And then the else copper world classic at the use to run out there. And justice is critical of the copper down at Phoenix. This was a weekend that they had spring cards me Jets. You G some kind of Winston west cars are out there. New Winston west cars early models and super modified it's nice in super modified its our job. They're pretty big up in the north east in Ohio upstate New York. And then there is out west. I don't hall of all places there's some racetracks open Idaho Washington State enters the western us the east association around super modified need. Pringles curse on Phoenix and these things are to us. If you remember the old Indy for an engine in year old stirs. Well dusty would account out if Indy cars would have stayed with the engines up front they prior would be involved in to a super modified. What do you do with these engines are up in front but there offset to the left. May have all the way to of course they try to move everything to the left is the race on ovals they have these huge wings in the back. In these things are so fast fifteen expect in a in the 1980s and early ninety's that they were. They could actually they were timing as fast as the rear of the field for the Indy carries offense these guys that are. And a rather that a sprint car midget drivers. And some IndyCar Dre respect and he would raced easings as completely blew commit should Johnny Parsons these guys and it was a huge huge event and it was as Rodney would a member TNN. Hill country station would I think he involved eventually became speicher believe. But it was a country is based in Nashville thing dealer broadcasting have them and when ESP answered and to broadcast. NASCAR races in a 1880s. Because they needed content. And one of the things he'll there's a lot of back then. In years PM Kersey and your probable sports of one minute I drove for I owner yeah I mean everything in NASCAR. I mean filled a nice gap and they were gaining decent ratings and end of rates fees or worked they are now and I mean NASCAR and away really built ESPN back in the day. And but they can do all the races. And does this he'll see even back then the season was quite long so tee and and kind of filled in net vacuum where they would do probably a dozen races a year. And it was a through. Company called. There was diamond. Anyways so they a lot of these who races were on TNN in the off Ozal broadcaster copper. And Ellis set to need to vent Pacman. But anyways he Woody and you could see Phoenix's cause need because as this one mile trek. It was chemical because he knows fishy if you're Livan appear back when I was the only kid you're watching the stuff. And it's snowing here but it Phoenix's two really nice and they got these wild cards that you didn't see the Agassi appear. And it made. It was a neat event and it shall we are the blue. The site Atlanta Phoenix around trying to. Bring this wrongful circle is there a lot of odd ball things he had that little so term wonders of the school offshoot who they jumped out Mort. On the and and first turn and then it when you won around the turn to in the backstretch at dogleg there is opening. And they want to razors road course urban that was also for emergency vehicles to go there and then of course he had to mountain. Which is owned by India Indian. It's a union part of Indian reservation. And it is it was it is a neat neat track and fortunately the kind of got away when he read configured track couple years ago. They kind of smoothed it out and kind of Turk took bubbles quirky misses. Are are that. Course dog leg is still there. And he got that beat sweeping turn and have it in part where the guys can cut the corner with two very were rarely ever worked but does make some. In Justine. Looks for a TV. And then the the other thing is there a re gonna redo this track and they're spending a lot of money in a movie and have the start finish line up the torch turn to. So basically. The grandstands and everything's going to be built around turn to towards turn one and the owner Richard on the old grant since on the front straightaway now. So frustrated way won't be front straightaway shall become only the best stretch so we interest in the C it was truly a month ago or hundred million dollars. Well so should be rooting interest in the other entry house parkinson's to somebody's couple weeks ago and they used to go to Phoenix in the seven is when they were. On young buck Indy car mechanics in it was in the middle of nowhere in the last some bows out there was in 94 and even back then. It was still rural rural area. And now it's all built up in still still wouldn't mind you know they're an excellent three IndyCar race African put some things together. Otherwise I silly to get out there his it's it's a neat neat track. In the should be neat race for those wondering toilet Donald did get the pole yesterday. Four to thirteenth annual Camping World 500. And I would go Ryan blaming will be starred alongside an easy is looking pretty good this year hasn't he so for Jeff. Yeah he has yet again you know some great finishes Daytona. He finished fantastic he's really coming into his own and and he's shown some power behind that of the wood Brothers team in up. And a lot of lot of fans will be happy be here this deal or hurt you knew call for its third. It's taken a few races it seems to kind of get his groove back as an. Yeah we do know he got unlucky in the 500 but that happens you know to most people. Especially with the wreck fest that we had this year so you know at at least he's gotten through the first crash he knows that his body can can hold up Oden. You know I expect his confidence to look to build a new should start racing for you know start contending more than he has. In the next couple guys are guys that have really. Really been looking good cuts consistently last few races that's color sent. And then Jamie McMurray who started fifth he's are running strong in the America salts new course. And then a case though it I mean he can have done that those four guys right there have been running strong in. Have been very very consistent. This year nets and Kyle arson is just. Knock announces he'll Lopez's knee knocking on the door he gave you know a lot of people gave him flak for given on the inside. And it lamb out. And or was that at at Vegas. Either way he EA was race a prayer for a chance to win in and he you know league I think it was Atlanta yeah he gave up the inside and and ended up. Wouldn't you know still had a good finish putt but didn't win but he's knocking on the door chase Elliot he was fastest in morning practice today. So get all those guys are certain. Are off to a hot start well one thing is graduate tracks arrogantly and Michigan some of those you know. You may not want to get competence I just the car is like seen. Now what are up there to slap it all there and it indicates sick at. Well was as much as Kyle Larson Los are on the top line you know if you even if he couldn't make his car stick on the bottom. The first thing everybody is gonna say as well he loves the top too much. We're gonna take a quick break here than what we're gonna talk about last week at Vegas and trying to think no.

