Live Fast Motorsports made it through its first year as a NASCAR Cup Series team and co-owners BJ McLeod and Matt Tifft are calling it a success. Both McLeod and Tifft join the podcast this week to offer their perspectives. First up, McLeod dissects the season and how it was different from putting a car on track in 2020; what being an owner was like on the weekend's he wasn't driving; the biggest takeaway of fielding a full-time Cup Series car; what the measuring stick of success was and how that sets up for 2022; the high of the season; what it's like being a Cup Series driver; being in meetings with NASCAR as an owner; having the car fully sponsored and a presence on social media; putting other drivers in the car; working with Tifft. Tifft reflects on being a team owner in NASCAR; the budget of Live Fast versus other teams; how good it is for Tifft to be involved in racing again; the difference in driver mindset and watching the car; focusing on variables off the racetrack; how Tifft saw success for the team; being in meetings with NASCAR; going from friend to team co-owner with McLeod; if Tifft had fun in 2021.

Danica Patrick Pretty Intense Podcast

Clint Bowyer enjoyed a successful NASCAR career with some of the sport's most prestigious teams, notching 10 NASCAR CUP SERIES victories, as well as the 2008 NASCAR XFINITY SERIES championship, eight Xfinity wins and three NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES victories. Bowyer first made his mark in NASCAR at Richard Childress Racing, competing in 17 NASCAR XFINITY SERIES races in 2004 before campaigning a full season in 2005 and 2006. Bowyer initially caught the eye of Childress during a 2003 ARCA MENARDS SERIES race at Nashville Superspeedway, in which he led 47 laps and finished runner-up. Childress, watching the race from home, offered Bowyer a ride soon thereafter, and the driver left his Kansas car dealership job for North Carolina and the NASCAR XFINITY SERIES. After three Xfinity wins and ending the season second and third in points in 2005 and 2006, respectively, RCR named Bowyer as a fulltime NASCAR CUP SERIES driver in 2006. His first career Cup Series victory came in September 2007 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on his way to a third-place finish in the point standings. Bowyer continued to compete in both series simultaneously for RCR and won the 2008 NASCAR XFINITY SERIES title. While at RCR from 2004-2011, Bowyer posted eight Xfinity Series and five NASCAR CUP SERIES wins. In 2012, Bowyer moved to Michael Waltrip Racing (MWR), where he posted wins at Sonoma Raceway, Richmond Raceway and Charlotte Motor Speedway and finished second in the point standings in his first year. In 2013, Bowyer notched 10 top-five finishes en route to a seventh-place finish in the standings. Bowyer drove for HScott Motorsports in 2016 before joining Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) in 2017 behind the wheel of the coveted No. 14 in the NASCAR CUP SERIES, replacing three-time champ and team co-owner Tony Stewart upon his retirement. On the strength of three runner-up, six top-five and 13 top-10 finishes, Bowyer finished the season 11th, just one spot shy of a berth in the NASCAR Playoffs. His sophomore year at SHR saw Bowyer break through with a win at Martinsville Speedway and a second victory at Michigan International Speedway. Before wheeling 3,400-pound stock cars to Victory Lane on the NASCAR circuit, Bowyer cut his racing teeth on dirt bikes in his home state of Kansas. He began racing motocross in 1985, collecting more than 200 wins and several championships. Bowyer's dedication to the short-track, grassroots racing community is renowned, and it continues with his longtime ownership of the highly successful Bowyer Dirt Motorsports (BDM), which he formed in 2008 after building cars for Stewart's Prelude to the Dream charity dirt Late Model race at Eldora Speedway. Bowyer's Late Model team currently competes on the national stage and won the 2014 Lucas Oil Late Model Series Championship. Bowyer also owns a car dealership, Clint Bowyer Autoplex, in his hometown of Emporia, Kan., where he formerly was employed as a lot attendant, dent specialist and detailer. In 2012, he built the Clint Bowyer Community Building with a donation from The 79 Fund, his charitable fund. As a token of its appreciation, the town of Emporia renamed the street on which the Bowyer family tow business sits as "Hon. Clint Bowyer Boulevard."Clint Bowyer Joined FOX NASCAR full time in 2021 as an analyst for FOX Sports' NASCAR CUP SERIES coverage alongside Jeff Gordon and Mike Joy. In his final season of NASCAR competition in 2020, Bowyer took on an expanded FOX NASCAR broadcasting role as an analyst for multiple NASCAR XFINITY SERIES and NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES races, in addition to FOX Sports' debut season of the eNASCAR iRACING PRO INVITATIONAL SERIES. That expanded TV role came on the heels of duties as a driver analyst for FOX NASCAR's annual "Drivers Only" NASCAR XFINITY SERIES race telecasts and select Xfinity races for several years. Alongside Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano, Bowyer was part of the original "Drivers Only" broadcast crew in 2017.

