Jot that down and of course we'll update you on all the latest news of the day. Kim cool will be here to talk about social media. But right now we're joined by two gentlemen to whom upstate New York is a very very special spot one guy is the president. Of Watkins Glen International. Michael print up Michael how are you sir. Eli can't desecration and demand. And also joining us a man who knows all about upstate new York and its sports traditions and does being part of that community. He is Regan Smith from the NASCAR X thirty series currently fourth in points how highest share. I'm doing good Eli outlet up things for you. Everything is nice thank you I'm looking forward to head up to the Finger Lakes this weekend. So Regan if you have the choice. I don't oval track verses a road course how far have you come. In New York comfort levels on a road course clearly we run so many more ovals. But weary you now compared to where your first war when you saw an attack that very first road course years ago. What they the first one minute and stop current of that attack does actually it was actually the lion and now the first time there it's intimidate I mean it's. It's a faster of course you go to the s's than in the way that it touched on this eaten the G forces that hole. You trying to teach your arm lifted up so he can shift the third fourth year out the ups and he'll get are under Al. Elements directed at you trying to do that and that they'll go look it took me a little while first to get acclimated with the arm wanted to. I had that looked forward on there's much of that in any rally along at Gary matter federal watching very there's that's exciting for me you know. Now watch all my heroes are on the track in the kitten and now like it's Mexico or aero on it as well. I'm I would yeah that's what I would I would rank it right up there with you know somewhat biblical epic when people ask me what are your spirit tracks acutely about the murder or on a line. Mostly because I'm real partial to Darlington and I've always into it almost at that. It would be right there you know right there would be opponent and the land and your neck and equity each other the outlook or. Wonderful Michael or not you obviously have to think that that's music to your ears because you know for years. It was all these road course ringers. I'm now really you know Boris Said shows up and that's about it that these guys have gotten pretty darn good on your lay out. It's it's incredible upstart Colorado Regan the maestro I mean that was we talked about can have an abrupt. And I really appreciate them. And millions and yeah I'll have to. As a fellow new Yorker and and I I have to give a good shot out to the governor. And region they both teamed up a couple of years ago and stepping out together and he takes care meteoric external like I'm glad that. You know it it is I mean you you know I only got to inherit his job obviously didn't make it. You know there's a lot of people before me you know obviously that's just relieved me. 81 could plan and all the race car drivers like Regan says. All the seems too good to recognize it. I think could be my dream to be given. A backup. Thirty years of course maybe 46 and a heavier dream I would love to do the same thing impact and be able to try to make it to try to put as a lot slower than you have to drive it. And I never have that GeForce probably talked about but. Yeah probably at a different view that you are too so. Anyways it's a lot of time that we can't wait obviously have all the other drivers come here this weekend. It all my first time beer track a lot of folks of this year I may not know. But MRI am used to do Formula One races the United States Formula One. Before US Grand Prix. And you know the first time I ever went to the gland was way back in the seventies and you know there came a John player special on this one that was man that was that was something special taking nothing from what we've got now. But you know the Formula One cars running at the gland if you never experienced that Michael you know these guys miss something special. Yeah I would agree in you know just live reading the history of course that was. Literally prohibit these very lines I know I don't read it was just that I really think about it. I don't know I don't know even. That may Allah be called yeah. Love what I think we're going back where Regan just is you know. When you get the race the gland. In his level and what they get to accomplish here these are adding up to people would have released here from. From NASCAR to pimps. Two campaign. Am to Formula One. I mean who was soon released Watkins Glen and so. I I really am am am always doubled home I hope I never ever forget that feeling like when the driver like Regan says. I you know I grew up watching it now I get Theresa my attitude is so cool to me. Now am I that you have a lot of respect and admiration for guys like me him. I know how I open Eli. I look back now in any better after you watch some bull Formula One takes an in what some