ABOUT THIS EPISODE

*Originally aired July 21, 2020* The first episode of a new nascar podcast by a bunch of fans that hopefully the rest of the NASCAR fans tune in as we adapt over time!

All right, and the first episode of the NASCAR has hot spot podcast we're going to be breaking down the All star race texts. Might even mentioned a little bit of the indie car and the newly formed that s our rex. Let's get started. All Star Race. It wasn't money. Yeah, over, I could not go out. Yeah, no, they need to be a bit longer. They said that up. They rushed that. I don't think they should have had an all star race. I mean it was cool to see it at Bristol, but I should have had but it's not a bristol. They should have it's literally like a test at this point. It's not really look, I mean it was was. It was cool to see it at Bristol, but I think they had to be too short. Yeah. Yeah, there wasn't a round well, like one hundred and sixty laughs, or something that one hundred and forty. So it was way too short for Bristol. Yeah, yeah, it did not live up to the height. I thought that would have been a lot cooler. They would have gone to show the copsers coloring underglowing them, but like, yeah, they showed the pictures from like Vegas last year and it was like all over there underglad was very disappointing of doing that. Yeah, thoroughly. Just what did we think of the open itself? Is really only one incident that was worth the open. Open was decent, gotta says on my phone holding off the McDowell haters half the time. So I didn't enjoy the yeah, aspected open after the whole time thing. BUBBA McDowell. There is even a Wallas haters now. Most of it was BUBBA. Yeah, there's a lot of bubble haads. Well, yeah, because of everything going on, but that's a whole other topic that we don't have time for and shouldn't get into. Yeah, that's good idea to get into. The old star rays chase dominated past the first stage. I mean, yeah, the only reason really much to comin the first stage because he had like a yeah, yes, waited a pack quick. Yeah, and then, you know, they had to point out the point list out of you know, every race that they do and talk about how him and bill are the only ones to, yeah, not win an all star race like Charlotte. The interesting staff. The kind of said it too many times. Ryan Blainey when a late age one. So can't want to bustle only because he stayed out. Why? They like yeah, and it took like two tireds. They didn't take any it didn't ye, after the end of the first stage. They didn't put chase me to pass Bra a St Yeah, but no, that race was I mean wasn't a lot of going on. You gotta Give Justin Haley from credit, though. He didn't finish dead last year. Wasn't even like yeah, the car's time. That's true. He did. Yeah, what are you doing? Finished fourteen. Yeah, and he's but finished ahead of undamaged cars to I'm pretty sure. Yeah, yeah, he was also had like cancer or something like that. I mean he was also in a chip nasty car. So, because first time in a cup car ever, crystal at this. So no practice or anything, because he's only made me to speak my starts before and come right, he needs some last games. But you can't anything from the super speedways to the short track carry something, but like not a lots to think. Like he needs. He needs a little bit more time before he...

...could be in a cup car. Yeah, because he's more times a yeah, yeah, I could see him Moffett and AJ at college next year if chaste moves up. Yeah, Haley's until two thousand and twenty two. It's not because he hasn't really okay out. Now he's making he's been like a six as. It's just a I think, if anything, is only going to be two guys with the possibility of moving up next year, depending on what bread does the rest of the season, because, hmm, what depends practice. No, Brad well, even if it was a championship, feel like it's times that tens gear close. Yeah, they're growing up a whole. I mean here where you're seeing a similar situation as MAC kinds of with Roosh, with Ricky stenhouse race. Yeah, play out again, but yeah, it's true. Speaking of Cyndric can exffinity and all that fun texts. Yeah, yeah, thanks. Unity races as pretty good. It had some pretty good races, even racing, even though like Texas kind of as bad. Yeah, I think I feel like we saw a lot of like cinders, counting industry races, Kyle Book, yeah, coming through the field, figured out just to get dude. Yeah, yeah, I guess agree the wonder. Yeah, you did, but with that they gave them win to Syndric. So that was now senders on our roll with three in our row, we're going to row. Yeah, unders wonderful an every yeah, he deserved the Kentucky ones like. Oh yeah, the moment he got out front, he just drove away like it wasn't a contest. How about Christian necis in the truck rass holding off Boud blushed for a while. Oh, he did. He did a great job. When his experience in his town, stuff like that. He did a great show. He beat our Brandon Jones and billy wrecked out pokoto. Yeah, he's t go down. Yeah, tire go down there. So, yeah, those pokino races. That was ahead it. Yeah, but wow, indie wasn't that much better? Tired? No. Then Cup, praise. We saw bladey again dominate another mile and a half. Praise just for circumstances. I can ruin that for him. I think he's one. Only like one race, wally. He lit over a hundred laps of things. I don't even think that. I think. Did he lead? Well, you let a lot of Dago this here he late. Lady, you lead a hundred. He Let. You would led close to I saw a song twitter you on you. I love the most. Lasted two races year and it was how many you get? And was it Texas? I would say he's probably stile, the driver, if you like, laps lead the most laughs and nomen. Yeah, it's Lady's Let. A lot of laughs, most of the rails here. Yeah, just has bad luck and can't close. Matt really let's let's just base it. Ryan Bladey has this one win for the year. Yeah, maybe it doesn't win. Rest runs way too fast. He runs way too fast and now win another. Yeah, What luck will come to? I'll get yeah,...