There is there is that there's a big elephant in this room that we haven't talked about Padilla. Sustained Aaron the corner what is Oakland a's haven't. I hope my partner good you know. Got a lot the Oakland days. Our love their uniforms in mogul. The local what the L front with the pennant in his trunk. Maybe to go all who won't go back like the seventy uniform I got a school's art. I get a friend of mine in Madison who who. Who posts. An old aveda blue rally fingers are well over Catfish Hunter of total blow once every three weeks are in baseball seasons in that same thing. Alia yeah that's their old school is the way to go and you're not remains spam. And if you're a if you're Twitter fan there is a relief a couple cool 1970s. Based. Putter count on through it then pull some really cool photos. In the Twitter verse. Picture I don't you think you need to. There was quite pregnant Posner Dennis. Well ideas you know what what can say I I. About 97. On the Twitter here. You are you weren't that was that was your heyday come on you have your leisure suit and your big air and everything. Though bottoms. Out I respect the guy you can develop bottom courier there a better year at the bell bottoms. Little to worry too young for the best yeah and you're. You know I had actually got this problem when it and the best ally only like you know. Yeah and that's I had that are passed up a bit. Ed at in debt big big pollster Tom skilling in your bedroom. Our minor and. Now. Yeah but they were back in the day when he had him pop out walk. That was announced this cardinal fan. Old hat and I would would be. Then. I'm surprised you know but there that's the most impressive thing and although I think. An event other than a free throw so listeners not known. Dennis Dennis is a meteorologist. Are why. We still are are well are is there some. Is is are some tape delays in these places Xena you have to continually do that does not and now I can say I'm a former EMT because I never kept up my license so. Yet the only thing I would say is that they'd meteorologist. But you're out of the trade you you know miss out on a few attribution as he models and and seven that I keep up with it pretty but I. You don't know skills are rusty you don't do it for awhile it's like a race car driver you don't race harper for about ten years you're gonna get real rusty. That's the only proper. That's a good point getting back to the Dolphins are OK in my limited this is I am this is right proclamation. From sees. I'm coming down off the mound with my tablet. Mr. Brian France. You'd you'd you'd have this you want to be like all the other sports you want to have playoffs. You want to have teams. U you'd you emulated in Indy little. Notes that you used your broadcaster. Is scenes comparing making comparisons constantly to stick and ball sports. This and that and how we you want to be accepted. With all the other ones you want to. You eat you you want to be. You know with baseball football and basketball. And even hockey. But yet when you have a flight. And a guy lands a punch on TV I humility actually missed the punch and TV did mr. Geoff klock clemency. As the video of the week last week I must given kudos for that offer that video. But the you'd natural landed upon which I mean full extension everything and how they're original fide much less the race suspension. I think to a lot of fans. In pro in Greece scene into sports fans in general kind of shake your head in goal. This is really a sport because even an hockey they will penalize you have suspend you for Freud Dennis before exerts. Well I think maybe. That they sport but NASCAR wants the emulate more. Is the WW. Ease so maybe what we're going to see this weekend during try every introductions. If you get a seat Kyle Busch grabbed the microphone away. From the guy given that it you know do immediate announcements. Get your picture off all hope hope you know it just solely the big step and got brought hook. Go to the East Coast where there's got. Jill we go to Madison with these quarters very well and its goal it. Okay. Were going to see this week yeah. Okay however just has a good counterpoint jump what do you suspension to be author. Well I think the fight was fantastic for NASCAR I think that NASCAR got. Time on ESPN during selection Sunday of the NCAA tournament. And they got a lot of time on sport center and all the other highlight shows that they normally wouldn't of gotten. If it was just a regular race and there was no antics post for. However what was what was being said on Twitter and everything. After a race or. They're back apparently market yeah so my feeling is okay if you're gonna goal of zero see this and what frustrates me Oki had to fight you know. Okay. What I don't like his Joel gone all in there and it and it and and Bowden and bush look. We all know don't. Her sorry were you and you know this that bought no talk it up now he got you guys have gone down this road. You might as shall continue I don't wanna hear no BS apology that I know they don't mean. Looking leg Ryan leaf reading from a piece of paper that's crap. If you guys are now have a fight within talk it up and don't don't backtracked. You know mr. Penske mr. respected car owner. I mean this is a guy who fired a guy after winning the championship because he can give along was crude he contests and whatnot. I mean this is either