopped the curb. Yeah, like the Chicane so tight that it's just a recipe for his ass going into wide there. You know, you know they're both of them are fully committed and it just turned out the way it turned out. And Yeah, we knew one of them entering that final chicane wasn't going to make it a whether it was going to be Elie or Blaine. Yeah, so. And then Kyle Bush, who we pretty much didn't you're a single word from all rays, gets past chase and wish to Bush glass. I think that was his second clash win and that's that's about it. You know, it's a clash win, it really doesn't matter. Then it's just an exhibition race, but it's it's a lot of experience heading into this coming week now for day tone of road. Course, that is helpful. So now we know who to look out for, guys like Chase Blaney, Hamlin to while the dominate, Trux, of course. Yeah, sure, X. Yeah, there's a couple of underrated guys that a lot of people aren't either. Right, get to that later. And Yeah, it's sane. I Rate Fourth, I think, other than like what, Dumping Bowman into the wall, like, let's if we moved a few people with that. Yeah, people, that rex, he was racing, like, I'm not saying he was racing overly. Agraphs that I think he was just racing are free. You, knowing that this is just an exhibition, right, I mean, what didn't didn't he finish like fourth? If, yeah, you gotta. I'm like for I just had for because third, first, Cor Bush to, she's silly. Third, Joe with a ground on. Fourth, Time Radic and fifth, five, William Bron iron existed. That, yeah, fire ms of really byrons actually low key good of the Daytona road course. He's look a good at road courses in general. That leads us into poll crawl. Fine, that next night, yes night, we carding...

...somebody that extremely disappointing. During the clash, it was a tight deal. I'm tied Dolan. Yes, I don't know. I don't know what to expect. I didn't. I didn't expect it to win. I'm not saying I expected him to win, but I we saw it. Charlotte Roll Wili, he was even well that I know there was a rain, tires and all that, but even still he was running pretty decent. He was running like top fifteen, closer to top ten. Tonight he just ran what like eighteen, nineteen the whole night. He got up to you got up to the top. He was. Yeah, Bowman Spin, I think, oh, yes, you are. Yeah, he was. He was like nine or ten with too like two to go, and then he finished like eighteen or something. Yeah, I so poll qualifying night, Hendrick Motor sports takes on other front row lockout for the five hundred, with Alex Bowman First and William Byron Second. Alex Bowman put down a wild lap which many green fren by like what to Carlyns knows? Yeah, so notables that were fast. You know, Suarez was fast early. It took a good amount of cars to beat him and then stenthouse ended up beating him and then Bubba was pretty predictable. We knew he was going to be fast. I don't know, like, I don't know fourth fast, but like he be stenhouse news up top, and then Byron went, he took. He took first for a little bit and Almirola was so close to beating Byron, but not enough leaves. On Alex Bowman, I think he was one of the final cars to go out to dig the poll and his average speed was one hundred ninety one point two six one miles an hour. And another storyline in this phrase is David Reagan and the Ryan priests both locking themselves in on time, which is you know, it saves a lot of stress. It's huge for both teams. Both teams because, like David Reagan has never needed the racist way in, and I think seeing with priests. But of course it would be a shame for Priese in the thirty seven car to Um to miss the five hundred. Like deal deserve that kind of stuff. Another thing is that no, Gregson failed tech like three or four times, yea three times, so he wasn't able to make a qualifying lap. She was sent to start last and his duel. Yeah, and it I'll even missing the five hundred because of garrets pass those things. Yeah, okay. So any comments about poll qualifying? I mean like it's bull qualifying. It was predictable, front row whatever. Yeah, yeah, yeah, also, Chevy S Chivy is gone every five hundred pole in the gensis car. It's pretty wow. Yeah, Patrick, Dylan Gordon, Ellie, Elliott Bowman, Iron Bowman. We got it last year. Standos stahouse and that's thanks. Yeah. So that leads us to the duels. We won't talk about that first one or someone like dominated a lot of it. CADEN's favorite driver of the entire series along his own. I didn't watch the driver of his entire series absolutely dominated duel and going to die and just chuck it against the watering man's can't take a push at any superspeed where he's he's been leading, or like his duel race one. His door is because he had for fourth behind them. Narrows it actually talk about the duel race and yet I hunt you, you bitches. So anyway, the first remember what happened in the first door is that's why I'm racing. Reference Up Eric. I'm rolling just clinic ran. Yeah, so it was a Ford Clinic pretty much. Eric imill started a second and took the lead. Who Bowman started first but he fell back. They were pretty racy? Yeah, Um, they were pretty racy in the beginning, but then it kind of mellowed out and the fords got up front and of a single file. But in the race to get into to get into it all, it was between Tie Dylan and Austin, Syndric and like. Of course, is a stupid rule where there was a stupid of rule where Austin, if you lock yourself into the five hundred, you're not an open car anymore.

