Episode 3 A New Voice and a Looser Setting

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

*Originally aired August 11, 2020* Here we breakdown this past weekend in NASCAR along with what we’re looking forward to next week with the Daytona RC and how it’s more of just a fan appeal race than worrying about points.

Welcome to the third episode of anASCAR HAS PO PODCAST YEA Chris. We got troy, Kenny and Mike. Those two arewell Kenny's, not new, but you know like is new. Today we're going to behere talking about an exciting weekend: Ind, both L Cart Lake and the IrishShales of Michigan posted historical double header weekend for the cubsteries that had one manufacture, one and mostly one driver, just dominatethe weekend. Let's get into the topic, so the weekend, yeah t sure was an exciting and actionpackd weekend so yeah they definitely had a lot of. I think Michigan was a lot better thisyear than it has been the past couple of years. Yeah it definitely theseraces, definitely up last year or whatever we had last year in theseraces overall I'd say Bo is also better. Last year, Meicawas PROO deinitely ndit interesting yeah all right. So we started the week off last week thatIvine family racing was sold despire. It looks like I don'tknow if it's official yet but there's n't tweets about it and I'mpretty sure that they brought it. They bought witonfamily racing and pretty much everything that goes with it, exceptlike the the gibs, a lines and stuff like that. Yeah, that's a lot of Ati heard to the I'm pretty sure the charter salewas official and that way also theyre building that we they can okrate theirfacilities and such Yeah Ka e. They sold everything, but the callsTocarlos go back to jgr yeah and then we had. We saw this coming from like two yearsago, once bell started just kicking: Butt, an exfinity and everyone, butbell its official to the twenty car for two thousand and twenty one. He gets ahundred percent give us equipment and nothing less yeah it'll be great to see for him, Imean weal, we alsothis coming there's. There was no surprise with it as soonas they announced that Jones wasn't coming back to the twenty.We all knew right away. That bell was definitely taken over that twenty Guar Yeah Oles leaves with the question,there's a big there's, a Wud question up or what Jones go, because there's nolike obvious choice for a like owner,they'll, be like oh they'll, definitely bring hem on it's all like differentmanufactures, completely different teams that have a big chance right now to pick upa really solid driver. That could definitely win a lot of races, andmaybe you cantend for something more than just the playoffs and the youscoming. You Know Tat Be Nice Mike Henny. Where do you think Jones causin couldend up going? IMI'd say the obvious is on the twoobvious choices are definitely Tookan, Assy and and definitely hundred, but now thatI'm thinking about it, I cant think of their team. But thirty four is not a strong driver, butI think if they were to put John Hunter and Ar Jone together, I think theycould be starting something there. That is true at Oy pick yeah people are forgettingthat Boyer has in made a new contract as Thorhos for thefollowing season. So this fourteen is kind of like an open ride right nowthat we could see Jones at there's a possibility if they don't want to rushBrusco or they don't want to resend Boyer Joes can also be there. There's a lotof sponsorship. There hjes no reason yeah. Why Ou Mone Wer, you think honestly think he's going to take overthe forty three. I think bub was Goin. No leave Richard Tadyan head over toChipkan Assy Yeah. It's definitely if he goes to howdefinitely Upgrad the team and bit he probably being newsponsors andeverything so yeah. I definitely make this team gobean hown to see what happens. Yeah. Definitely interesting. Yeah. I think, there's a Goong Im! You lookat the hit go on. I think ther is a...