The world of NASCAR doesn't have anyone else like Bubba Wallace. The 28-year-old is the only Black driver in NASCAR's Cup Series, the highest level of the sport — making Wallace both an athlete and an ambassador, whether he likes it or not. Millions across the country learned his name in 2020 when he emerged as a leading voice for racial justice, successfully lobbying his sport to ban the Confederate flag. But for a name that is familiar to so many, Wallace's story and journey are not as well-known. Ryan McGee interviewed Wallace for E60's special, “Fistful of Steel – The Rise of Bubba Wallace,” which airs tonight at 7:30pm ET on ESPN, and McGee joins ESPN Daily to share his insights on an athlete whose life has become a window into the evolution of his sport, and of America itself.

After a nice discussion on high school sports, we dig into the importance of knowing the NASCAR rule book from inside the pace car and being aware of your surroundings; New Hampshire rain and Kyle Busch's anger; time spent during rain delays; being in the pace vehicle at new venues like Bristol dirt and finding sightlines; how track compounds affect driving the pace car; procedure for the choose rule; post-race duties; if Childress can hear the fans react to big moments; getting to drive new manufacturer cars; getting the field out of the garage in the correct order; a season in review.

Off Track with Carruthers and Bice

Jody Barry has raced in the MotoAmerica Championship since he was a young lad scrapping with his buddies in the KTM RC 390 Cup Series.  Barry won twice in the class and had seven other podium finishes before moving up to the Supersport class in 2017. After finishing 15th in that championship, Barry went a bit AWOL as he focused his efforts on club racing. But that all changed this past season with Barry returning to the podium again in the MotoAmerica Twins Cup Series.  With a win and five podiums, Barry finished the season ranked sixth in the championship and that would have been higher if not for his big crash at Road America. We caught up with Barry for this week's episode of Off Track With Carruthers And Bice to chat with the Illinoian about his racing and his life. Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jbarry_717/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jody.barry.100Support the show (http://motoamerica.com)

With the motorsports season quickly coming to a close, Phil and Josh have plenty to discuss on E86 of the GSP.  The guys start with Max Verstappen's latest dominant performance at the Mexican GP as he gets closer to his first World Driver's Championship and possibly Red Bull's first Constructor's Title since 2013.  Phil and Josh discuss the issues for Mercedes and other key storylines from the midfield. NASCAR finished their 2021 season by crowning three new champions in the national touring series.  Kyle Larson ends one of the most dominant seasons with a 10th victory and his first Cup Series title but it wasn't easy.  At least three of the four championship drivers had a chance during the day.  Daniel Hemric used the last lap, last corner bump-and-run to move Austin Cindric for his first XFinity win and the championship.  Ben Rhodes didn't win the race but definitely won the party after a drunken post-race celebration as he becomes a Truck Series champ in his sixth full season.  The Roundup covers WEC at Bahrain II, Supercars at Sydney II and III, MotoGP and Moto2 at Algarve II along with the Valencia finale, IMSA Petit Le Mans and Kyle Kirkwood signing with AJ Foyt Racing to drive the iconic No. 14.   Phil and Josh preview the Sao Paulo Grand Prix with picks along with what Lewis Hamilton/Mercedes must do to stop the Red Bull tide.  Football/Fantasy Football is discussed along with Josh's Sim Segment before the show close.