You're in the five hundred. Why is? Where was? I don't get why Apprechi was still things are an open guard. Even if he wrecked, he was still going to make the five hunds. What was the point? I'm still having preases an open car. Tie dlan ran a much better race Austin. CINDRIC choke but still made it because of time. I think cindric proved in the five hundred way he made the race. All right, let's continue one. He's twenty four cars right now. It's still he laughs with Denny Hamlin, Joey Lagano, Bradcazlowski, who is the who all is more teammate chase elliot was still in it. Michael McDowell was still and I wonder what he did, where he finished. Gonna find out later. So as the fords were dominating the field, Tie Dylan ran an amazing race. Amazing race. She was like top ten. All Rays Um cinders also kind of like top ten. But then undergroun fly pit stops, he spent on pit road, so that put him a lapdown. We had to do his drive through. So it was up to tie dylan not to choke it. And on the last lap coming out of for tie kind of goes up the track and Sworez goes under him and ties them when him just dies. And then priests goes it outside the last second and tie gets based out of the Daytona five founder, which he doesn't deserve at all. I mean he he had no say or any of that and like how his career has gone, like of Jermine, shutting down all that, which tie just turned right and Ruck the failed that I would have been. That would have sparked controversy. That would have been funny. You know, he probably would have gotten kicked out if he just straight up turned. If you just see his gloves there's there's no vook gets on the final lap, isn't? No boys have had on the final LP. Yeah, you're going for the win. I guess. Grant, grant and finger didn't get anything, that is sure. And he literally just went like that. Yeah, that's your must only thing. It was really it was caution free. So Tie missing the field is pretty much like the only you know, I'm a Rolla one it, but yeah, we don't he he almost lost it, then he wanted again. So off the duel to, which was hell a lot better. This was a lot more of aggressive field, of a lot more big names and stars and everything like that. So the big fight was against no Gregson and it has grala and I didn't have Gret Smithley even in my mind. And to fifteen good and fifteen laughs to go and I'm like, wait a minute, this guy can stay in the draft. And Yeah, so I think, yeah, the lead changed hands. Are Good, a good bit. It was. It was really good between like true eggs, Dylan Harvich, Iron Blaney. I don't know why Byron even raced race them because, like I said before, you have nothing to win and everything go lose. And and he lost everything because the ending wreck at the end. I guess is skipped that ere do you guys want? They're talking to the wreck. was kind of like heared smithly now using his head all. That's what about? Yeah, people trying to put it on bread, but it was they were just following harvake and Smith he wasn't even there yet when he just poked his hole in and smantly the same one who, when they were racing a camp couple of years ago, it was like Brisco and bell battling for the lead and then smithlely gotten the way and then ended up wrecking Christopher Bow Huh. I believe that's him. How does he come a ride? Like money? Has Money, I guess. Yeah, money, but like what is he even done to show a remotely little bit of talent? Like he hasn't even done good an exfinity. Like I can't recall one race where I said, wow, Garrett smithy is being impressive. So it's just sports. All of the money now. Yeah, the final like run to the finish, because I forget what the other caution was for. Oh, Alfredo, like Brisco cut a tire...

...and Alfredo and Gralla with them and Garla got a lot of cosmetic damage, but they were to fix it, but he was like a lapdown, so they needed a caution for other other open cars. The wreck of front of him. To make it in pretty much a lot of luck. And so for the next seventeen lap run he Garrett Smith. He's working hard on no Gregson and Noah was giving it up and he drove his heart out and he was he was giving Smith Ley room and he was being very like respectful to Smith Lee and I feel like Smith he was like not using his head as much, like he would just dive it wherever there was and it was way too early for that, in my opinion, and it ended up causing them and he ended up diving it down and three wide and then dying and taking out no with them. said. Noah was at the race and pretty much Kas Garla just had to survive two laps and he was into five hundred and he made it. Now for the race up front, Tu rex leading on the final lap on the bottom and then I forget. It was on the outside. I think it was Dylan. Would it have been dylan? Someone was on the outside of him. Tricks. Try to throw a block and I got stuck in the middle. So was it harbic Tris fell all the way back. That was the end of his chances to win at a super speedway. Not even a raise. But it was a duel. I've really wanted it. I really wanted a side by side bass pro shops card todd. I would ask proshup that wouldn't say that would have been awesome. Yeah, he got trix did when? So I don't care. I Know I've heard Austin Dylan would basically manage to hold on to the little lead from there. I mean not much really. Yeah, but, but, but I had to lead the dream for you. And then Austin. Austin went high off of for and got a big run off of Harvick and then just cut low because bubbly just left the entire bottom open, didn't bubble almost gets fun like Brandon's ownes did. That was at enough for a hundred. That wasn't a fin. That was the stage. Yeah, because you come in front of Joey pretty much. Yeah, bubba literally almost recreated that from the night before. Yeah, why not? Three favorite drivers across each series? I'm terrible races. Means they don't know. I don't expect any the more. But you know, Austin doome won the duel, which pretty cool since it's twenty years after gales death. So it's coming your points later. Three, three in victory lane trucks. I'll let you guys would really take over that one. I didn't watch a whole lot of it. So baby, so, Johnny Sauder, Johnny Souder took the pole for the truck race. Yeah, yeah, well, I kind of. I gotta pull up those thick and raising our friends a might quicker doing this in you or what the hell? Let's just considered pretty much they prone battling in the beginning. Oh, right off the start, Taylor Greg did even go off this are and there's huge checkup and it ended up killing James Busher, who started last, ended up finishing last because a lot of damage. That's a lot of damn yeah, there's a lot of damage on the front of his his truck, and that pretty much ended his night. Oh No, Tina great brook, something in is. What did they say? Did they say drive line or something else? I even hear what he broke. Honestly, the end of Stage one. So from here, Raphael Assard, he took the lead and stuck with it with his GMS teammates and it was a it was a pretty it wasn't like close, like like a close finish the stage one, but it was pretty exciting finish to it all. So, yeah, Raphael Lessard took stage one, which is a big start to the season. You know, dare krause put up like five more costs and stuff. Oh, Oh, a bad, he's fun like through. Yeah, and then the next major thing a lot of racing, Sabe by side between thors for and GMS, mainly like I think it was sawed by side with like it was like Tyler and German Todd Gilland for a while. And then there's a caution. They restarted and then a lap sixty six, the big one happened, which took...