...good chance to see jons ether, theforty three or the forty eight, because handrefick's just about giving up andtrying to get a veteran driver. At this point I mean there's no one reallyavailable yeah going out and getting the only problem. I see with him goingto the forty three would be Lao sponsorship, because he really only haswhat races or reace, whichever that is yeah and yeah. All the rest are basically givesponsorships. That's going to stay at Thet Twenty car yeah. We don't know ifany sponsorships will leave if bubble leaves on the team, because, let's be real like most of thesponsors, are there, because one is the forty three and two it's but wallace.He gets a lot of like media Ranemet all times so when he leaves Ho definitely be a goodboss on sponsorship for rich, pretty more sports yeah. That can be a negative for themgoing forward. I mean they're on the right track right now, especially with what bubba mentioned before. Was itbefore Sunday's race, or was it aer now as before before yeah? So that could be the main thing to quot from that was hesaid this new big deal that could be a thing could send us over the top, whichI found to be really interesting and we still haven't heard. Yet what exactlythat is? Yeah certainly will be interesting. Ocase the week started off trucks atMichigan. That was one interesting race. It started out great racing, Waas grarious in thewhole etide time, but there was caust an afh ter caution at the caution, theend goyskep crashing. He had big ones, Sauder crash from thelead. She was trying to get the lead trying to get himself ato the playoffsand he spun and dug him a deeper hole now into playoffs. It's over a hundredpoints out now, which is which is really big. It's really surprising yeah, I a I think. Te trucks have honestlyproduced some of the best racing at Michigan over the past couple of years.Hands down. I mean yes, it's a colce ronrfess and that's the stuff everyonelikes to see. As a you know, common fan perspective, but no it's really beengreat to watch the trucks really kind of get that fan appeal, especially ascertain tracks. When you see the other series go to yeah, I'm always pumped for trucks inMichigan. I remember our last season when it was the regulasiason cutoff. Itwas really good racing 's. A lot of lead changes in the end. I've alwaysloved it. Ind oays greeit never fails to entertain yeah. What id you guys think athout truckrace mic, an Kenny. I I didn't get to see th on, but fom.What I taug is really fun ways to watch like. So I know that ended pretty late,but I unfortunately had to go to a hockey game right towards the end of the RACEO. Imissed the finish. Yeah went later than a lot of people thought it would so it's understandable. I watched thom on my phone when I wasoer. My friends still watched it yeah. I was watching on my phone on mygt tripup to New Hampshire yeah. I bet everyone was like. When was a sneakandrace end, EB yeah ended in a lot of stuff infinger. He dominated theracists ut front, all Ras and IM, spinning himself off of Johnners,bumper and the en and killing is chances o win, which was crazy. Thatascard e out through the caution there kind of understandable, though eventhouh attracted spin, there's no damage any that they kept going. But Yeah we had a battle of the WORKIES,I think they're, both rookies battle, the verkies in the end, both youngstars, trying to get their first truck win andseen Smith on the final lap got by Christian Ecus. It was great to see Zan Swetman.Honestly GMS is probably my favorite team as a whole in the truck series,just because, like they all got guys on there team that you would want to rooffor over certain other teams, but it was really good to see them when Ithink you bring up that no caution at the end, it was getting really close tothe sun just not being there. It was basicallyturning into like the Indi Up. GRAC o race and yeah, like the Sun, was justgoing away, so I might have been the reason why theyended it. I mean you see, NASCAR be inconsistent with cautions at the endand that also might have been a...

AA factor of the TV project, broadcastkind of being, like all right need to wrap this up. Ao. You know how tightaskor really tries to be with a proadcasting companies, so that might have meen reason. I thought it was a great race, sooveraltough, definitely Mike What d you think. I thought it was really goodracing. A lot of different things. Lot. A lot of surprises, especially with theleader getting wrecked multiple times, is goo close racing. I do agree with NASCAR for not throwingthe caution at the end. Let them race it out. There was nobody that was inharm's way and they were cutting it really tightand Thi. Don't think it have been able to get another DREAN wiy checerd in tobe honest if they would have called a caution, s cutting to close there yeah and then, after that, we had the next day the expinity series, no no yeah. It was to Nice Day, yeahyeahit's next day, O is that like yeah, the expeney series went up to oCart Lake and race at Road America yeah, it sure was crazy. We made it like fivelaghs and then there is rain and then there's lightning and then there as anhour and a half of Olag which right when they're aboutto right when they were gatting the cars w ready to go again like man sturkagain yeah, that was it got. I got annoying and born andeverything, but got back racing and it Thi not disappoint Rosin in the lane, those rain Tiers, ohMa, just watchi NASCAR race in the rain. What a what a site to see like we don'tget to see that that often so when it does happen at the Roan courses, it's amazing Ho Hey. We all know that on the roadcourse, this weekend, good thanp for rain there yeah thet's supposed to beRainif Teytoona this weekend, like what do you play? Hopplan top,some one of them? I didn't really watch too much of it. I seen the end of it.It looks pretty interesting I watched from when all guy ererecked but um, Ithink Alman Dinger