On the 2021 season finale, T.J. Majors, Freddie Kraft and Brett Griffin are back from NASCAR Championship Weekend at Phoenix Raceway with plenty to say. Along with co-host Hannah Newhouse, they discuss how each title race played out and chat with two new champions – Xfinity Series winner Daniel Hemric and the Truck Series' Ben Rhodes. Freddie's season with Bubba Wallace faced an early end after a wreck on Lap 8 during Sunday's race. Hear from Freddie about how the No. 23 ended up being collateral damage. Then, the gang starts with the Truck Series championship race and John Hunter Nemechek's defeat. Hear about the No. 4 truck's early mistake, questionable decision making later in the race and what this loss may teach Nemechek. The Cup Series championship ultimately was decided by a late caution that brought all four title contenders down pit road. Should a caution have been called for the debris from David Starr's car? How would have the race played out if it stayed green? What do the guys think about a pit stop ultimately determining the champion? They share their thoughts on how everything unfolded and provide insight on an industry secret concerning lug nuts. Plus, they discuss how Kyle Larson ultimately pulled off the biggest victory of his career. Each series' champion is decided by the season finale each season. Is that the best way to determine who the sport awards the title of champion? The guys debate the idea of a single race championship and propose alternate ideas on how to determine the top team after an entire season. Tony Stewart called Kyle Larson the best race car driver he has ever seen after Larson's dominant season. The guys discuss the impressive list of accomplishments Larson achieved this year to earn that kudos and what it means coming from Stewart. Sunday marked the final race in the Gen 6 car era of the Cup Series. Find out what Denny Hamlin's crew chief Chris Gabehart had to say about the artistry of the sport dying with this car and why it has the guys sad to see it go. NASCAR President Steve Phelps said that fans who prefer a higher horsepower aero package are a “vocal minority” and that the data suggests “we have better racing right now than we've had arguably ever.” Does the crew agree with those bold statements? They dissect his comments and the direction NASCAR is headed in with its on-track product. Ryan Newman raised safety concerns about the Next Gen car at Phoenix and it surfaces a broader concern for the group regarding driver representation in the sport. Hear why they think if the new car is any less safe than the current car, it's unacceptable. Plus, they share why drivers need to have a seat at the table when NASCAR makes big decisions. Next, Daniel Hemric joins the show to talk all about winning his first career NASCAR race and championship all on the same night. Hear about his celebrations from the past few days, his mindset making a Dale Earnhardt-esque move on Austin Cindric at the line, and the bet he helped Bubba Wallace win with Michael Jordan. From one champion to the next, Truck Series' title winner Ben Rhodes joins next. He shares about how he made the right moves to secure the title, what he remembers about his legendary alcohol-influenced post-race press conference, and how getting rid of T.J. as his spotter elevated his performance. In Reaction Theatre, T.J. reveals his 2022 spotting plans, a Fireball challenge is proposed, Hamlin's haters weigh in, and the highlights from one intoxicated press conference are played. Lastly, a surprise to end the season as the inaugural DBC Year End Awards are presented by the boss, Mike Davis. Find out what critically acclaimed honors the gang earned in 2021 as they reflect back on some of the season's best moments.

In the world of NASCAR racing there's always been a game of give and take in the garage. Money is tight, and people need to make ends meet, even if it means cutting some deals. Ronnie Thomas raced in the Winston Cup Series throughout the late 70s and into the late 80s. His career was the ultimate racing catch 22 - he could drive but needed the money to prove it. Thomas details his career, fighting for a chance to make it in the Cup Series by any means necessary. He describes various “off-the-book” encounters with big named NASCAR champions asking for “help” on track in exchange for money thrown his way. It's a story you won't want to miss.