...out took out Ankorum, it took out start freezing, sheldon creed, Todd Gilling, Josh Realm. Yeah, he's thirty three. Yeah, set took a lot of contenders like tyler, increment, todd going. They're really fast and start freezing. Like he wasn't really fast, but you know, it's a contending truck. I guess Kinda get restarted making another three laps, but we really start making three laps of racing and then another quote unquote, big what happens? Todd Gilland Matt Craft, think it's a little bit of damage, start freezings out. After this. Brett Mofaz also involved and John Harding, Dam a, check this one. Todd to yeah, yeah, a todd a major damage. Also start freezing which which is a shame. I feel like todd definitely would have been up there and maybe would have won in the end. Him and David had good trucks, like when they got together they were going play. Yeah, yeah, they're working the other. That's pretty cool to see. I'm there the mine working. I I as screwed up because, like I mentioned, like the anchor wreck before, and that's when anchorm got spuns. That wasn't even like a big one. anchorm just clu or something like that. So then way we were on like six to go, and then all that ninety six the actual big one. I swear this, the actual big ones. A lot of trucks evolved and I got footage of this one. I'm happy when I have foots. Were crashes, especially when, I don't know, my favorite was in it. So this this, this one took out tyler anchrum, John Her name check, drew dollar, Raphael Lasar, Austin hill, Johnny Sawder got a little bit of damage and Carson host of our those just the real notables us in the twenty five. Again, wasn't oh that's to make you my beaters. Yeah, he was also contender in that brand new team. He almost brought him a win, like he was like leading a little bit too. Didn't Peter's cause the wreck might, don't you? Oh, yeah, he caused. He caught. He's the one that caused the wreck. Is He got coming down on drew dollar? Yeah, he killed it was stupid, like, I mean he knew he wasn't clear when he kept coming down. Yeah, it was really stupid. I don't know what even so this this set off a Tulupsh you down, which had thorstboard all up there with Ben Rhodes. Matt Craft was up there and granting fingers up there, homiest doors board. Yeah. So also on the restart David Gildan was second and I'm like get the upset and then he fell back. He just like dipped on the restart. I guess he's like yeah, my son's not here and then he just drove away. Said, yeah, I'm not doing that's man. Yeah, in the wreck, coming to the triggers, like every ended. So on the restart. Who would even thought this was even remotely possible, but Corey Roper took the lead on the white flag and he's leading down the back, leading in three league into for and in three and fleeting out of Polish. Yeah, he had a huge pushing three and four, and so we're sport of course kind of ganged up on them and gave Ben Rhodes a huge push and corey really he didn't really know how to react and they didn't lock them with a you durn. So Been Rhodes went to is outside. I believe he had the Cory Roper didn't even Bob Been Rhods just went around the outside. Who Was it? Jordan Anderson, do your name? Went around on the end side. And then it wasn't a close of a finish last year, but it was a pretty still decently close finish. Ben Roads would come out on top, Anderson Second, Roper, third, Ryan J I didn't even know. Finally deserveing finish, finally gets more and then or post of our fifth creed just missed. So didn't. Yeah, so awful. For there's a huge wreck involved in guys like, I think, like Spencer Board was involved in finger dollar. The Guy said, I think I believe Krafton was involved to somewhere in this. But Yeah, you love. Yeah. So...

...he's talking about hockey. Yeah, we did blew a five to lead and that losing six five to Ottawa senators. Roll. Imagine choking that bad bro. It's leave. I'm just work. I'm preparing for playoff, preparing for the playoffs. Well, bed room currently leads the points. They second, Nima check is third, Chandler Smith fourth and granted friender five. Yeah, it's crazy. Cory rope for six, sleeper for the championship. How totally. Well, it's hard. Seven tied with Ryan True X. Oh, Austin Hill is nineteen. What a Trashman. I should so much. I don't even a wife. Awesome, now, awesome. Hell, just you just gives off really bad vibes all the time. It looks like a child. Yeah, expdn't you mention me? So exfinity XP qualify. We ended up being rained out. So two thousand and twenty under porns champion, Austin Syndric start on pole and we started second. The O Guy, those baby oh yeah, Max finity race, the beef. What's for dinner for Young Oh, what a great age one. Um, I don't remember much happening other than Dominantrty to Ford's. Yeah, and then up until like the final couple laps, Brandon Jones would take the lead and then he would end up winning stage one, the ninety by caution. It did not go. Call it now. There were several. There was, oh, that's right, stop the ninety. Two had two cautions, and then thirty six, Alex Lobay. Yeah, the bag just fun off of for yeah, in the middle of the like where there's zero air and just yeah, and then stage one ended, which was Brandon Jones. Stage two would start. It would go pretty tame for a bit. It go for like almost thirty lapsed, pretty tame and there was a it was a wreck on the front stretch, which was the one that involved Brandon Jones, which he had a hard hit. He tried to come down blocking. Who did he try and block? He tried to block it was a black car. That's all I remember. It was a black verses. Okay, was it Jim Burton. Yes, that's who it was. It was. Yeah, he came down, came down a block and then it was a pretty stupid block in my opinion, and then he just got raped through the graph. The splinter got all torn up and then he couldn't say it. Came back up the track, got hit and then straight into the wall. That was a heart as US rag. It wasn't nice. Coding where at his finest, I mean drills and good fingers. The good thing is he was spinning, because if he would have been going at full speed, that would have been disgusting wreck. He would have been heard. He could have been out for all while I would have been heard. Oh yeah, and then there was another wreck less than ten laps after that, I believe. Yeah, yeah, food stage. Yeah, it was the one car, six car. Oh Yeah, how did that all start? It's any forget. Thirty nine, is she? I first. Not many other contenders were in it. There's another reason. Gregson was in it. That's old Gregson. Wow, I I every I got to regain it here road right. Yeah, yeah, I want to pack. Yeah, ever, it else pretty much irrelevant except no gracks. News. Pretty much into clear of it all. I'll aartill. So was that all? Gar was? Now all guys number seven, all, yeah, that's yeah, I read they're all. That's so. Yeah. So someone just wasn't paying attention really, and Noah got hit in the rear and it was a big enough damage to the rear of his car that actually forced him out of the race, which is a shame because watching that car on the beginning he was without it was fast, in my opinion, without a doubt, the beast us. And then just over twenty laps later there would be another wreck. I was playing. That was with forty seven. Yeah, yeah, yeah, forty seven of weather and the ninety age. That is see SAR back of Rolla. Yeah, yes, that one. And...

