Marco Polo, a nonprofit formed by a one-time aide to former President Trump to enable a team to take a deep dive into the laptop that the crack-addled Biden left at a Delaware repair store, claims the report is a road map for local, state, or federal prosecutors to pursue charges. The group also sent its report to each member of Congress. The timing of the report’s release, coming two weeks before the midterm elections, has a certain symmetry to the laptop’s initial introduction to the public. In 2020, days before the election, the New York Post published news of the laptop’s existence, as well as bombshells from it, but social media suppressed the story after the FBI had warned companies of so-called misinformation. This time around, the timing is similar, but other factors are reversed. Legacy outlets have acknowledged that the laptop’s files are authentic, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey admitted that censoring the laptop was a mistake, and the social media platform is being sold to free-speech advocate Elon Musk. The report, which reviewed the laptop’s emails, videos, calendar items, photographs, phone records, financial documents and more, but also provided context and explanation, serves as a “Rosetta Stone of white- and blue-collar crime under the patina of ‘the Delaware Way,’” the report says. “We were able to illuminate previously convoluted network webs of the people leading the charge for global governance,” cutting through shell companies and middlemen.” Crimes Hunter Biden allegedly committed include serving as an agent for foreign entities without disclosing it, tax fraud, and falsifying business documents. The alleged crimes also include prostitution, non-consensual pornography, and distribution of narcotics. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/washington-secrets/voters-agree-gop-to-take-house-senate Voters agree: GOP to take House and Senate Weeks of reporting that the Republicans are poised to take control of the House, and maybe the Senate, have sunk with voters who now mostly agree that the November elections should show Democrats the door. In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, just shared with Secrets, likely voters expect the Republicans to win control of the House. And it’s not even close, with 67% agreeing to 17% who don’t. Even 56% of Democrats expect their party to lose control of the House. As for the Senate, it's closer, with 58% of likely voters believing it’s likely the Republicans will edge out the Democrats. Just 25% don’t agree. Among Democrats, the split is even, 42% agree and 42% don’t. Much of the media have recently raised expectations that the House will turn red by 10-40 seats. There has been some reporting of tightening Senate races that could give the Republicans a 1-2 seat edge after the elections are over on Nov. 8. The survey also quizzed likely voters on if they plan to cast ballots early or on Election Day. Most, by a 53%-44% margin, chose Election Day, though that was mostly a GOP preference as with past elections. https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2022/10/20/former-fbi-official-will-testify-about-white-house-pressure-to-inflate-domestic-extremism-numbers-n1638595 Former FBI Official Will Testify About White House Pressure to Inflate Domestic Extremism Numbers Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee announced on Thursday that they would be calling a former top FBI official to testify before Congress to address claims that the Biden administration pressured agents to label cases as domestic extremism or a white supremacist threat even if they did not meet that criteria in order to match Joe Biden’s rhetoric. Last month, current and former FBI agents came forward claiming the Biden administration has been deliberately exaggerating the danger posed by white supremacists. According to the whistleblowers, high-ranking FBI officials were pressuring field agents to fabricate domestic terrorism cases and label people as white supremacists in order to “meet internal metrics.” “The demand for white supremacy” coming from FBI brass “vastly outstrips the supply of white supremacy,” one agent told the Washington Times. “We have more people assigned to investigate white supremacists than we can actually find.” On December 2, members of the House Judiciary Committee will interview Jill Sanborn, a former assistant director of the FBI Counterterrorism Division and executive assistant director of its National Security Branch, who has been accused of pressuring agents to reclassify cases per the White House’s requests. The FBI claims it only investigates those “who commit or intend to commit violence and criminal activity that constitutes a federal crime or poses a threat to national security” and that it does not target individuals or organizations based on their political beliefs. Last year, the administration previously came under fire for using the resources of the Department of Justice to target angry parents at school board meetings and treat them like domestic terrorists. Merrick Garland authorized the FBI to investigate parents who protested school board meetings alleging a “disturbing trend” of teachers being threatened or harassed. However, PJ Media’s Megan Fox looked into those allegations and concluded that they’re mostly bunk. https://thepoliticalinsider.com/arizona-refuses-to-comply-with-biden-demand-to-remove-makeshift-border-wall/ Arizona Refuses to Comply With Biden Demand to Remove Makeshift Border Wall Arizona’s Department of Emergency and Military Affairs