...watched him just catch fire at the right time. That'd be scary him. Playoff. Yay, just the way for the playoffs at this point. Yeah, that dude puts a couple of races together and then everyone's going, Oh, where you come from, Bernie? I think he'll still make like the run of it again. I think he's easier to be yeah, about that big crash on the front straight away. I'm a Rolla just losing talent all of a sudden. Kurt again. Kurt's kind of cost yeah, girl, like they showed his on board and he didn't hold his lane in the middle between the two just like clipped a whole surprise. I'm surprised. Checks continued. Modified tried and he try just jummy. It was slow speed. Yeah, I don't have a goold come back to after I did about which one through the grass and I finished the which what he could Yass split didn't die. Yeah, wish it did like his lucky one time. There is cave for four. Yeah, for thank for forgotten. Joey got third. Yeah, already existed. Yeah, our CR winning. Yes, you can are here. Yeah, you guys R pr but that pays out of the few times. I mean, there's nothing. It was clean air and you won the race. But that's not really just posed why this package is awful. Yeah, awesome. Dylan is a top fifteen, top twelve car at the best we had. Then he wins to the race because of the package, because he has trucks. Even if someone got up behind read egg G were getting past it because Reddick was black. So if he e even when they got past them, they won't have enough time to get to Dylan. So you pretty much had that raise one. Whatever happened, URCR had a strategize so well. I anyway. That is smart. It was never very much at your children's making the calls to you from. Yeah, he didn't need to make the call. Yeah, he was in the command center for them. Let's take a look at that. HMM. Playoff bubble real interesting. All Byron was very entering. He's like nineteen ex lashback. Yeah, so we're everything with Jimmy Missing India. Now push them right on the edge. He's now got a run really strong the way are buck has got a really bing be there for next day races. I don't even a few terrible yers. Bowyers not safe by any means that I see about. He is more like consistent races. It isn't pointing like he's kind of heaven and he'll be there by the like around a tone on stuff like that. I think with the schedule, with how many races are packed into July and the early part of August, it's going to be really interesting to see who can handle the summer heat, because you're going to a lot of hot areas. I am because just looking at it, we're going to Michigan twice in August. It's going to be hotter than hell. It's going to be ninety plus degrees. You're to going to the day on a road core is very hot. Yeah, New Hampshire is going to be hot. Can's indy car met Ohio. I went to New Hampshire last year. was like I'll bring s. They pushed it back to even harder. I'm gonna get maybe even hotter and there's really to only road course is going to be hot. It's going to be no coverage and like the breeze from the ocean. It actually took humidity...

...this time of the year though, isn't it? I mean it was still hot at the five hundred and I really didn't feel anything. It was it was pretty hard to five hundred percent. It's not a bad and I think from New Hampshire to or the New Hampshire race to the road course is really going to test a lot of guys because they're going to be running four races and fourteen days. Yeah, especially probably like he problems multiple times. There's a lot of guys have been he progress. I mean Austin Dylan had to go to the Enfield after the race. Yeah, after Martinsville is here too. Yeah, yeah, but none. There's the guys that can handle out. Yeah, Matt the bet a pretty well. Yeah, yeah, there's some guys that I can handle it. I think I think bell can be welcome New Hampshire. Yeah, I can be going to tell where he's going to people's nutrition, I think more. Yeah, I think I will do that at Richmond to yeah, I bet they're not going there richmond, or they don't. They're going their second time. They did go out the first race. Oh, yeah, that's right, it and I forgot about that. Yeah, yeah, the main, the main key for like owners now in the playoffs is like to get their cars. Who wants locked in before day CONA? Because, like, if you're not locked Atona, then you need to really have locked in like speed stuff. I done your sign. I think it's going to be fun see to. I thinks you guys like kid parts. Yeah, we're going to see Almar Rolla, Kurt. I don't even know. If I don't even know about kyle being locked in by day told now. I think. I think Kylesman, because he's a race over. So like he could finish last and like crashing leapt to it'll still be like still be kind of but with his inconsistency, it just takes two good races from Byron or Reddick and all of a sudden Kyle's not safe at all. Yeah, it's true. I mean if custer kids win a race before Reddick, I mean that says something, right, that was really lucky. Right, I don't say anything. Look at this because I'd really bad the word that you can't finish our race. He could run my top five, top ten. Yeah, they come said stead really showed like what he had because he had he had like lockoll race or like he could run top five all over race, like fall back or have a mistake. Since last night, I think the rookies, the rookies are going to show off more at New Hampshire and Dover because it's going to have a similar package to the explinity series from last year. Yeah, if I'm true, like we can see them really taking off right there. Yeah, that's when it's going to get scary for some of the more experience guys, but also add PLONA. Don't be completely shouts for from nobody like my definitely it's mess at them. If me and my me and my dad, me and my dad already have all joy picked that the winner for that race. Le Joy bold choice. Yeah, I'm old. On the road course, there could be like a road course like the Ben Adetto or something could be ye, the road course, someone who can see the beds, because, yeah, if you look course, you could honestly see Jimmy Kyle Il and Adetto Michael McDowell. Like, Imagine McDowell wins that rain. Oh my God, Barnes, I remember Sonoma two thousand and nineteen. Yeah, I just say I iron can actually like do well, there you can, because and then well that can't forget...