...then after that, that was pretty after that was the there is a big, biggest crash. Yeah, Time Billin and all his back tiling from the most love joke the most hated man in a forty eight hours. Joke was racing was lined up on the bottom. They very much had the fueled, they had the field at hand. I found there they were. They would have won that radius problem exactly there. There is no reason, and I guess ty just went today outside of Hemrick and in the turn three. He was just barely not clear and just turned down and wreck down teen a. What a shit. Yeah, season this took out tie his study rate. Every man. Yeah, long guy or herbs, her Haley, Jeff Burning, brandon, Jones, Brandon Brown, brandon down, number Brown. That's right, boom three. was remember seeing that name. I remember seeing the number twenty three. What's his name? Josh's and white, Josh, Josh Barry. Josh Barry was in it too. Josh Barry was in it. Yes, yeah, that's the part that's so doing so good. Could Tell Josh buryin unnoticed, until all of a sudden it's like, Oh hey, yeah, running fifth. All of a sudden, Oh hey, yeah, well, Oh hey, he's in the wreck. Yeah, that's exactly this. This takes out this to that. That's an end to all the junior mortor sports driver who will not go forgner row. I think to one US two thousand and seventeen. Seventeen was read. Was Oh Ryan read? Okay, so then Johnny Twenty Eight, two hundred thousand and nineteen gody. So still that ends three years in a row for Jerem between what five between row they had won it. Yeah, it was like between Reddick Annett and Gregson. Yeah, so that was a lot of that was a lot of the feel, but there was still a good amount of competition left, and it for under RADIGO. Yeah, we to go. There was a wreck, which was the four car lane. Is lantic Astle, Battak and castle. Yeah, bone head and move. Yeah, he kind of gas. So Jeff burnt got to his outside quarter panel and Landy Castle just kept turning up and and every no rain flag around was eight laps, Jesus, thirty four point final restart. Didn't Harrison take the outside? is at the part that screwed him up? No, Syndric took outside actually, since, well, here's someprise. I thought cyndric would have taken the inside. Yeah, no, there was gonna leaves. centric was in the lead. I thought here were some okay, can we talk about Brett moffin man almost one that, oh my's the one that gave centered that push to just he was so underrated the whole race. Yeah, I'm just happy that at the end of the race. Yeah, that's and the season last year sender first love a forty. That's wrong. He go so Austin. Austin cindried blocked really well, like key didn't. He didn't cut it too tight on Harrison burn and Brett Moffat, but it was like just enough for like he blocked their run and you did it like three to four times during the last overtime you start to win. It wasn't like a sidebyside close finished that we were kind of like used to, but it was still pretty good finish after a really good race. Of opinion, really good race. Yeah, it was a good rate. It was probably of all the like duels and everything that I watched throughout the entire week. That was a bad play the best race. Yeah, I can't down. Yeah, syndric led the most laughs. Tied with the Harrison Burton like twenty eight laughs. Forgot. So syndric will win the race. Brett MOFFATT second, Harrison Burton, third, JEM Burton for and AJ Almondinger, who was surprised. He was pretty much a non factor. We're getting rid of rock over they get. The really hurts that team at super speedways. I' You noticed does yeah, the one time the colon cars got all together was the one time tied down. It was just like a Yo. Let me send this corner bro Immediate Death to the field notable fetishes. Brandon Brown. Six, pretty good round for him. Brandon Goodovic. I know this is last name, so don't it been all of Davik David. Now know why? I don't know why they give that mean the helmuch came. I'm like why? This Guy Ball people and even know you're being a...

...good thing that. You see how many times he got through a wreck and they're able to get yeah, well, Tie Dylan end up what almost blocking his wrecking his teammate day Nelimer, and he's still rebound. Finish. Nine, Ye, Joe Graf Jr. Yeah, Oh, tight down. Yeah, Oh no, I talking about Hamer. Oh, Hemmerdan, closer to tighten, befum, yeah, I see there. Barcerella, twelve, macaruly, Jesse leg. I mean, yeah, a lot of a lot of fifteen through twenty is really like notables, and that's kind of like crashed or had like an as. Yeah, Marcus got in one of the wrecks and he didn't destroy his front end in the grass, which was impressive. Danny boss, Dan, Danny Bomb, who is that? Danny Bone? Nineteen, yeah, people sham't to me how forty that's pretty much right now. Every yeah, if rats at a top twenty eight, they tell when it's kind of like yeah, blue, twenty two, your points leader. Oh, Austin syndrics are points leader by fifteen. When Tie Dylan, Brandon Brown, Harrison Burton, Jebbard? So realistically, Cindric has a seventeen point lead. He has a fifteen point yeah, I mean, yeah, realistically he has a seventeen point lead. Yeah, over, I got I think Tis. Yeah, you can're on. The whole schedule is like now. I was thinking. I was kind of he's going to run homestead. I thought it was it was a second rise for a second. The you next show, next time we see them they'll be going to the road course in which the currents points leader when looking for technically three in a row. Yeah, it's going to be impressive to see if he could do that. I mean, what outside of a J and? I guess we can throw Gregson in there. That's a those are wrong. You guys to worry about. All guys top five last year, remember, all manators, a couple of going head moves and spun some people. Yeah, so, Um. So that moves on to the big race. The Daytona, five hundred owner, five hundred Um being there. It was really awesome. In the beginning it was a really nice day. It was nice and hot. It was really sunny, almost a perfect day. I felt like sky was really clear and put bull did a really good tat really good job on the what do you call on the command and that fired them up. So Alex Bellwood to keep his poll position, but William Byron go all the way to the back and this would put him in. That would put Austin Dylan on the front row the three car. Cool stuff, very cool stuff. So we start the race and make it to lap three. The everyone saluting down everything until turn four and then Derrek Cope, which didn't deserve tote race and even there's the river in the race. No Right, you know, deserve to be in the race. But he exited quick. So he he pretty much blewe tire hit the will hard. He was out of the race, you know, I mean no one complained. Um. And then made a seven lap run, and that seven lap run more stressful because everyone was racing like it was the final lap of the data five want it and there's a lot of pushing and manufacturers getting together and everyone was shifting around. We were three wide, a lot of two wide and a lot of really, really aggressive bumps that that lasted until Lapu and fifteen was a fourteen for purteen. Cross you for fourteen coming into turn no, not even on the back straight away. Going to turn three, Kyle Bush gives Christ felt a big bump. That goes into bell giving I'm Rolla and even bigger bump, and I'm Rolla can't take bushes, so he just car right and into blowman and killing the field. This involved Marn Turex Junior, Eric Jones, Jamie mcmurray, Alex Bowman, Matt the Benedetto, Tyler Reddick, Eric I'm Rolla, Chris Busher, Ryan Blaney, William Byron, Ryan Newman, Eric Jones, Kurt Bush, David W bow Fredo, Christopher Bill, Kristopher Bill, God Dang, Anthonielle, Fredo,...

