Yet they've told me about it and they cannot aegis are told us so the situation that was going on with the pickers and you know really at first I was a little bit concerned that we would have any guide there anything on injured motorsports as a really good job of having development pickers. On the side that can step in whenever they're needed and are we really rely on it got a lot admitted they did really good job or that and without any crack sister or any awareness that they're gonna beat burst into the spotlight that. That afternoon that was really cool our defeat and step up and on disagree. Great time with them so hopefully on bacon I enjoy batting. You prepare for an exception. I know that Hendrick motor sports is capable of of having qualified individuals on site but. As one that is generated in her an event with a lot riding on it. Did you at least think about. Wonder how this is gonna go I mean you have your normal setting guys and now you got brand new people that's gonna be hitting your race car in.

Thanks Mike well every one is talking about Mac Kansas win at Phoenix. Obviously man has no plans to race in twenty teens so that victory was nice though on his 2017 season. And it seemed like everybody jumped on Twitter to celebrate Max. His career as well as that Phoenix Wayne. And I solidly from Dale Earnhardt junior said that when I just Mac tip his hand after the race today and said quote one of the old hag and that's that was pretty funny. Also as many young guns came out to congratulate Matt Ryan Lee actually went to victory links to Matt's hand under the picture of that kind retreated that along with the continent. Always looked up to match my dad told me that the best racing in her eyes. I was a kid. True statement but I think my favorite tweet that I saw aftermath claim was on Mario Andretti. Now we're talking about one of the best racers across all motor sports. He tweeted hey Matt candid if I had a team in NASCAR's you'd be my driver great job at points race they no doubt you've still had so again.

This week is the final week of our ten part series called junior's journey this week. We explored Dale Earnhardt junior's legacy. Lot of expectations. Coming in and committed in my career. A did. Know what I was capable I. Only wanted to be able to make a live and as a driver and what I mean Matt that is that I didn't wanna. Path item one a half to worked at the dealership changed Doyle was a McCain Aiken and get bad in progress through that part of the business. And as it was enjoyable but it wasn't racing and I wanted to be able to race well enough to do it for live. I think he is the last of a dying breed. Real old man you know I'm saying I hate to say that the like real. Authentic. Blue collar and now called build your blue collar people that long wanted to take it they can debate me on that because of what is bank outlets like I got it. But the fact of the matter is Dell doesn't even know what's his bank. He's the broke his rich guy I've ever met in my life. Dale still needs to borrow money we go to the talk about dropped him. Okay in I am convinced. It is he had to do it tomorrow he could go back and change all of the dealership in and be okay with other people around him included might leave I'm making myself. We might have a problem let it but the fact that matters dailies that humble. I mean doses gonna go down. He just says you had gotten X store I mean anybody that talks about. They obviously in them and they love them because he's just honest he's real he's a minute you open. And they describe my dad like that you know my dad was like. Everybody's working man got them but Dale's a sore back got it today. Hang out have a beer wit her. Or whatever Dale Earnhardt junior is say hello again. He's gotten that I look up to. From we've had our differences. But he's never shied away from tell me exactly how it feels bad. I think it was four pay attention to I have a lot of respect for him and whatever decision he makes its. You know. Back on that legacy started long before him you know and he period of flak for that legacy for a long time Tom kept that fan base alive and that's not on his shoulders he'll do that and it's just not it's always I've felt this little bit unfair for him to have you have them workload on in that. He's done a good job with that. The likelihood of me going iron or out there and accomplishing what he. That if I did race I was gonna have to. Deal with that compare us and him being in the shadow bit. But it was worth it challenges that that brought. With it. The success in this the fortune and in the the enjoyment was much much more worth. No deal with the comparisons stuff like that after awhile people started seeing me for who I was and I was realizing that nothing like like my dad. We're two different people and in the started kind of appreciating me for who was in and seeing it differently says seeing these separate person and it's. Speak to the her legacy and I've just they're proud. Try to uphold name really whale and the good things scored add to that legacy. Father already established and not let my father down there.

Even existed in the first place and you know the necessity of having like some rules and sanctions and cabinda from the driver's seat what they. And it it's incredible to see they'd be steel rod for private profit of at least eight. Sold about not model is perhaps how upstate without any seizure four or sixty years. Absolutely so what you for a moment lot of folks know about the CW show. Isles have a small party he's the feature score quite believe that kids other. But I which is Miguel's that. But truly that will be you know the heart and soul of the movie is on Benjamin Bratt and delegates yet and companies shoulders I mean these guys they'd be. They bring a beautiful movie to for families and it's so. Well Bonnie you know the thought that he takes place during that iconic Mexican celebration of the of the death yet it as much those that's just a beautiful decoration.