really did have the car to be, and he just couldn't executein time. I don't know the all. The cautionnd stuff like that thatcame out kind of killed, amningers rhythm. He was one of the fastest.Definitely they didn't have time enough time to be able to go through the fieldand be able to like cast later like heneeded. He needd a lot more time than he got, especially with the cautionsand the amount of strategy that everyone had. We saw like Josh Blickyand Alex Lebay, leading laps and batting for the leadour front. It kindof kind of it slow them up it messed up his day and that let Um Auson Syndro just dominite. He provesagain how amazing of the road course rigger Raser,that guy is womeno. Whenever we go to the roadcourse, the nxtenty series, you always got to expect Allen, Dinger and Sindricto be out there, because those guys just know how to run road courses. Imean there's a one knows you: can you can throw BRISCO in there? Sometimesobvously peso with indeed, but that was due to rough racing. But besides those tipe three it'd be asurprise to see someone else, maybe all guyer if he gets the reat strategy. Besides that, you got to expect thosethree to the OK yeah: they the difference they have, they could run itsmooth, they cand run fast, but it's a rare to see, make a mistake and whenthey make a mistake, got a pallance on them and sometimesthe competitors miss that, like Brusco, I'm capitalized on that, but, like idnot see Sime Meau, this single mistake all race, Dude Dude had the strategy down becausehe was was. He was one of the first guys Wen. He was the first one thatsaid onpome before they pitted that he was going to put intermediate time andit was or it was pretty good to see that yeah yeah. He had the experience over thefield most of the field at least yeah. Then we had back to Michigan later in theday for the first race there for the couple,searis and et's just be real, perfect, just bu, how many the yeah, you know, uch theGuy It's two thousand and twenty that's Carwish Nan, Thotwo thousand and twentyand Harvick dominated didn't like slip...

...up rer that he slipped up. Gay Calboffcasloski Cazoki almost gotthat Michigan Win Close Soagain, the guy. I got got to wait another year butharvvr again and that really nice looking Bush apple scheme, you won. It was an overtime finish. I crashes,Wel Yeah Good. At my crashes. It was definitely Tenninin Hein, especiallyfrom Michigan, and what the package has yeah. What di you guys think of thefirst race, the put they definitely produce some phenomenal restarts,including that last Morne I thought blane was going to give him a run. I heneeded another lap. I think he could have got up there. He had a reallyShong car. Also truex had a really good restart at the end. Definitely was a lot better than inyears past for sure I liked what they had it with the PJ one in in the turns. It definitely gavemore options instead of just running it, as a bottom feeder definitely would like to see Michiganon the trick or on the schedule twice. Agai next year was really good in myopinion. Besides Harvard leading the Horis but Gal at Arbeut, Michigansharget Michigan,Tuti, Woula, N stopable, yeah Ess. For Him, O yeah, we go from HARVICD, I'm moecomplete opposite what happened that John an Arnima check in that race? Well, one time te just got a completelyspun. I know that, like someone just came up and just cleaned them out andthen the other two times what has happened, what happened andstarted off so good after we came back and the PAS yeah he's heing from hishand, one of those summer slumps that we see drivers have boman'sexperiencing it yeah a couple. A couple drivers aregoing through it, it's hurting them and points Bush is going through. It he'she's slowly covering, but en he was hitting it before between biking Pocono and New Hampshire. Youwas at a wittl moment, and hopefully the season goes up for him Jenny. What did you think of the thefirst Tres Itis? Pretty good? Definitely the shoes come made. It alot more interesting, because different drivers got to the front when they wererose back. If they were to run it and they actually were able to get the leadoff of it like Chase Elli on that onrestart, where he started on theinside and moved up probabl, what was it like, sixpositions or something likethat? Yeah Fo, going from Fan, l on the inside Yeah Ye got thes shun tol lead. It was just e, really interesting, thethe jusgone, really let the drivers really kind of take control.I was listening to the scanner when I was at work, and I remember one of them there, 's oneguy that I couldn't talk. I osis on the whollscanners channel and you just hear the spoter go one two three six eight guysto the outside go inside, so it was tha great way to see the spotteris and drivers really connect more than the normally would so yeah that sheus come really. I liked ita lot at it made for some really good strategyand it's a smart move. It helped out bubble wallce a lot. We saw him on oneof the last tree starts he got in did in insidelane. He was like the secondor thrird of one in thenside lane, and he got a run. He went for in the middle,didn't work out with the package he went for, and the choesecone reallyshows that, like I gives her another opportunity to read, the nicesy yeah definitely stops the drck evers from being like.Oh every start in this ling. You know I mess it up or whatever, and it's likewell. No Cano Tane Plame for yourselvs thatyeahthe one tar chooses it yeah. You used to curt a lot of a lot of Javisraces, starting en that way and Lik they couldn't help it. They couldn'tlike Dou can help starting on the inside thatr point, but now they can,they have the option and they can improve their position easily. Yeah, it's great to see that I honestlylike it. I I wasn't. I wasn't sure what to expect with when it was originallyused it at Bristol, but then, when they said they're using it for this weekendand any checks e a super speedrights...