Daniel Haim work. While I was going through that list I was like Damn, I'm doing good. Name Americ Daniel Swerez. Daniel Swarz got the it's a new season. Even I have a cousin in the cup series into were getting series two years like two thousand and eighteen. Okay. So yeah, UM, tricks. It was like tricks. Mcmurray, Reddick, Reddick Byron Bell Ker, and that's a the only two way to move on additive where Christopher bow who led, you sack them o laps, and Jamie mcmurray, who's impressive. Jamie, Jamie would have definitely thin front more if it one was his only single file in too, if that's it, litter ring, but he, I mean he said the splitter would have been fixed. Oh my God, yeah, I was really hoping that's going to make you fastest laugh. And he he's still he's still ran the fastest lap in the race, which is crazy. Well, I mean, I can't really pull Bush in the blame for that because, I mean, he's giving a push you. We all know that's going to happen. They Tona. But Christopher Bell it kind of looked like he kind of turned to rite out the last second and hit Almolla in the right rear quarter panel. They didn't like hook him like bad like he moved on. So it's not square with this Arrow package. If you don't hit them dead on straight in the back, Ye, it's gonna be reckon. Get there yeah, which I mean I can't blame bell for that because I'm pretty sure he was obviously trying to keep it straight as he can, but I think it was just unnecessary racing which would probably end up costing we probably would have a different winner if that wreck never happened. I'm just going to say that right now. I don't put that a doubt. Yeah, Hamlin would not have swept the stage is if that wreck never happened. This race would have been a totally different race. Yeah, if that wreck never happened, which it's unfortunate, that's the way it is. But I mean, well, when you only have twenty seven cars on the track after one wreck, that's fifteen laps, fourteen laps into the race. Yeah, speaking open fortunate under caution, lightning was detected eight miles away, and that me how are we would be our run rade is, it was eight miles. So car sort flag, and this red flag would last five hours and forty minutes. In this time we had Chi's briscoe going to panda express, Ross just stain going to McDonald's and tyler redding somewhere. Yeah, Tyler Redick went to Tyler reddick going the shadows easy. Went to a forum restaurant and dining in and yeah, was it just an was it only an iges? It was only hymn. Seeing Tyler Redik chatters during the daytime and to five. N Hey, why are you rain tola? Did you? Did you see the video? Yeah, yeah, recognized when she's like you are a race car drive, Ye, to kind of help. You pulled up. What? Yah, he yeah, my Glover Fire Sup, but he also had a, yeah, a McDonald's hat on it, so I kind of gave it away. It's like, Oh, yeah, that's such an ugly scheme. Why what the one that you hate? That schemes your your couple years late on that. Yeah, five hours, forty minutes later and me get back racing. We did a couple pace laps, UM, not a couple weeks, a good amount of pace laps to kind of help drive the track, put the cars and we were off of his chase late, leading Austin Dal on the restart. I kind of missed the restarts. I don't exactly like everything that took place. The lead, oh, okay, and then and then then he hamlet took lead for forty more laps. Okay, that's his story. He went he went stage one. There was a caution before that is when I think chase BRISCO. I really I've not seen a single replay that because I haven't really felt health. Cut a tire and kind of Bris. Coodn't get. RISCO really got no damage from that. No, that's what it was. BRISCO cut his tire. Oh yeah, and then because the whole like wait a minute, the whole spender and hood like right above the tire just disintegrated because he wasn't going slow enough. Around twenty three laps after that whole thing and Denny Hamlin takes the...