A tripleheader race weekend at Martinsville Speedway set the stage for NASCAR Championship Weekend. Brett Griffin, T.J. Majors, Freddie Kraft, and special guest Jeff Gluck of The Athletic return from Virginia to react to a wild two days of action. They begin by sharing their instant thoughts on how the NASCAR Cup Series race on Sunday unfolded, including debating what served as the spark to the dramatic final 50 laps. T.J. shares the intensity that Brad Keselowski faced throughout the race and especially in the closing laps when he could sniff the win that would earn him a Championship 4 spot. Multiple instances of brake-checking occurred at Martinsville, including between Keselowski and Chase Elliott as they raced for third late in the day. Hear what events led up to the contact that sent the No. 9 car around as the event neared its finish. Then with 5 laps remaining, Alex Bowman spun leader Denny Hamlin as they fought for the top spot. Hear what the gang thinks of Bowman's move, whether it was warranted and what it says about racing with respect. Was it a cheap shot or just hard racing? Then the non-playoff vs playoff driver debate resurfaces and the guys share what they believe has changed in the driver's minds. After taking the checkered flag, Bowman returned to the frontstretch to celebrate where he was met by an angry No. 11 car. The crew reacts to Hamlin's actions on the track, the double-birds he displayed to Bowman and the choice words he had for the winner afterwards. Were his comments justified? Hear what the table thinks and what it means moving forward. Now the Cup Series title race will come down to a battle between Hendrick Motorsports and Joe Gibbs Racing. Is this best for the sport? Who has the upper hand? How will it play out? The gang engages in a lively debate about what to expect in the season finale. Plus, hear their thoughts about if Martinsville could ever host the title race. The Xfinity Series race featured its share of action as its Championship 4 was determined. The always spicy Ty Gibbs had harsh comments for eventual winner Noah Gragson after contact sent the No. 54 car around. Find out what the guys think Gibbs lacks and why it has been impacting his performance throughout the season. A decision to stay out during Saturday night's race placed the slower car of Spencer Boyd right in the middle of the playoff mix. The group doesn't hold back airing their feelings about a car that typically runs in the back being a moving chicane at the front of the field as drivers raced for their seasons. Similar comments are shared when discussing the Truck Series race and how Austin Wayne Self nearly cost John Hunter Nemechek a shot at the championship. Find out whether the guys believe what he said afterwards and how the series has completely lost its respect. Plus, is it time for NASCAR to step in? Before Reaction Theatre, the DBC crew and listeners gets a sneak peek of a brand-new podcast coming soon to Dirty Mo Media. In Reaction Theatre, the fans are fired up after the ending of Sunday's race. Hear what they have to say to Denny Hamlin and then what the gang thinks about Hamlin's more unfiltered approach to life. The crew then makes championship picks for each of the three title races this weekend at Phoenix Raceway.