...and road courses, it, it definitelygave for some eciting restarts and see guys that Maye normally want to be upthere. All of a sudden, oh they're, starting like seventh on the restart orsomething like that, and you just see him try to make moves and, like yousaid with Bubbla, I mean what shot up to forth and then drop back immediatelyin the turn because of the package yeah. So then, so you know harverd dominates race. One We hindedday to we got the ARCAS series running at noon and Bren homes looks like hewas on his way to another win until that second race break and yeah yeahit deminitely heard Hem and thenbrily hersust came in there Riley ERPs winning ovr Ras. I finally got on. I took like fifty onestar. Rtan two wins this that's top of US stuff, that's realthe hurps, but yeah isdefinitely interesting to watch and it was. It was a solidrace for Arka Arcrusm like been too good. Pus is all right seems like it went by really quick, yeah blue with it. So you know move on from theinexperience drivers to all of a sudden, the top poise yeah. So we start out before the race evenstarts. Eleven dravers go to the back between adjustments, backup cars andthey're placing a lot of stuff. It was a lit. I change up the order, thestarting order, the invert and stuff like that big time, and it definitely gave way to a lot of guys on the PLABubwul get points. BUYRAND got a lot of points in the first tage Jones moved up.Quick and boyer was on Stopbole the first tage,because you had to clean air. He was Goneto, Yeahs, not see him get points he hasn'treally has been doing that. Well, lately, no, it was definitely nice to see himget some points because he's been marking quite a bit lately because Idon't know, for whatever reason he's just not being able to finish racist,so itwas really nice to see him get the sage win and all that and then we sawthe penedetto get points he needed, those obviously Yousai with Byrun andJones and was Jimmy Tun toace. Eleven at Peonhe's eleven. He fell back when she got past the second. He just went straightto the back and you struggled ter get the the points he really needed in that yeah. It was definitely good to see,for you know some of the drivers for sure and yeah that started with elevenguys going to the back. I think it end did it end up being thirteen total thatfilled wercause, two faile inspection or something like that yeah. I think I ti that washing there'sa lot of drivers in the end. It definitely shook up what was the firststage and helped a lot of drivers heard a few drivers and points yeah, but yeah. It's definitelyinteresting to watch. Watch guys like Hislaski Harvic Bushtrix, move through the pack with Em Yeah, then it moved too quick becauseit a package, but it was. It was neat to watch guys that you don't normoseeAr Front batling for top points, because every point means a lot more tothem than what third men, the fourth wewerly Bcaus Alasky and stuff likethat. So it's really nice yeah, I mean, and obviously it's onlyfor the first tage, because by the time the stayended, all the guys, are rightthere ready to go. That normally would be upfront so time second stage gotWalland. They wiggled their way up to the front andwe're like Harr so back to nomal and yeah hard an do front. Surprise, yeah, Eah Eve got big help by his crew. Afterthat, first stage six positions yeah, he had a phenomenal stuff thatwas wild to see they really jumped on the competitorshere yeah and then, with that downate stage to and heard like allright, yeah, not normal yeah stage to a was AU,boring stage the package once you get like strung out in a lot of green flag.It's not much tratesgy, it gets boring. I was contemplating taking an AP, I'mnot in o. Why I staped up and we got we had to stagethree and Amarola and his team have amiscommunication yeah. I want they were like hot dog andI guess, like hot dog meant Pitt, but...