...stage and then we go another forty one laps and Christopher Bell leads thirty two of those forty whatever laps from the restart and then bell cuts a tire. He blows a tire and he does a pretty good job of saving it. Nobody got damage from out, like nobody. Actually, yeah, it was like few damage. She like he tapped the Larsen's door and Larson like kind of like or so good, a better finish at the end when I hate Marie. I don't even know how a MC Murray spawn. He kind of spawned, but then saved it, I think, like him, and literally got together or some like that from that trying to avoid it. So after that you have fourteen laps and I think, I think I bet Hamlin led that one too. Let steep him. HAMLA would end up winning yashkamling and then there would be no caution in the final stage. Yeah, Toyota is really through that a square row that up. Toyota royally screwed that up. They had and having too good of a pit stuff and just flying away from his teammates and bubble Wallace having come down pet road again, that race was pretty much over and Christopher Bell, I don't remember what happened. I missed on that, so I don't even know. Like I remember watching a replay. I'm like, I didn't even know why him one was like back there. And then like I didn't even know until like until like later today, that bubb was a lot down. I thought on't leave that. Yeah, so that I really did get to make an extra piston stow. Yeah, it came down. It came down to everyone was saying, okay, we're going to start going at like what three to go, and then I got to two to go and then they got to the final corner, which who is pushing who? Now will was pushing Kauzowski, because Lasky, because I ask you, look to the inside, and then Lugano would go throw a block which would actually contact. Well done, will go straight up on the wall. He would collect others, you, because Lasky. Thirty seven, which is priest Elliott, chastain, Bush, Baba and Syndric, would all wreck and then the caution would come out and your leader, who was Michael McDowell, fourteen years in the Cup series, would get his first career win in the Daytona five hundred. Oh my God, I hated the race, but the anti climax of that finish was insane. Hamlin led ninety eight of two hundred laughs. Tend up getting screwed by Michael McDowell. Is just this is how was this the one good thing about the races? That? Yeah, I think everyone dominates every I feel like everyone just like loves eat. We love wheny one and like the whole entire day today of like him, like getting everything from Daytona five hundred and just seeing how like humble. Yeah, yeah, I mean he's ever so hard, he's worked so hard and like the team and like Michael Himself, like they won the five hundred, which is which is crazy. It's just it's it's really heartwarming and it's good to know that. You just know he will cherish that moment forever. Like, I mean I'm not saying no, his life, he's going on that moment. No, he's going to have the title Daysona five hundred champion attached yeah name. Yeah, it's kind of like now. It's kind of like how trevor being like he did nothing the rest of his career, but he's going to have the title of Daytona champion Yaxt to his name. Like. I'm not saying Danny Hamlin doesn't care about winning a five hundred, but seeing an underfunded team and a driver who's never won a race in the cup series when the Daytona five hundred, I mean how can you just not smile unless you're Danny Hammond Fan, like I was just it was Danny was sweeted. Danny was like this was a whole flu like he you're on the sands, are in top ten, on tap, top ten the whole race, no matter if there was a big reckon for lap fourteen. He ran a top ten the whole right, would didn't he see? Didn't twelve or something like that? Yeah, he didn't have yeah, he wasn't bad any of the weekend. I'm pretty sure he's even running up front and duel at he that he wasn't. so he started seventeen. That's wood, but yeah, he was. He was faxed. Oh, wes andy seven in Stage two. So yeah, he know he wasn't. He wasn't just hanging around. No, he was. He wasn't riding in the back. He was literally going...

...for the win and it's just awesome to see. It was. I loved it. I'm just happy that it wasn't like a big name. Honestly, like yeah, thing, because you see the big even if yeah, just like all right. For me personally, if it was like even if true x wanted, I would be happy, obviously, but I think I'm more happy now that Michael McDowell won it, because what was the last time we had an upset winner actually win a race? I was deserving, like you can't really consider William Byron, which it would have been cold cost I was sitting. That wasn't even upset. Yeah, Byron wasn't an upset cold car, except, but that wasn't even him like being there. He was just right place, right time. CUSTER also unfair topped on the whole race, but he wasn't on him. Yeah, he wasn't a race winning car. Well, like this is one of the most I don't know how to expand it, none of the most heartwarming races in heartwarming winners. Was Two thousand and eleven, like the entire season. I was yaking. I was actually thinking Daga thirteen. I was thinking of an almondinger one mm oh, the Markins Glenn and for Watkins Gun. Yeah, I was thinking of that because, like he, he went through a lot to finally get to like that point to win. You know, he started with a red bull who, like was like missing races, left them right the beginning of Toyota, and then he went to Pensky and was suspended midseason, and then he's with the teams finch, and then you finally got with Jtg and he pulled it off and yeah, that was that was probably the last true upset winner. Was A J almond and I would say personally, but like everyone knew there that he was good at road. Course was by that. Yeah, like he was close money times. I got to say the last one hundred percent true. UPS that winner would be Trevor Bain Austin. Awesome. Dylan is first one coach. Oh well, that was fuel mileage. All right. Yeah, it feels more special if you're running up front almost the whole race, trump other than just fast as car the entire five hundred like week. So yeah, yeah, let's Talk Abouim all. Paul and ARD winning. I was. He wasn't. He was a front all race, but like I yeah, it rung and winning us like, oh, didn't churs. They that? Yeah, I mentioned that. Yeah, that's for they were. Well, look from row. Cars are usually good at the play races. Oh yeah, but that that was still really, really cool. So yeah, that was that was him and bring together and just like all right, we're gonna go upset. Yeah, and they and they just passed. They passed Edwards, Kansas, Johnson, everyone. They're like, Oh, you guys are going to battle, we're just going to YEP. So our notable finishes. Michael McDowell get the win. I think most of us can gry. That was pretty cool. Defending series Champ Chase Elliott second place. Not Bad. Austin Dylan, who had an insanely good speed weeks, for third. He's actually leading the points without the playoffs and he's leading the points. Yeah, I want to add that, like Austin delan's. Finally, I think he's finally hit his prime, and his primes like it's not going to be. Yeah, he's at that point where, like, I think he'll be like rap contending for way of a, yeah, and wins maybe round of a. If you had Kevin Harvard, that'll say a lot about RCR. Yeah, Kevin Harbic. Fourth, okay, Hammon, fifth, pretty six out of racist. Win at Ross chatains seven. Yeah, that's pretty chasting. That's right. I feel like Ross stupid. Yeah, yeah, you did. Yeah, I thought the same honestly, but like Ross is car was like off, like I feel like all his speed beaks. He didn't, he did. It was yet he didn't have me. Well, same with you. The word of Kurt really didn't have the speed either. All right, he directs, you know, like before getting never get back tools and pool qualifying. Oh yeah, he didn't really exist this even in the clash. I didn't see him. Shots both spire motor sports cars, two of them cry join fat w Bro Kyle Larson in his return. First off, unrespecting, very respecting. Yeah, he ran well, usually, usually kind of like his like mediocre plate tracks so Britain, even though he was in the wreck. Austin cyndric finishing fifteen. Yeah, you watch over Christopher Bell, I mean man, led the second most laps of the whole...