...about the bottom day road ringer and chase ellion, because you know he's a knack for road courses. He makes a serious was using. What about if UM SPIRE BRINGS IN? Was it James Davison? He could really he won't be in the playoffs as he met a cup as he made a cupster. Yeah, but from what I heard there's rumors that money motorsports is finally going to have a car by the road course and Jordan Taylor is the main Jordan Taylor is the main person. That could be a big so anyvay, if they get Jordan Taylor and actually a good car inn like yeah, he's Hay to be a threat. That would really awesome. So, dude, I don't I don't even think with a bad car he's not. Like if he has a bad car, he could probably still be a threat. Well, I don't know, race we're they know the trash. Then maybe if he has like that kind of speed. Oh, like if he has like front room or sport speed or something like that, and he could definitely get there experience. It all depends on what that team brings. Like. Yeah, we don't. You don't know like what equipment they have. Actually, I gotta I got a feeling these cars on the day town of Road courser and be hitting up boards of two hundred on the front stretch. Oh, I think he'll be touching like two ten. They'll be close, pushing close to ten by the short course. Student can carry that, yere. They gotta run down. Yeah, they're not restricted. Yeah, they don't know. Yeah, I got it all there around. Yeah, yeah, yeah, they still got a carry speedering withers. And if there's like they were strict, maybe hard passion, because the part of yes, so it's as yeah, they are, and then sort of touch so backstrats, kN lap ones in the band interesting first terms to think there's no one. Want to see how many people over the first lap. I'M gonna be right near term. The entire for how that lap is going to be a mess. Oh, yeah, I feel like it's like they're going to have the wall, the like breaking wall all the way to wear the line coming out of the Enfield is. Yeah, that's how much they're going to need for breaking room. Well, wasn't that kill? Park? People did like they took it easy and when they first one to the role I didn't think they had the inswerent like any major in the first time they went to the roble. Yeah, every forget about the restart nu the end were like everything's talking about like lab like the earlier yes, well, know, they had practice. There's no no practice for deal and practice. Yeah, sure, yea. They had practice and Hollister for the role bowl. Yeah, yeah, it's going to be bad. It's there's a red much gout is going to be. It's going to be the All star race height and it's going to be the All star race failure. I believe it will be along those lines, but on a larger scale, because they're racing a Daytona and it's not speedway. Yeah's going to be really all races. Time to the playoffs. It's gonna be whoever drivers ever like naked after TN oval. Really, we have who over drives? Turn One. They turn us. Anyone, honestly, except like the guys. That was going to be too cocky. That was going to be too cocky. He might I think it'd be anyone really, since it's like, no matter what experience you have, you've never liked done a hamling.