...in Eric's car and you stay out yeah. Idon't know what happened to Thats dos beard. It's where you see that but yeah thats definitely the mix en ougsheets for sure, but that that hurt him a lot. But then, at the end, Yeah Thaheart him lot. It hurt him a lot be in the beginning. But then, once we had a big turning point in therace, Kaslovski wrecked out, blame find for the lead.Definitely change a lot in the race yeah being the Pensky fan that I amthat Wen. A that one hurt to see especially beingfrom Michigan to Hopan brand would finally get Wen ot Michigan and he lookes, like Yeu,had a legit shot, because those tim are the only ones so those to erly ones toreally contend with Harvick yeah before before they wrecked. We actually hadsome pretty good racing. It was. Nice is good race between Hamlin, Harvic,blany and Kaslaski. There they're mixing it up good a lot of closesfreacing. It's pretty good to see that helped that helped emeral and alot and that because Yehad he would have to pit laps later. Helpe thus finish. Even though did you get a Tel ten, I think get atop ten. You Find Id a Fincy conten, so you got up to six thirty, somethinglike that. YEAHI GIN NA fall back too far, yeah he. He ended up getting six so yeah thathelped him out a lot and there, as some good runs from guys.Surprisingly Jimmy and the Deve Finish in eleven yeah ended up twelve. So thatwas good for him because he's been slackind Imean that team as awhole husband, it's Lik, it's her a hers to see Davin the team is a wholehas been liket on two mile tracks, even though they dwell our auto club, Michigan and Hendric the last couple years tothey've kind of like they have worked to do definitely Butgo but yeah. There's a lot of work onthere and even with Jones te blue transmission. Somethinghappened in the end with Ao like a few laps to go. He finished like twentyseventh, which was like adding nowhere. Mc didn't cover it, but he fell backand that hurt him in point a lote because he had a top fivegoing and ifhe kept like the top five, then it would only been like eight points or like ten points by the cutoff to by Aon Yeah. So now, him and Johnson are Botdtied at w twenty six bag and tyler redic really struggled to gain anypoints to because you dropp back to thirty six back afer, only being whatfifteen entering we. He he strucg a lot at Michigan Hethereis, something wayoff for childeess and everything you struggle. He struggled a lot and then aTI grat entire weekend shoot not even children a chevias whole.I mean sure they finished eight through twelve, but that was their only dalad runs. I din't even notice. MAKENSAV finished topit n. He got fifteen like yeah, it's tough yeah for is definitely theya had theentire weekend except trucks. I bet and Arka they a exinity, both cup races.They did all cover theyre on, stop bool yeah, I mean shoot and then, if starter didn't,basically, you know take himself out him an Anfinger, what it raced for thewind, so yeah, one WR, two dad moves total because anand finger pulled in band black Ford could have takein the weekend, exceptfor Arca, which that wouldhve been wile. That wouldhave ben that definitely would have been uting crazy stuff for just sweptevery sone SAS daid a lot of times, Harvic one it was. It was a prettyintense finish for Michigan Musing Mers harberk. Was There Wen hamwonwas there,a Harvick made a couple. F, mistakes had to get out of the gas a coupletimes: Yeah Yeah. I think that showed the onedownside of the package show because denny was underastickin behind him forwhat the final nine laps yeah and he could in an pack, the Mos Ye could dowas get up to his bumper, like not even don't like that. Bubble effect waskicking in for the package and you just...