...entire race. Ran Up Front pretty much the whole race, even when he got damage and had a penalty, I believe. I'm pretty sure he had a penalty, he still managed to get sixteen. So I'm telling you, watch out him. He's a sleeper championship condender man, I'm telling you. And the notable finishers who would wreck. Wait, wait, you're skipping over. You're skipping over the rick rare racing cars. Getting a top twenty five, which is good for though. They didn't cry. Yes, they did. Where twenty, twenty, June, guys, that's first BABBA, seventeen. But breckons, Josh, but Lake, you got twenty four. B J McLeod in that team's first race. Twenty three. Yeah, respectable. I doubt. I like bj clown more than the other like backmarker cars, because he knows to just get the hell out of the way. Yeah, he knows. He knows what he has in his car. Two were the other guys don't do that at all. Yeah, true, x Byron Reddick Ran, like you can flash down pretty much already. They didn't see, you know, Byron had or not. Byers Reddick still finished. Only twelve laps down with that in that notable days. Ryan Blaney involved in that first big rock. That's pretty disappointing. Busher, Alfredo, the Benedetto bone and no not. I'm Oh, sores, I was pretty going to hate to see what you're gonna I want it our is he worts wars was that one was sad, dude, sores, this car was so fast, Bro, yeah, Dad, that is really fast car. I feel so bad. David Reagan and his comeback with data. So we're good to know. Nothing's changed. Ryan new remember we got fourth into the last year's Day ton of Jones. I was so long in for him to finish. I was so confident to and I had him. I literally had him in our fantasy. Frank. Oh, that we still have to do. Are we didn't have to boarding the recording. Okay, let's go yeah, that is that's going to that's going to become a segment. I feel like, okay, what should we call we have to make a name for it. Can we talk about how hard that Ar Mold Paint scheme movie? Do we want to talk about the whole broadcasting for Clinn Boyer, Gordon? Okay, joys, whole boyors, wait, these wait points to five points were quick. Okay, points. Austin Dale Needs Denny him by six points. After winning the duel and having a top five, then denny him was six foots behind Kevin Harvard, eight players behind chase. All have the runner up tempo in kind. Slow down, make it down. Points behind this. I don't know why you're talking about that, that those points don't matter. Playoff standing, the matter, I mean, doesn't really change. Well, I mean, I mean how just class? Michael McDowell has made the playoffs. Boys, that's literally the only downside his whole thing. I haven't one of them mentioned Rd my whole playoff racket. It just went down the drain. Everyone's to literally thought that, like mccalve all guys, he has taken a playoff spot. I'm not hating on him, I'm hating on the sister. He's taking a player to player coster. Who Else? William Byron could be potentially cool. I don't know how he's gonna run ball just a day. Wars are Jones, Benedetto airs on stool? Chase BRISCO really any of those guys? Yeah, conversations so high that this one position is really gonna like kill a lot. Broth is real screws. YEA season. It's gonna screw like I'm telling you. Okay, like for drivers, even though it's one position. Clip Boyer, Climb Boyars the saving grace to Fox. That man single handedly is going to keep Fox being a broadcaster. If Nascar man was. He was in top of his game. Like the clash was a little bit messy, like I could tell he messed up something, but first, first time in the booth in like full time, pretty good. I mean I can't hope play and practice to night before. Yeah, and he was a handy. Jeff Gordon Mash really well. That's what Jaf would boyarsing Clint Boyer Save Jeff Gordon Because Gordon has a boyal personality. Clint boy brings out the good commentator in Jeff Gordon. Yeah, and like overall, that booth is one of the best booths I've seen in quite a long time. Like I like NBC better. I think they had better coverage and I think I might like them still a little bit better than Boyer and Gordon, but lot to wait see the how it goes on with for in them. But honestly, it was pretty good, like it was, even though it was a terrible five hundred race. It was pretty good to lot to listen to the commentators. Honestly.