is refusing a demand by the Biden administration to remove the shipping containers they are using to close gaps in the wall at the southern border. A letter written to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and signed by Allen Clark, Director of Arizona’s DEMA, states “the containers will remain in place until specific details regarding construction are provided.” Clark goes on to argue that the residents of Arizona “cannot rely on the federal government to ensure its security.” “The myriad of federal agencies that claim jurisdiction on the southern border but do nothing to prevent the public nuisance caused by illegal immigration and criminal activity that exploits the open border is quite frustrating to those that live, work and recreate on that border and in our state,” he added. The letter comes in response to a demand by the Biden administration to remove the shipping containers that are predominantly being used to seal up gaps in the border wall near Yuma. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation penned its own letter last week claiming Arizona’s shipping containers are trespassing on its lands and those of the Cocopah Indian Tribe’s West Reservation. The Bureau indicates contracts have been awarded to close the gaps in question and they ‘anticipate’ awarding more. As such, they insisted the containers be removed so the project can continue “without unnecessary delay.” Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey issued an executive order to seal up gaps in the border wall in August. Meaning the White House had no less than 18 months to get those contracts awarded and pushed out to start construction. The shipping containers stand 22 feet high, are welded together, and feature an additional four feet of razor wiring added to the top. Ducey’s reasoning behind installing the containers includes the Biden administration’s “lack of urgency on border security,” which he labeled a “dereliction of duty.” Armored Republic The Mission of Armored Republic is to Honor Christ by equipping Free Men with Tools of Liberty necessary to preserve God-given rights.

During the South Point 400, Larson had a strong run going into turn 3 and he dove to the inside of both Kevin Harvick and Bubba Wallace. Harvick got out of the gas and let Larson and Wallace race for the position. As they continued into turn four, Larson got loose and began to chase his car up the track inching ever close to Wallace. However, he never made contact with Wallace. Coming off the turn, Wallace slammed into the outside wall hard, bounced off it and down into Larson. Larson dove to the inside of the track to avoid Wallace. Wallace believing Larson had wronged him by chasing his car up the track chased him down the track and ran into his right rear quarter panel sending both cars spinning up the track. Larson would make contact with Christopher Bell before making contact with the wall. Wallace would smash nose first into the outside wall. NASCAR.com reports Wallace violated “Sections 4.3A and 4.4 C & E of the NASCAR Member Code of Conduct laid out in the NASCAR Rule Book. Rule 4.4.C lists “intentionally wrecking or spinning another vehicle, whether or not that vehicle is removed from Competition as a result’ as one of five member actions that could result in a penalty.” As noted above, NASCAR chose to suspend Wallace one race. NASCAR’s Chief Operating Officer Steve O’Donnell appeared on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio to explain the decision. https://twitter.com/i/status/1582488669625077762 - Play Video - 0:00-1:38 https://www.boundingintosports.com/2022/10/nhl-embraces-anti-white-racism-says-they-have-too-many-white-employees-aims-to-change-that/ NHL Embraces Anti-White Racism, Says They Have Too Many White Employees, Aims To Change That The National Hockey League (NHL) released a workforce demographic study as part of a report on “Accelerating Diversity & Inclusion” that claims the organization’s teams are too white and the league plans to make changes to reduce the percentage of white people that work for them. Introducing the report, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman made clear the organization’s goals saying, “Our belief is stronger than ever that hockey has a powerful platform to build character, teach life skills, and support our society and our communities.” As part of one of their initiatives to promote diversity and inclusion, the report notes, “The NHL developed a new, best-in-class Workforce Demographic Study to understand the diversity of full-time League and Club employees and accelerate inclusive hiring.” This Workforce Demographic Study was also highlighted as one of the NHL’s 7 Dimensions, specifically under their Employment section. This section specifically notes the NHL is engaging in racist activities, “Data from the survey will help guide future decision-making about our workforce. In late 2021, the NHL hired a full-time Director of Recruiting who is focused on attracting diverse talent to the organization. Additionally, the League engaged Jopwell with the intent of creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace by expanding our talent pool through Jopwell’s network of Black, Latinx, and Native American professionals.” The report further notes they will be excluding white people from a mentorship program, “Clubs are also taking action: 22 Clubs have launched or are about to launch a mentorship/fellowship/hiring program to develop BIPOC and female talent to work in the organization’s Hockey Operations or front office roles.”