...like come on right. I mean denny had achance to pass him coming out of to with what two to go and they both hadto check out yeah. They both had to check up carvick would hav deaf, I meanHam. Word definitely had him of if they won't, both thidn have to check upthere, yeah they rur n e second, the entire time, and if Harvard just likekept running the outside and every turn, I bet he would have held them offeasier, but for some reason he kep going low, an someterms, Hanen high andwe just close an corner exisite, especially out of four Oh yeah,especially on the final lap. All of a sudden, it was what for tenths of the second between thetwo and next thing you know he's about to pass thim ot, the Stra yeah. Thatstripe was just a little bit further down the track. It would havebeen close. Yeah definitely provided for some excitementto see with harvick winning. He ties rusty,Bollas for Tenth Olo all time at fifty five wins D on's about behind Kyle Bush,one wind behind Kie Bush Woa thought that entering the year. I would neverhave thought that I thought when Bush passed Parvi Ana winslist thatBush is gone. There is no way hard was in a somehow catch back up and passthem back. No we're USILL jus going to stay behind them. The entire way upwhenever they end yeah thisis. Definitely interesting,he's two wins away from just like passing them, and Bush weff the passHem back again and ibe fight up the winslist. I think in the final whatwere now inthe final fourteen races of the season, Coprobay went a rase or two becausewe're heading to a lot of tracks that favorhim Yand, but with this year we're also headingto a lot of track that favorite harved. So it would definitely be interestingto see how that develops, what you guts think of Barkerace and the Second Michigan race. I Din good to see the arterace, butsecond myschine races, pretty good finish, is really fun to watch, so itsucked with the package not being agolpass. If Hamon should have gotten there like.I would love to see Hamlen that Le Kep to the quarter panel, because he chould have used the sidedraft and going down the Bastlortt backstretch, and it would an real,tough fight in the corner final corner, but can't really do anything about it. Yeah Mike Woat d, you think yeah. Thesecond race was going really well for me and fantasy, and then Brad decided to kill Blaney and yeah. Those were the two cars I thinkhad the that could have been Harva con Sonday but Um. It wasn't as good asSaturday was still good, but s wasn't as good as Saturday finish was awesome,though I think Hamlon could have got him if he had another lap or so yeah, that's Srut. He definitely had aLitera shot at. U itnly Butand, then with Harvicscman to healso becomes to the first Gito Win comprases, I'm Bak to back days sinceone thousand nine hundred and seventy one when the king himself did it. Sothat's pretty that's always good company to be in when your name ismentioned alongside his definitely that I must be likesomething pretty like big for Harvick he's in a class with him and petty yeah, that's a pretty big stuff. It washe hol weekend, definitely yeah and with the weekend going in Michigan renow ad the furge unknows of the daytonal road carters.Oh my God, everything is unknown. We have there. We have no practice. Wehave nothing to go off of it's going to be sendimen a turn on and just whateverhappens happens, and it's going to be crazy. I guaranteeyou, those boys are going to be spending a lot of time on I racing andthe simulators over this week. Well, probably they'll probably be like yesspot somewhere like sixty hours, O inw yeah. They got a get as much as theycan. I saw like chase CA, selladin interview, and he said that, like Iris,ing stole doesn't like give as much as to like what you actually need knowrunning on the track and they're like just in to turn one. He 's an over tobreak anythere. It's complete, unknown Yeah Canyo Mike. What do you think of theupcoming weekend, so many ir known, Owayo Scar, noys, definitely o be fe, O rain...