She may not have been the first, and won't be the last, but she is undoubtedly a pioneer in Motorsports. Former NASCAR racer Shawna Robinson sits down with Dale Earnhardt Jr and co-host Mike Davis for a fascinating conversation. Robinson's start in Motorsports didn't come as most people would predict. It wasn't behind the wheel of a car. It was behind the wheel of a truck. And we're not talking your everyday truck, we're talking about a Big-Rig going up to 160mph. Fresh out of high school, the small-statured Iowa girl got her first chance in competitive racing in one of the largest race vehicles possible. Her father, a man they called Lefty, and her brothers, were a part of a traveling circus of Big Rig Racing and entertainment. It was a series her dad founded and the family promoted. Sliding an 8-thousand pound truck around fairgrounds tracks sprinkled throughout America, people took notice of the young female phenom excelling in a sport full of rough and rowdy men. When the Great American Truck Racing series hit the big tracks, people took notice of Robinson. She became the first female to ever win on a superspeedway, winning at the Milwaukee Mile. Success and an unwavering work ethic created a path to NASCAR. There, Robinson went from the biggest vehicle to racing the compact stock cars of the NASCAR Dash Series. Just three races in, she made history becoming the first woman to win a NASCAR Touring Series race. Her climb to the NASCAR Xfinity Series came with some success, but some heartache as well. She was the fast qualifier at the Xfinity race at Atlanta Motor Speedway in 1994. In that race, she didn't make it around to complete the first lap. She was wrecked. Was it intentional? Other drivers and a commentator told her it was. Shawna shares the story. The ups and downs of racing intersected life and the start of her own family during one phone call. It was her best opportunity yet, but one she had to turn down. She shares the emotion of turning down a ride due to pregnancy. A few years later, Shawna found herself trying to qualify for the 2002 Daytona 500. The Cup Series rookie became the first driver since Janet Guthrie, in 1977, to race her way into the Great American race. Shawna's racing career didn't pan out the way she wanted, but she's someone who will always be remembered. For Dale Earnhardt Jr., she will also be remembered as a woman who stood her ground. The table conversation gets interesting when the two drivers talk about an incident that stemmed from a practice get-together, continued into the race, included a middle-finger and an angry Robinson going to confront Earnhardt in his hauler. Shawna opens up to Dale Jr. and Mike Davis about some of the challenges she faced throughout her career being a female in a male-dominated sport. She also shares her thoughts on the females who have gripped the wheel after her career and what advantages they have in creating opportunities. But her biggest challenge came outside of the racecar. A cancer diagnosis and rigorous chemotherapy and radiation was just another hurdle for her to jump. Shawna discusses the day she found out the news and how she got through it. Before Shawna's arrival, the DJD gang talks about the big moment for Formula One driver Daniel Riccardo getting to drive his father's famed no. 3 car around Austin, Texas' Circuit of the Americas. Dale Jr. reveals just how much the gesture means to him and his family. Dale Jr. breaks some news on this week's podcast, announcing which NASCAR Xfinity Series race he will drive during the 2022 season. AskJr presented by Xfinity was "the funnest" segment of the day. Dale talks about his upcoming NASCAR Next-Gen test at the legendary 1/4-mile Bowman Gray Stadium. He also gives fans a peek behind closed doors of what it is really like inside the NASCAR hauler when you are called to the principal's office. Dale shares some hellacious times during Halloween that were both risky and mischievous. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

The Bojangles Studio is full again as the trio of spotters is back together after race weekend at Kansas Speedway. Freddie Kraft, Brett Griffin and T.J. Majors didn't blow away while in Kansas and are here to cover storylines from the weekend of racing, spanning NASCAR and Formula 1. Windy conditions provided a challenge for NASCAR Cup Series drivers on Sunday. Hear from those who stood on the roof how windy it actually was and the impact it had on the cars throughout the race. As the championship approaches, aggressive driving is on the rise. The spotters describe what they noticed this weekend and why drivers are letting it all hang out. Kyle Busch directed his seemingly weekly frustration on the radio towards Bubba Wallace this week. Wallace's spotter Freddie fills us in on the battle the two Toyota teammates had for 10th and why he doesn't agree with Busch calling out the No. 23 for how they raced each other. Ryan Blaney blamed Austin Dillon for wiping him out late in Sunday's race as Blaney maintained a comfortable playoff standings position. Find out whether the crew agrees with Blaney's assessment of the accident and why playoff drivers feel entitled when racing around non-title contenders. Now heading to Martinsville Speedway for the Round of 8 elimination race, hear who the guys expect to earn the remaining three spots in the Championship 4 and just how close the battle will be. The Cup race at Kansas and the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix in Austin went head-to-head on Sunday afternoon. After much comparison between the two forms of motorsports over the weekend, listen for the table's take on whether or not the events should have run at the same time. Plus, hear their reaction to the culture F1 has created at its events and why it attracted a record-setting crowd. JR Motorsports' Sam Mayer took out playoff contenders Harrison Burton and Mayer's teammate Noah Gragson in Saturday's Xfinity Series race. Mayer, who is not in title contention, expressed remorse afterwards but the guys discuss his actions that ultimately may cost both playoff drivers an opportunity to make the championship race. Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch made comments regarding Cup Series race attendance ahead of Kansas, saying they would like track promoters to do a better job and that recent crowds have been unacceptable. The gang debates whether the drivers are right and what needs to happen to bring more people to the race track. In Reaction Theatre, there's an F1 invasion, a figure skating discussion, news of a spotter swap and why drivers can't race nice anymore. Then, Freddie shares insight after attending the Charlotte ROVAL Next Gen test. Plus, the guys talk if every team that currently owns a charter actually deserves it.