Little tweak to be a little bit better in a couple of areas that those are great peril developer predict that it wouldn't you know. Resolved through their rhythm you'd like that people could do that so I or special toward Bravo we're in a car here there are kind of hang in there where the leaders face. Really have felt like a bullet the whole race that you know what the crew got out front and Denny. But you know rigorous shot up out there are good enough or rappel down Al brought that was. You know big advantage and can you control the restarts which so which helped block. A lot of times we hear drivers talk about how different their car handles when it's out front. Verses when it's in traffic can you explain the difference and how did your steel in both situations. Well I mean you know it changes. You know sometimes subtract track early it will put a week to week and also depends. Dominic Carter try to enter rods that a little bit will be target. You're never sure how different it would be Leo are really you know brought so for us. You know we were there pretty decent or or or reduce that a little bit tight or idol also the time. And actually got out brought they are to loosen up. You know we're still able to hang on most of ever lose that restart it which he's got five. And I actually got back by it right yep but not to our section about decorum back down by what. We were seeing some lines used on Sunday that we hadn't seen used at Phoenix report specially. The hi Elaine in three import that track really widened how did that help you. By having another lane offering did that help Putin when that race on Sunday. You know op again helped a little bit early in the race. Before Robert got up that offer group you know when it. Cars boats specially. The most pressure are way way up there does that look of her career extracts so when you do that they're certainly more grip and it especially at the track ages. When nobody is runners on rubber to hit it that simple as it or break as more grip but it also your in the gas. Well a lot more better in low mr. liquidity under our ourself. I'd been wide now up operations forget there a couple of it is so boxes target. You know wrong about people not. And try to pass sure. Tenet and neck cancer at the winner of the can am 500. Sunday at Phoenix raceway was listening tearing car audio after you took the checkered flag and you made mention. To the head to the team that you don't see a bagel crying baby there was also the most an idea. At the start finish line which you're well and titled and we approve of that here on NASCAR live good to see a driver with passion and emotion but the emotions you displayed after taking the checkered like. What was going through your mind and what created what we saw. Well out there along you know frustrating trying see that you know. Or a lot of her reasons are a lot of different ways. Really a lot of probably started you know a year ago when hurt Phoenix Barack. You know twenty seconds away from deacon white Ford Reagan and bill two great search habits are almost better. You know college cautioned that crashed out on the restart and from there on our systems like. This art I'm close races irks. Lot of different reasons there early perform. Most of this year two what I feel like. We're capable performer and lead to many laps would be a position to win. In president have a wait until Sunday so. You know and also in all circumstances or so of not being there next year in all black outs also just stop. You know just got a lot of emotions and you know Europe the middle your racing career in order. However it's going to just art ever envision the end. And they wouldn't want it creeps up on rallies that day in and in and we haven't at a rate you know race when it ought that your app but think that. Get a win there and you know close it out over time they're at JGR. Where those guys. Worked so hard those guitarists is like Spock ears so that was so important. For me didn't secure and others here especially dirt that you're like this you know quote I don't. You talk about reality setting in this weekend. Could be your final race of your career depending on how the future. Turns out have you have you done a lot of reflecting heavy done a lot of having those reality checks that knowing that this could be the final time you get inside of a stock car. You know more so. Typically do that without much say you know we still have a race last. And or read to go there give it my all and you know try to get a win and it. You know race is ours and regret that last week's earlier. Chris Brown are still trying to look forward you know one instead of backward so. You know our our road for a weekend and look of torture. Two Sunday. It's been a lot of that a lot of farm and you know it's and so it's been a pretty.

What is homestead Miami speedway gives you guys when people onto the property and you pull out onto the racetrack what's at track like to race on. Have great racetrack very unique. Or some state reconfigured it. It's been real racy obvious early why it. Kind of a lot of while different options that there are the first sort of thing to kind of do look very or compound baking at the track and open racetrack are are really really different so it really unique really aren't that challenging track and you know it up or bedevil their right.

NASCAR was racing at the Ontario motor speedway in Southern California that day it was Benny Parsons taking the checkered flag. In the LA times 500. And Dale Earnhardt. Won his first seven champions.

And NASCAR was racing at the Atlanta Motor Speedway that day he was Rusty Wallace who's winning his tenth race of the season and again Dale Earnhardt. It was a championship celebrated for his sixth time both drivers Quaker. And Davey Allison who rates. Rusty Wallace moment it's great to be here Dale Earnhardt went for 1993.

It's their reality is is that you know this year we've we've made it through this round and then I'm thankful for that. And then hopefully let them know we can make it count next week.