...rain. I raincoms the whole fields donefor oh there's going to be like three cars ont at Tho finish, and it's goingto be like the best Rod, Courseis Prodcorse, racesin a field just imagine rain to start the race toall eone. An any reason. If there's, if there'sany restart that continues to rain it's it's over forthe field e, so Badna any restart involvingtireware yeah. It's going to be it's going to be really crazy. THAT'SWHYGH! I'm not even worried about the twenty six point gap. That's in theplayoffs. It's not even my mind, because that's that's going to close upquickly in a matter of laps in the in the road course. Definitely out of Thea. The guys on that buble Ifeel like Byran needs to be really scared for Jimmy Jenen, Jimmy's, rapid track and owstimes granted. You know Itas in prootypes, but he's Randon enough timesto know. I feel, like he's, got to be worriedabout mcdowil too, because he's Randon as many times as Jimmy has and thenHEPBC Kyle you know. Finally, break is slonk and that'll unlase the demon that none of us wantto see. Yeah he's, probably one of thefavorites for the race, definitely of the God. I have like the mostexperience with the favorites but CAS most recent with a with the car. It's like similarto Cup Cock cars, the most summers you can get in Imsa that they run there Mike. What do you think about? What's coming up alot of questions tobe answered? We won't know anything till Sundaywhether how turn one goes, it's all going to bejust drive and learn for the drivers. That'sall it's going to be. I feel like it's Gon Na, be like asurvival of the fittest. Kind of like the duel, not the dual the class where it's just going to bethe last car left is going to be the winter. I don't think, there's gon nobe a lot of cars left to be honest, feel like there's, be a lot of rects a lot of spinouts and a lot ofquestions about the NUSHA cane to it should be interesting to see how that'sgoing to be and what could happen at the end. Yeah be comes. Do it o guys, Thouthat'll be interesting with that basically front stretch, cicane Owever,you want to classify it as based on its location. It Um it'll definitely helpwith the speed entering tern one, but the unknown of coming off a turn.Forwad, so itwill definitely be or will turn for in the oval. I shouldsay because that ends up being what turn twelve or thirteen on the O otersans.There are an of course I lost count. I can't remember that stuff, I'm not goodstuff, but I been in the beginning. I want experience drivers, especiallylike Bush Johnson Arvik, there's going to be a lot of like letting go, there'sgoing to be a lot of like sacrificing points like you've, either like raiselike a guy like Byron or something for Tenti points in the beginning, or wouldyou rather just like let it go and just chill out and justlearn the course and get used to it so by the time Youe at the end, if youmake it Ti tegain you're there and you're ready youconfident yourself, I think u ther'll definitely becompoming down to who can get the most use to the trade. I also depends onwhere you're, starting because with the new starting format towards what thirtyfivefifty fifteen, so I know you have it on your story. The breakdown ofwhere people are Goinna ext more than like resy starting so and Harvit, seems the most worriedabout it and he's Gonbe he's gonnagos. Ga He's gonna, get it all on the star.Whatever happens is going straight to him going straight toer. Hopefully he not a, hopefully he's notrunning a special scheme, so you know if I were them. I wuld like ir like like a replace an engine lastsecond and be like Oh Wer, Gon, to be in the back now going to the bag. I would honestly do that. If I was him,I would war, we would bring like a really bad engine to be like. Oh, thisengined sucks or whatever, and just like bring out the backup or whateverit is ist ust start in the bank and just be save n Al Ti V. Wor concern ifI were guys like Kasalawki Blane Boman, starting a little bit further back inwith a lot on nose and not a lot of...

...experience. BACTHERE could get realdicing yeah and can diifferent tempers is going to be a lot of tempers yeah people are not goingto be liking.Each other after isdefinitely, after, like I bet like the first stlapt Isin,to be a lot of stuff because, as are going to be, I bet like there's going to be a couplcars and Yeu pushed off into the grass or, like the pavement ad o turn one. The run offarea seenle a lot of guys going out there definitelyd. I haven't seen howmuch room thers going to be for run off here, because they come back outbasically right next to it almost so. I have no idea how much room they'regoing to have so that'll be interesting to see. I'm sure that there's got to bea lot, because these things do not hit the brakes like any yeah. You had to time it like before. You dothink they would want to break it and that's going to be a problem,especially in the first like three or four lapss, going to be big prombreaking when you break yeah that'll be go hea Kany, there's, probably going tobe a lot playing the game telephone going on, because Arca driver arprobably get give inpo to truck drivers serving GIV INPOTA excinity to pop.That's very true. Do Yeah it's definitely oucould, alwayslean on. Also, I was thinking like preerace, a lot of teammates and a bitlike. Even if wo're notn te same team like competitors will like build upsomething and like take notes. A lot of