major shake my head dead ago. A jerk play Joel O'Donnell can drive for Roger Penske and its ridiculous. I am going to be her and you gonna be punching guys in national respect tourism and attract. And mad now I understand Vegas wasn't that bad of a deal I think bush over you know bush was a guy and a wrong here but still. Injured Joseph a's got a lot of baggage. You know that's hot melted away the role at all backtracked. Now I'm not not not Jonah what doctor absolutely not but I'm. Wrong in this situation this is all started but Kyle Busch because he was battling. For court position have been why why his apology just a lot he. And in pile drove down. And then Joel the cattle all over drove the corvettes but he was apologizing forwards overdrive in the order that did the Giants. Stop biting purport position now. Is that there in the I don't want anything to do with this style operation because that'll show that the millions of dollars of these guys. They've taken the race and so a lot of these guys. There's nothing wrong with what happened now the problem that I haven't. You know start acting ardent of exposure from this and they know this has always Q. While saying you know wink wink don't don't fight it's the old adage. You know what you see that there's signs that joke signs that short track. Fight in the pit area hundred dollar line fight on the front stretch fifty dollar bounce. You know it's it's all about show I get that out but that could have accomplished the exact same knee. In their show by giving a fine or giving appropriation Eric period to accomplish. He was the only one in the wrong because. It should not be tolerated to take a punch. Eddie fellow competitor after the race they want to stop a little bit that's fine. He came over and that was as close to a sucker punch you can see round a little leaguer. And he deserved the punishment that he got this but he hitting the front of the car or whatever happened. And it and carving a gash because at least he came away with some thing. Because they're should've been a token I'm ownership in a probationary period because otherwise Greenberg courage. More of this kind of frantic. But you know it's our as downstairs to injure Serb everything's okay I'm happy to be back in the. While I agree with you Dennis I think this was completely Kyle Busch's fault he was. So aggressive that he didn't want to slow down knowing nick has allows ski and was off the pace so he just rammed his car straight straight and a look down now. But then he wants to take offense when Le guy now. Doesn't want to lift when he's going into the turn in the race and for fourth going to the checkers so it's obviously. You know in my opinion Kyle Busch's fault but then I'm with you is well Steve I don't think there. You know especially look I don't he's on this apology to were all week long all I'm sorry for this and sorry for that I'm sorry for this. If I was him I would apologize for any. You know. Well he got power he got door slam the door slam packed our. And the only difference the second Arabic got here. Like stop and see see the one attempts the worst of it because he won a round. I didn't hit a wall hard he didn't get hurt he didn't get shaken up there was no other reasons you out. Your reaction except it was comfort catcher what's called what it was. There's only one good thing to pair up there isn't right don't you know. Arctic here from the announcers. How much calculation grown up since we became the other week out you courage and all that other nonsense. Kyle Busch in the same I'll placements out there aren't where I had. There's drivers like it mastered but I'm glad there's drivers like Joseph it would general who won't take any gap. If you look at all of the incidents that jury look I don't ever written all where. Always they end up city back for being raced the way that he was race. I've never seen him be the first one but broke low and administration didn't also. You know are there are times when years raced you know overly harder race very. I'd get there you know been what he's got what eight back when he found and you know it's it's been handed to him when he's got that. But he's also been racing for the win. What he's done that that's a big difference vs Cowboys door slam and I'll or play. And you'd be better door slam over or place but don't whine like our doors slam before lights just my point. You know the big loser and this is part Truex junior. You know has won a rays say it's you know. Our sponsors are Chauncey furniture row and everything they're they're active in any problem is. You know the big learned there was the fact that that we spent all we talked about this and talk left some doubt it's. Horrible horrible aero tight condition. That there's no lower downforce roll is suppose to stop. You're gonna solve them get better racing do you cute then give these guys more power. There's sites spurts think the letters all these are dirty up the aero and let him a lot. Real cars and to leave. We're watching qualifying. You know yesterday. Watson these cars are down you don't so loaded ground before even hit the track. Erred on the side which tortoise greatly and they even put side skirts I'm kept them from being able to check the our. On pit line. Calculus where that term leasing them the Formula One with Predators and that's why we're not getting better racing won't get. While.