The only time I wish they weren't giving so much input was right after we came back from the Red Flag, when all the crews were thrashing on the cars. I wish they would have just let them like, just recorded the pickers just doing their thing and just watching and not really, you know, trying to give her a less on it. Yeah, as Hay thing that they I'll sell you that thing they did in the class or was like boyer is m you remember that? I don't even know. They didn't bring it. Yeah, I remember that thing. That what's now fantasy fancy. We're Gonnnna see me. We will be calling so segment as a refresher for how we do fantasy it's not like the normal pick five drivers each week. So we put down the top twenty five, I think, or top twenty most impetitive. Yeah, so most competitive teams of in the Cup series right now in our opinion. I mean I think it's pretty easy to pick out and we spin a wheel and each of us hits five drivers and for next five weeks we have to pick one driver we think will do the best for that specific track in our lineup and pretty much sure it does the best, gets Wednesday week and gets the most points. Pretty much every five weeks we spend a wheel again and more drivers. You cannot get the same guy twice until you've gone through all twenty five drivers that we have listed. That is the big key factor. So so now k dras apprently leads. It goes basically, since there's a four of us, me, Chris try and nick, who's not here right now, it goes Chris is leading as four points. Troy, I believe it's second, Yep, has three points, nick has two points, and then I was so confident about Jones for firm to finish thirty nine and get one point from me. So I'm the only one who wasn't a part of that lap fourteen reck. Your driver ended up still wrecking song, he still ended up breaking, but he wasn't good. You Pick Ust. I had BUBBA. Yeah, we all had. All of our drivers were the first like fourteen. Laughter. Right, we had like Boben Jones and butcher trod. I lined up socks. Okay, this I'm getting like the mediocre drivers out of way. You about harbic and Kurt and and Hardy? Yeah, all right, sorry. Already know who I have. You guys already know who I have. Yeah, I don't even know a point to tell everyone. Won't you tell her from Kaden who you talk at? Well, I mean I have good I have on the table. I Have Hamon that I can use, I have Lugano, I have Bubba and I have true X. I think this is pretty safe to say. It's kind of a toss up between Hamm and a true I think Hammon's going to have speed on Miami, so I'm going to take true x here for Dayton. Rogeta piece were you have to think strategy with this. whate we're doing it. This is yeah, this is why I was contemplating of I originally had Hamlin for Dayton road course, but then I thought Hamlin was way better than anyone at homestead last year and true x didn't run. Well. We'll Goana. I don't know by am if you had. Yeah, same with BUBBA. BUBBA wasn't worse equipment, but still I don't know how he's going to run. So I mean you had a kind of stratagize. The next couple weeks are Miami. We Have Day Tona road course next week, MIAMI, Vegas and Phoenix and Phoenix. Yeah, so Phoenix. I mean I kind of gotta go to Lgano, but then it's kind of a toss up. Do it take Bubba for the road course or do I take on for Vegas? So I'm going to go tricks for road course. That's what I'm going with. That's a that's a good move. I think that's a safe move on my life. He's going to Dina. Well, my Latom is pretty trash becauseides Harvik Kurt, but the it's a ton of road course in of them are really reliable. There you gotta see you have. Oh, so I have Kurt Um, Harvk chastain already's Busher and I've Austin Dylan. So I'm going to pick chas staying for this week because heart, because Dylan has never had a top fifteen in a road course and its whole entire couple career. So that's a red flag there. HARVEC has struggled a lot in the day tone of road course. And Kur he overshot. I think you overshot turn one twice something. That was that only one? Yeah, you saw one get the multiple time. So once. So he stole overshot...

...it and he was kind like mid dubb back into pack. So and chessting isn't that bad of road course versor but like, I don't really see him being amazing at any other future races and as bitter jazz, my line for the future over races. Basically, what choice trying to say is he had to pick the best of the worst. Yeah, that's that's about it. Honestly, he just had to go with the safest pick. Who did who didn't nick go with so that I can't even say no, you're gonna will have to message him. Yeah, he said pusher. Sure, okay, interesting, okay, get this. Who Does he have and why did he go with Busher? He has did because Lowski and Suarez. Oh, he used Bowman. You could have used by warrior spars. We don't know the actual speed of that car, though, since it was only like Daytona. That is true. Yeah, yeah, it more feel like it's too yeah, I feel like it's too much of a risk. Well, I feel like with Justin marks being part of like the leaders of the team, and he was pretty good at road course racing, given his bang not on a set up a road course bar. Yeah, I mean even Forre is reason pretty as you can hear the what was it called? Mexico series? Yeah, it's kind of like peak any. It's peak any freeze now or something like that. Yeah, so swears was doing a lot of road course racing there because they did a lot of that stores. Swarz is actually like pretty good. He was like above average ummer courses, when even with Games is something. Yeah, he was with him. I want to take swors, but I think I'm going to play it safe and go with Brisco because it is a road course. It's not bad. That what I want to run a solid I want to run BRISCO one of the ovals, but I feel like I know where I'm going to take sures you're gonna take Swarz at Phoenix new yeah, that's obvious choice at that point because I have Jones and Newman outside of that. For Vegas and Oh, you got a pretty bad line up to I'm only one with us. Stack. I gotta stack line up, not thinking about it. It's gonna come down to like Miami, I'm gonna have like Anthony Alfredo Rock, a star thing we are using. You could end up the House to bill in a rock chatting. Wasn't it? Ain't that bad, Bro. I mean, I know he's not mad, but I'm talking about like lower not what drivers? The lower yeah, drivers, yeah, not championship winning car. Feelings harder to pick when you have bigger drivers because once you have like bigger named drivers, like if you have Harvard Hamlin, because Lasky on the same bracket. We're on the same like five years fan, we set. You are set, yes, but then you can use them for so long. Yeah, and it's also hard like if you're like choosing like a randach out, like New Hampshire, like Harve's always good New Hampshire. Hands always going to new airshire because I'll ste always get a new answer. So it's like, yes, having big name drivers is good, but do you want all them at the same time? Yeah, that's well, you could look ahead about like what's coming up pretty much a planet advance. That's what I did. I only have mine planing out. I don't have mine Sou I said as a is that pretty much wrap it up, even to the daytone. Over course, there's not or anything after they told me that's come out. Is there? No, can think of anything. or The pastic we completely ditched Arca race, but it was kind of bad. We melt. I decide when you were any decide you were gonna do it, because I really laugh. Yeah, I was looking for extrinity and I clicked darker our. I'm like, Oh, cory rain or race. Yeah, then I was just like we're gonna skip the ARC because, yeah, pretty much the only like a big thing is that gracie trotter. She pretty much like not on purpose, but it's Bilience, kind of like spawn and experience. He kind of kills. She's kind of disappointing and and anti Gibbs trashing to Arca supers. Oh my God, yes, that's the one. I think we can watching about the ARCO Rays Tye Gibbs. Absolutely what? Oh, I'm an ARCA and their package for the super. What did he say? I didn't. I didn't watch it. He was what did he say? He pretty much said that like it, you can't pass with it and like you can't really get runs with it and that he'll go on iracingly. Its Tomes, it's better and Iris and that did a better job than Arca. Yeah, all wrong. Should be really he's not working better than the actual thing. Like, I'm just gonna First Super Scow Ray Star. Um. Yeah, I think that about I think that...