people better be going to Kyleand asking them questions and Kar can only give them so much since a stockcar is a lot heavier than GTLM. I see there's really only a couplepeople I see from the Arco race really going to be able to give advice. Anyoneabove it also depends. I mean, obviously, we want to have one of RaleyHervstrason in the Arcorace, so that cancels that out so whoever's runningthat Atean car probably be tigens. Is He rying this weekend? I don't think hecould run ovr e course. It's. I don't even know what HEU could be on use onknow. You don't have the Hartcountry list on your story. I was going tocheck that yeah, but no, I think the only one thatw'll beable to give like any valuable information. Ore, probably Deagon, andI feel like dollar, for whatever reason is going to be able to give in fo up to people degaing, especially, but becauseshe's already ran there. She ran the Michaan pilot challenge, H yeah, so she's already have experience thisyear with cars, probably even more similar to the any other of a stack cars. Yeah thescars are really they're, also really heavy, and they you got to like time itthere they're not like nearly as like the prototypes or gtlms ore. Heavy andstuff, like that Thatud be something similar like that. I bet. Without a doubt the Finneerstold be a lot better racing wise Youhav, a lot of guys that have experienced andexpinity that are running it's going to be a really it's going to be reallycool. YOUJUST got to trust, Tev Room behind them and yeah well, we'll see like four or fiveguys that are going to be AU front, the entire time. Maybe six we'll see youknow, BRISCO centric, Algiyer, onte, Dinger Gregson was really impressive atIndie, so I think he could. You know yeah do something at Daytona and then Alex Thebay hes with theanl Lik, guyslike earl, Bammer e's going to be running in it. Andy Lally's in it Alia there's a good amount of roadcourse. Fingers are going to be in this ansyndyou definitely will be pullingaway. Ven Wen, take experience, you won't be GOINGTO, be pulling away, no it'll be itbe. I mean you're goingto Daytona, so, regardless of which form or Daton are you running? You wantto win there, but especially when you're running Tho road course I meanthe road course is history and the speedwayss history hoesy just about equal in their own levels. So I would if you're going to Daytoe, you want towin there. It's like when they went to the expinity series, went to he roadcourse said: Indi every guy. That was up at the front, wanted to win there atthe end because of just the history of the place. So it would definitely beinteresting across all four series to see who really wants to put their nameon the list. First, so...

...yeah, AI winning picks. What do you think whodo you think is going no survive? Whatever is going to happen? Who Do woTHINKIS GOING TO WEAN? Is You know when Kenny Heea things inTha win? Well start ith to cowbush track yeh go. We got three ine for but yeah anywaystruck trucks. I think it could be isn't. Yeah looks hard. Probably. I think he could go good in that big fandy, obvious Sindric and then top. I think, Tile Bush,because the gkl one experience at Daytona like who do you think s who thinksgoing to get the job done in the three series for the trucks I'm gonna go Tagliani,just oon a swing tick. I think almanding Giril take care ofbusiness in the exfinity and in the cup I like Jimmy Johnson, Ithink he's going to surprise he's got Ta get away before you retires.I think this could be his chance. Sure you want to go. You want me to Ilg y O, my picks. I think the truckstruck race I think Alex Taglioni is like thefavorite he's, the one that stands out in that he's Ot the one of the bestequipment out there and he's probably one of the most experienced or theexperience to run. That course he's definitely up there exfinity I was, I always go with almondinger onroad, coursees and I'll continue that Aminar will win and cup. I don't know. I still. I still thinkHarvaris going to continue in it. I don't think thisis going to Slom down abit interesting for e trucks, I'll take tagglion. I toI just think: There's there's no way to go againsthim like how you going he's. INA came Cantruk El Yeah he's in a KABM truck. There's noway to go against that, especially with how much world course experience he, asin the expinity series, I'm going to go brisco he he ran the Mishan pilot challenge.NSYEAH he's not he's not that experience. I don't see him fallingback, much yeah, so I'll, take him there and then withcup there's. So many guys to that do somany unknown with cup. Honestly, I'm going to go in a limit SA srixsTREX is going to get the job done. It's definitely. It's definitelypossible anyone's pretty much possible. Jj Yaly can win for all know, and Iwas't betye surprised. I no JUS s. This is what you get not putting practice aqualifying and just run it. QINOLP is going to win the rids. No, Oh, my God,red running Gong, rip, Nascar, Instagram and twitter and everyone ohwat. You G deerwant lose their mind. No everyone would be so happy, though ivegone, one well yeah, I've Goton One, but Imagine Quin Hal for one. I think Nasca witer would cease toexist at that point. Oh my God. There's so many things that would just likekill. Maskor twitter on one day, they're going to happen. Ll, be there alaugh and it's going to be dewith that I think we've just about going over everything. Isthere anything yeah?
