Thu, 26 Aug 2010|
In dot com. Well -- obviously a huge week for Kyle bush and first -- -- Last week you said he was gonna win Bristol now. We didn't know he was gonna win the truck beat the nationwide and they'd be a Sprint Cup race there. Well he's already knocking on the door he almost did it last year and won't put up tell it to go out and win three different races in three of the top series the NASCAR. You've got to have an awful lot of lot just given a must be doing an awful lot of praying that occupy. Because he could've easily been wrecked when he got hit by -- Brad Kozlowski in a nationwide which is the biggest story of the weekend. And not to be able to it to come through and and still win that race it's huge it's huge feat. I got it again and they said it all week well. They got anybody can probably. Reproduce that are doing against terror but he might do it again this year. -- with totally amazing when you talk about the Kozlowski -- What what do you think and when when you're looking at this. Well first all you know everybody all the sudden started poor Brett or Brad. But they forget why this is going on there's a reason that he's had problems with Denny Hamlin their their reason -- had problem with Carl Edwards didn't read any problem goblet. These all these guys aren't -- ganging up audience but that's all we want we mean these guys that tussle in all but the deal is his. As a driver you're in this cockpit you cannot see your Randy relied on his spotter. And the next thing you know somebody you know even even though how got a little loose it doesn't give a guy. The right to running until HR and -- in in the truth then it was probably accident. But he hit eight so power than his car he gets hit the spotter says they've made bread just try direct yet have to have blood. -- -- and and Rex multi purpose and this thing is his -- probably would have passed him and won a race anyway. Didn't need directing god and so that's the argument there rise Megan why did he have to do that. Because because they needed any -- and in their egos so instead of -- Just. Rolen win it now he's got to make announcements on PA you know bad map and do you work on the track and and you have more fans. It depends on than a team high gas up off our right well -- know we're going to suck suck. And can be sometimes right. Next next isn't he said Chris Miller. -- -- Andy don't really well -- on those postcard you know the a lion Tamer I think. Are so be it next season's schedule comes out for the Sprint Cup Series a few changes. You got Atlanta losing the spring race is going to Kentucky. California Speedway loses a race now when -- Candace. And then in the first race of the year in the are the first race and he. Chase is no longer Chicago land in New Hampshire goes back or in image Catalanotto -- goes back to number two yeah. The only thing I don't like about it is is Chicago. In New Hampshire are are close that the same kind of tracks so. Neither one of them bring in the real excitement that he would want going into the chase but I think the change is good I think the overall schedule changes good. I really think -- need to cut back to one race at almost all these tracks other than a place like Daytona and Bristol. May be Indy or something like that but I think it changes are really good overall it's great to see. Kansas come into the fold negate. Their race. And conducted -- Kentucky get there thinking of the kitten a second race. And again you got California was really hurting yeah so it was great to take one away you gotta appreciate Elena. But later we'll do much better with their one race more people fill the stands for that one rates than -- so all the changes look good and I'm really glad NASCAR was able to get it done. Get altering series out schedule out now it also helps people like me and everybody trying to get sponsorship in and to get things in place for next year now but you never know never done soon enough. Yeah well there's no doubt and I mean when you talk about sponsorship and they kind of the economics of everything. If you look at what happens is happening with the Nationwide Series they are cutting purses now by 20%. You all seen it or start and parks -- -- that Izzy well. Here's the deal that the truck series you know if you if you start the truck series and market you're looking at maybe get a nine to 101000 done well. In the nationwide -- didn't somewhere between 121416. Down depends where you -- so it's gonna bring it down to almost that level. I think it's at its gonna put a lot of start Parker's park for did. Wow well a huge job good news story is obviously Brian Vickers cleared to race once again. He was suffering from blood clots -- heart surgery and back what does this mean for him. Well it means he's still got a life yeah it. He was coming along with -- red believe with them from the beginning he won a race last year he sat -- polls he's a really good driver he developed fast. And I'm I'm very happy to hear that news that's the best -- up aren't allowed -- because that to have your career end on situation like that is is a tough deal. So it'll be exciting to see him back next year and admit it puts a lot of pressure on Red Bull now with Kasey Kahne coming in the poll do. Yeah -- what does that what does that mean is it is Scott Speed now I think he's out yeah. It you know he's he's 47 points right now. You know he needs to do better it's his second really almost third year in the race and if you don't get it done. You're not gonna hang around. And the neat thing about Red Bull is rebel those those teams who so they have a lot of money and they can dictate and that they have that they -- to really where about make anybody happy. Well good for Brian Vickers haven't seen him back Sprint Cup Series is off this weekend -- backs so we got -- -- to talk about. Well there's racing next week well ones from comes on the beltway. We -- -- -- tell I don't let -- nationwide and the truck race at Bristol were much better than the cup race anyway yeah those kind of -- the best races coming up at Richmond anyway. All right I don't not at all if. When did you check out season Washington dot com.