of the newer movies that come out he met. Different Britain's got some of the footage that they've pulled out. It's always interest when the iron to eight of the Blanton and shall some of those or the one what did you what used to look like back and what it looks like now. Some of the things the same problem that are different and to watch those cars go around it. Just it's absolutely credible lots of and they haven't seen him. On my nose but it had a couple of movies to the car recently that the now careers and lives and stuff that they're worth watching just eat at all sure and let the glam look like that. Now I ran in the Marten Rundle a couple of years ago at the Glen during a but Tudor series broadcast he'd never been there as a what are you doing here now at this age in the staging your career goes like cannot. Continue and retire without running a race that want it and I mean we're talking about one of the greatest names and all the voters are. Anyway we digress. Let's zero went got a bit I'm not Connecticut city aren't we can sit and talk stories all night long. But their Regan let's start from a guy in the driver's seat such as yourself it seems over on the cup side. Bad Joseph Gibbs racing now has become the dominant organization that they've won five of the last six races. How fine how fine is that lion. You know your fourth in points in the X thirty series how fine is the line. Between where you are and the point leaders between them Hendrick Stewart Haas combo and and Joseph Gibbs racing right now how how. Then is the difference there from first place to fourth or what have you. Bought tickets I think Terry and you know when you look at it and and speak into the Tudor series and on the cup side. You know it started the year often and it almost appeared as though maybe you've been at what speed that they want a new season started off. And we've seen in the course of basically you know sixteen or seventeen weeks they've gone from may be trying to find this Ito's first 67 racist all suddenly turned the corner. Rather they develop some new stuff from the change in systems obviously I'm not. You know I don't get to India that are working so I don't know what they daughter changed between now and a button they hit. And despite sitting out we've seen off for their cars. Seemingly in the top five is I think eight completions for about the past six weeks now at six weeks spread ground not to maybe Kentucky area. It really started turn informed so. Apple whatever they follow whatever they're working and they were working toward the start the year it's I start form. Pretty clearly got a much speed and anybody in the field right now. I don't think that we can count on that indicate collier along I think you know teams realize gonna have to go to work and I'm a little remorse either and that people on the that there. Every organization to put a push on right now and the one thing we don't know that some organizations and locked into the chase already. Our army B sample to stop for further down the road they don't wanna bring out until it's close to cheat that's the other thing that. You don't want to get that first win and it releases that pressure just a little bit and and they can start human and they can start development site at. I think we're still gonna get a little bit of a new look over to the chase and in the cream always right now we're gonna see those same twelve to sixteen guys really they're on further from the wind and order of the points. Robert Gibbs certainly not strong or Bonner right now on and when you look and the extent that. Same thing I'm in the you'd expect Indy cars are extreme and that's. You know we pilot its America unit or sports that we need to work on and you get a little bit better. Our short track program our recourse programs and strong last year and this year we got to cop and now. Our intermediate program com and not think the two little more comparable we add a little bit more speed. The fortunate thing for us that we got four weeks and if you count Iowa last week X five weeks of up short track and road course race and which allows us to go do something that it leads. You elect or indeed shape what at least that now all I'll still working on how the stuff and trying to get better trying to catch up to you know to it and Penske kinda. And it seemed to have the majority in dispute are series. Michael quickly does your ticket sale. Reflected a difference. Depending if one organization is dominating or another is. You know not lately you lying the last four years have been climbing tickets were climbing again this year. The trick will be you know from our team 15102000. More than last year. I think what people really look at is just for us. It's just there's the competition on the track the drivers to make Kennedy McCain and two of the Sprint Cup guys. And then driver's seat me. They're just rocket that I mean all three series are banging out a great weekend. And I think that's what our plans are looking at I think that's what to watch on TV.