Yeah, I feel like Kyle Bush, like someone like him, can still have runic as he's used to the used to the MC cars, not the heavy stock cars. All the part, you like a live the difference. There's actually not a lot of difference between the MSA car that he ran and the stock car. The MSA car actually has I think eighty leves horse power, but weighs, yeah, somewhere around a hundred pounds later. Yeah, yeah, when you break down a horse power to way difference, it's more or less the thing. Yeah, so he can actually do crazy amount of good and, believe Jimmy Johnson, I feel like that was still big take something, because you know, he's only run the ore furt there and that, yeah, it's a huge different stock car there. So, like God'll even take a little bit of like a like to depth to stuff like that. You guys think so draft basics that we do actual drafted. It's gonna be any rafting. Yeah, really is. It's going to be whoever survives. Yeah, because the good cards are getting good taken out, because you guys are going to overdrive trying to defend against them, knowing the track, and they'll just completely overshoot and take the good guys out. I will honestly see some of the top cars just drop back. Yeah, that's that's a good day. I wish they had actually failed. Bill Tach. Yes, but the only way because, like they're not qualifying. If they're qualifying, if I were them, I would just think purposely like not qualifer, like drop like so last stay in the back and he seeks into turn one. I think we'll see a few cars possibly fail tech. Yeah, yeah, you, just because they want to either. Child, but Jimmy Johnson, the guys that know, the Chazons, guys on the bubble to yeah, the guys in the bumble. I feel like the guys on the bubble are the guys that are like safe in the playoffs. I'm really gonna like go to the back most of the time. I think we'll see eric and Kurt Eric and Kurd will definitely lay back. Yeah, because they need them points kind of, because they're not like yeah, they want points, don't for it. I think we'll see guys like Byron, Reddick Jones try too hard. They'll probably take each other out. Jimmy's probably gonna be like really smart about had to drive it, but like the young guys are going to like put it for points and stuff like that, and they maybe us like their bumper points too many times. And Barnsley, well, yeah, but may the road course. There's also be diff friends. Yeah, how many guys who think that get either a truck ride or maybe ride for the there's not a lot of this. There's not allowed. It's already been reported. They're not, you know, because for trucks is like that triple truck challenge thing. So like yeah, if you're high speriously, not allowing yeah it. And then they already said just they already stated no cup guys can run even the Arca race, like Oh arcers racing. Yeah, yeah, it's good, gonna be that's going to be interesting. I don't even the last time using random of course they run, probably Watkins Glenn. If they ran...

...that Anah, Watkins Glenn or Sonomak Mann? I don't know. The original can and ran can and west went rand Sinoma. Yeah, yeah, no grabs everyone. Yeah, because they miss our road America. No, no, I don't think so. I don't think no, maybe they do. There's someone else I don't road America Yo often thinks you're looking on your computer right now. I'll go to breaking their friends and Jack. So originally the Arco Series Rosser was supposed to include mid Ohio and Watkins Glenn, both of those being scratched from exfinity series and the Cup series. I would assume that is also scratch from the arch. Yeah, I don't even know. I check. Forgot the art of schedule looks like for Rusty, at least it I can tell you. Yeah, right, ark is not the greatest song. They're looking for, like anything like schedule. Here is what is left for the Archer series has of right now. Right now you have Kansas. They're running that Friday. Yeah, Oh, they're running to Ledo on the thirty one. I they're running Toledo again on the first of August. Michigan they're running and as of right now, gateway. Forgot that. I don't even know what that one is. I'm really excited for Gateway getways. Like they don't have anything else. OF THEY HAVE MEMPHIS on there. They have Kentucky, Kansas. They were fair grounds, but I can't remember if that's I don't think that's Nashville. I don't think they. They're not there. It's mostly late moms. Yeah, then from the that's it. They don't have anything else. They have another one, but I'm not even sure what that is. They just have the racing listed. They don't even have words at listed. So how change? Twist the truck clasps and be interesting. Truck ploffs. Is Why don't open right now. That's kind of it's the rest. It is season for our racing. Differences. Like it's pretty it's pretty boring. It's gonna be like because it's the only Canadian tires. No outdoor. Don't like notable race. Just had so really Austin Hill, Ben Rhodes, Christian ECK is probably the only guy safe in that one. Yeah, thanks, thanks. Is Quick. Yeah, it's all tails. Eighty...

...six up. He's eighty six up, the same Smith he was. She was like right there Austin hills like two or three better resist and he's right. Now I think I like Aud and thirty nine, something like that point above. But uh, he's not like completely. We're gonna have to stop all the fun talk there and get ready to head out because we're almost up with that hour was a little short of this week due to being the first time set and everything up. Yeah, this is mostly just like kind of testing things out and stuff like that. Make sure the DM one of us and tell us like how lad you could improve and stuff. So we're shown that up real long. Tire. Kenny First, twenty minute. Kenny, quick final thoughts? I don't got much, but he doesn't like it. Austin, got any final thoughts? Yeah, on, yeah, tells anything right, is gone. Hey, little drop our picks for next weekend. Oh, there's great. Oh Yeah, let's do that quick. We got fifteen seconds. All right. I got bowman already put down like seeny. Yeah, I got I can't trust him anymore at this point. I'm going Chris, Chris, got boy Pascot, chase, Austin at Kirk Bush. Can you got booing? And I got Blaney, but UH, time there. Yeah, pretty much. We're about out of time. Yes, hopefully this goes better, next exact week. stee you boys next week. I'll talk to you throughout the week. Yeah, everyone who chut this out, following for this kicking, will put links. Yeah, it was fun. I can't do next weeks we're gonna have fun. Yeah. Yeah, yeah, once I think we'll have to find a way, though. It's gonna be interesting with the schedule. Will figure it out with the yeah, mascar schedule. Yeah, yeah, we'll try.