Two racecar drivers from two hard-nosed racing families converge at the big wooden table as Dale Earnhardt Jr. sits down with "The Bent Creek Bandit" Robert Pressley. Where has the former NASCAR driver been? He's still proudly from Asheville but now he serves the people of the popular North Carolina city in a different way, as a County Commissioner. How the hell does a NASCAR driver turn into a politician? And does he even like it? We find out the truth right away. Robert's father Bob Pressley was a legend of the Carolina Short Track scene and his son followed right in his footsteps. And let's just say, the apple didn't fall far from the tree. They were both cut from the cloth of self-made grizzled short trackers that didn't back down from anyone... including each other. Bob Pressley's rivals turned into Roberts and then with the one bump to the back bumper, father and son became the rivalry. Just how intense did it get? Robert gives us the details inside a family feud that helped define their relationship and ultimately bring them closer together. Where the Earnhardt and Pressley family connect is one of the more interesting conversations. Apparently, there was a generational bullying that started with Dale Jr.'s grandfather, short track great Ralph Earnhardt, and continued on through Dale Sr. and Robert. It's a story you have to hear. Robert's start in racing came at the now-defunct New Asheville Motor Speedway, racing against greats like Bosco Lowe and Jack Ingram. It's a place that was very close to Pressley's heart and the reason why Dale Jr. decided to have him on his Peacock TV television show "Lost Speedways." Pressley gives us the inside scoop on the concerns the city of Asheville had before shooting on location at the track, now called Carrier Park, and the community reaction afterward. How did the show also get the truth out there about its closing while closing the book on its biggest controversy, a famed incident between the Pressley's and "The Iron Man" Jack Ingram? Another North Carolina great, Basketball star turned broadcaster Brad Daugherty, got his fingernails dirty as a crew member on Robert Pressley's race team. They traveled around winning races and getting shot at in the process. They even showed up to the racetrack one night with a truck, a couch, a loveseat, and a racecar, and whooped their butts. From Late Models, the second generation driver launched a NASCAR career and soon found success on a myriad of raceways across America. This led to opportunities that he couldn't turn down, but some that left him with regret. From replacing the great Harry Gant, to getting fired at Alliance, to his up and down tenure at Jasper Racing, Pressley tells all. He also explains how one rivalry spelled the end for his first Cup Series ride. Pressley, Dale Jr., and co-host Mike Davis enjoy some laughs talking about racing, fighting, and cheating. Boy, the stories go deep. But none deeper than a surprise moment at the end of the show when Dale and Robert let the cat out of the bag about an incident between them. The story reveals a truth never known until now. Before Pressley arrived, Dale Jr. talks about his work weekend in Las Vegas with his wife Amy. While the trip was nice, they came home to a more hostile Monday. Two dogs fighting and two children not getting along produced a not-so-perfect day in the Earnhardt household. Recent "Behind the Scenes" social media content sparks conversation in the studio about what it was really like filming Lost Speedways. We learn that Leah Vaughn is grossed out by Dale and Matthew kicking the "poop pipe" and if Dillner really did fart on the backstretch during the explore? In AskJr, fan questions spur some incredible insight from Dale Jr, including a fantastic story about his father hopping on the radio to give him live-time insight into how to get around Bristol Motor Speedway.