Then Ryan blaming you led four he led 252. Were so you were best in class. He did not leave the very Manny to lead there that are sure they were Brian stronger race car and not. You know we did everything to that last restart snookered me a little bit he got a good start and able to jump out and knows. Us open I can go into turn one thought that I'd let them. And now financial from the restart he jumped more than out of the plant out though it he got up hurt a little bit but that they were there are back. You know I think brought salute it was promising to keep that speed that we at their. That we at all myself and cheats in the top on my long and and you know contend it's irked early laps at a shot that went. On that so that told him look for audio we got to keep built mountain. No doubt pay Michael let's talk about some personalities you've been around racing forever Kyle Busch despite running out of fuel. Obviously didn't win foreigner role but he still the hottest driver in the garage he won the truck race on Saturday at the pocono. Tony Stewart he qualified in the top five last couple of races. Faded and anybody had a decent run in the top ten at pocono. Can Kyle keep up the moment demand idiots think Tony is starting to turn the corner. I think both of those things are gonna happen this weekend I think you're looking you only get a couple last laps sites on Sunday. Weird that Tony. Kyle and brand. Just really played at all and I'm sure in the last slept are all going to be gone thank goodness Marcos Ambrose who beckon Australia. Now that he's gone Kyle's not run an ounce on the weekend a media ex Minardi race it's going to be good opportunity Regan for. A series regular to get a W. It'd it'd and I can tell you that would that we had conversation earlier at our races does that mean the most Ian and to meet that you know one would rank right up there to limit your home track that's about it especially it and I'm Lynn quotes a bank up at a sports there are your run on third from the dirty the race last year to boot to the two Penske cars actually. Anderson I have quite enough speed up there that's up to them that lot of cop and has gone into this week and I can promise yet. I'm not in the lead on the last lap and it easily gonna do our Kinect and yet elite so that'll make it for river but it watching any. You know that place is always acted it. Just blows me away how many people come out the Irish in and out than it is now. It cataracts are a little bit more we hear that we keep the excitement level endemic it's a little bit more pumped up well we given those great Kirk. Now and I don't wanna give up the impression Michael. That you guys are sold out because that's the last thing I'd wanna do bucked. The way you search ranking is in the way. You have offense lines in where the general admission in the reserves are in all of that. You're really not that far away from being at capacity. Mel you know that trivialized you know it's the grandstands there are running out of capacity. But general mission for a road course is always something it doesn't Sonoma always enjoy pitching keeps selling general admission tickets he went. Capacity outfits you're seats. Mad but I will tell you this campaign. We've added two more camping locations we've rather that's fifty acres of camping and we don't have about 4050 spots left as of today. Wonderful well listen before I let you goal Michael immune to Regan but Michael in particular would not be an official. Eli gold Michael print up interview that if I did not ask you if there's any more talk about the cup cars running the boot section of your track. Has got. Is not dead Dunham and sitting and finished or. Is there are glimmers somewhere of extending leave the course for NASCAR. It may never happen and our lifetimes Eli but I would pass that won back to Regan and just go. What do you think about race from the boot there's a drive. Her I think what absolutely go for. You know may get decorate intercept controller hit it on the cheap just a Mike that NAND opened the Buddha or not. I think we'd all be excited to try to I don't know if not hurt in the past that breaks up something to do that that our brakes and dual or not to look at but I. They get driver's dot certainly embraces these four trotted out. That of course from a guy who'd love to probably see seven irate road courses on the schedule and so while absolutely never mind. I hear you are Regan thanks so much for your time and listen connect and grants and a great season so fine. You know Chris butcher and chase Elliott and Ty Dillon everybody still. Well within shooting distance of you so would lots of races ago wouldn't surprise me to see at the top of the heap when the season's done.

And it's a pleasure thank you Regan and Michael very quickly with a minute remaining in this segment. For those who have yet to make their plans.

As a team even though an outperform the level we want to performing well enough to make it into. Chase it if you news that you're gonna finish you know.

I'm now via headliner of the weekend just past he of course is Matt Kenseth. Who played the fuel mileage game to perfection on Sunday. To win at pocono raceway matter how YE a good evening burger operator I am well sir thank you and as I greeted you before. You'd never know in this business most unusual high. Yeah yeah I've ever I really felt elect the first race at pocono recoup our. You're finished sixth program a little bit better map and an we had a card in it's Sunday to stump. Couldn't quite run with the leaders got beat up on restarts pretty cute cute. And 1878 at four was probably a lot better too and broke but but anyway I would talent and are Albanian. You know that last front installment it's been a little bit gaps but he really thought we were okay Annette. I would try to round three to go around and doing things are both took about to get a little more side in their reduced plan on. Did you realize did you know how close everybody else was said the guys. Kept you totally informed. No not really. I had some idea because the lap which pitted on. You know that was so a few laps more than what Jason I've got more and we could run blocker great. Doctors are reduced it a little bit early anticipating caution that and to get their and you know. They don't sit in Q under caution and not want to get caught. Under racetrack when the yellow came out you know Monica or rely on a pit at a time but that it would be you know in years over her luck going and so should help. There's been a Ali cautioned there lately and number obvious that their walk outs on but it so. I knew that everybody was ala critical foreign aid group lap for a Sunday that. I wasn't sure what lap they changed or ATP announced like its earlier outlook through to go I was so. I was pretty surprised at that that's a long way to pocono took two of mr. by. So once he ran out of new that are rated must be a little bit pollsters that well all of that work. Let's go to the phones at 1802. NASCAR. Terri is in Mississippi hello Terry. Men Hannity just didn't manage. To bigger and now. Issue on the final lap and agility it. Yeah that's good question I think that the biggest difference and it just tracked this year you know Collins was brought news starter until it out of whatever state do it and they're both regular vote or rework and fuel. You know here's a lot cleaner air which in turn you know makes more Greg which burn more fuel. We were back there a little bit more and in what you got about fifteen goalie we knew we were gonna catch leaders are to our problems and the people behind a source slowing down they feel also that well look early Coke or window where we could slowdown in and they've you know that's an advocate remarked you'll. Without movement this and that restrict. I thought your comment that you crossed the line was remarkable. Well could you believe this crap we're gonna win at pocono back. But it does tell how incredulous you are. He just never have a more cult like and a lot of them not work out that beat out sooner or audible. There's a few times have been in position at what ever happened here aren't you know or or or something happened that there's been other Tom you're gonna now you know lead nominee integration.

Visit it would Matt Kenseth. Let's talk about some of the story line is of the last few weeks and looking ahead to the next number of weeks. I had Kyle Busch on the show last week and he said he didn't mind all the rule changes he thought it was good it was refreshing of course he had been running well. Dale Earnhardt junior a few weeks ago said well you know. I'm not that thrilled with the all of these different aero packages all the rule changes you know when we given what groove we like the stayed there. What's your take on all of that. You know I I think the problem of not assert that the driver very well wallet but now what's best for us not think that. Well I know that that Powell will Alter rules package at all all three very different. You don't racetrack so. So to give it away at that the matter because he's been able and at all. You know obviously. Hendrick can esoteric art equipment there that perhaps the standard rules package last couple years they've been pretty much unbeatable Lester they're pretty much unbeatable at this year there she really strong as well I'll pop that bottle wanted to change it either a lot of relatives. You know me I'm kind of middle of brand piece it was all well come on code proponent an epic Diana looked. Of running lower downforce a operates at their Kentucky was very exciting bit rates enemy really enjoy it watch enough. The eighteen car run down to 22 and use different parts the racetrack you know point to try to. Tried to block or wasn't such an aero disappears behind them that carpet still maneuvers car pass them the Quebec to pass each other back or fortunately. Yeah you know that was cut to meet. Or old school racing when I started watching what I really you know. While most org enjoyed watching. Yeah. You know people crazy either Townsend trying to buy a mechanical grip and not to survive so much on air and been able to reach each other like that looked. That was on the watch and noses of one right sample but that was well. That was exciting in my mind I enjoy that I hope that they do anything different that would go on a lower down force on. Setting to make a little feature passive system. Just soaked up for the trailing cart path looks leading current now he's gonna be as westerners there are a lot of extract that. You know you know he would be out here wrote minor aspect after a very few here faster he has so. You know whatever Koppel reports that.

Timothy in Melbourne Florida you're on NASCAR live that Matt Kenseth. I would one askew with the announcement earlier today you pared down to being moving out forward with the Joseph Gibbs organization and it sounds like he'll be in the cup series here within the next three of five year. And at that you think guy he's going to be to the organization. I think he'll be a big asset to the organization and you know one thing I think your own book and for from a or standpoint. You know obviously drivers and crew chiefs and not just current on that we're we're the future one's gonna be so of the car that's been around longer you'd.