Marco Polo, a nonprofit formed by a one-time aide to former President Trump to enable a team to take a deep dive into the laptop that the crack-addled Biden left at a Delaware repair store, claims the report is a road map for local, state, or federal prosecutors to pursue charges. The group also sent its report to each member of Congress. The timing of the report’s release, coming two weeks before the midterm elections, has a certain symmetry to the laptop’s initial introduction to the public. In 2020, days before the election, the New York Post published news of the laptop’s existence, as well as bombshells from it, but social media suppressed the story after the FBI had warned companies of so-called misinformation.

In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, just shared with Secrets, likely voters expect the Republicans to win control of the House. And it’s not even close, with 67% agreeing to 17% who don’t. Even 56% of Democrats expect their party to lose control of the House. As for the Senate, it's closer, with 58% of likely voters believing it’s likely the Republicans will edge out the Democrats. Just 25% don’t agree. Among Democrats, the split is even, 42% agree and 42% don’t. Much of the media have recently raised expectations that the House will turn red by 10-40 seats. There has been some reporting of tightening Senate races that could give the Republicans a 1-2 seat edge after the elections are over on Nov. 8. The survey also quizzed likely voters on if they plan to cast ballots early or on Election Day. Most, by a 53%-44% margin, chose Election Day, though that was mostly a GOP preference as with past elections. https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2022/10/20/former-fbi-official-will-testify-about-white-house-pressure-to-inflate-domestic-extremism-numbers-n1638595 Former FBI Official Will Testify About White House Pressure to Inflate Domestic Extremism Numbers Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee announced on Thursday that they would be calling a former top FBI official to testify before Congress to address claims that the Biden administration pressured agents to label cases as domestic extremism or a white supremacist threat even if they did not meet that criteria in order to match Joe Biden’s rhetoric. Last month, current and former FBI agents came forward claiming the Biden administration has been deliberately exaggerating the danger posed by white supremacists. According to the whistleblowers, high-ranking FBI officials were pressuring field agents to fabricate domestic terrorism cases and label people as white supremacists in order to “meet internal metrics.” “The demand for white supremacy” coming from FBI brass “vastly outstrips the supply of white supremacy,” one agent told the Washington Times. “We have more people assigned to investigate white supremacists than we can actually find.” On December 2, members of the House Judiciary Committee will interview Jill Sanborn, a former assistant director of the FBI Counterterrorism Division and executive assistant director of its National Security Branch, who has been accused of pressuring agents to reclassify cases per the White House’s requests. The FBI claims it only investigates those “who commit or intend to commit violence and criminal activity that constitutes a federal crime or poses a threat to national security” and that it does not target individuals or organizations based on their political beliefs. Last year, the administration previously came under fire for using the resources of the Department of Justice to target angry parents at school board meetings and treat them like domestic terrorists. Merrick Garland authorized the FBI to investigate parents who protested school board meetings alleging a “disturbing trend” of teachers being threatened or harassed. However, PJ Media’s Megan Fox looked into those allegations and concluded that they’re mostly bunk. https://thepoliticalinsider.com/arizona-refuses-to-comply-with-biden-demand-to-remove-makeshift-border-wall/ Arizona Refuses to Comply With Biden Demand to Remove Makeshift Border Wall Arizona’s Department of Emergency and Military Affairs is refusing a demand by the Biden administration to remove the shipping containers they are using to close gaps in the wall at the southern border. A letter written to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and signed by Allen Clark, Director of Arizona’s DEMA, states “the containers will remain in place until specific details regarding construction are provided.” Clark goes on to argue that the residents of Arizona “cannot rely on the federal government to ensure its security.” “The myriad of federal agencies that claim jurisdiction on the southern border but do nothing to prevent the public nuisance caused by illegal immigration and criminal activity that exploits the open border is quite frustrating to those that live, work and recreate on that border and in our state,” he added. The letter comes in response to a demand by the Biden administration to remove the shipping containers that are predominantly being used to seal up gaps in the border wall near Yuma. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation penned its own letter last week claiming Arizona’s shipping containers are trespassing on its lands and those of the Cocopah Indian Tribe’s West Reservation. The Bureau indicates contracts have been awarded to close the gaps in question and they ‘anticipate’ awarding more. As such, they insisted the containers be removed so the project can continue “without unnecessary delay.” Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey issued an executive order to seal up gaps in the border wall in August. Meaning the White House had no less than 18 months to get those contracts awarded and pushed out to start construction. The shipping containers stand 22 feet high, are welded together, and feature an additional four feet of razor wiring added to the top. Ducey’s reasoning behind installing the containers includes the Biden administration’s “lack of urgency on border security,” which he labeled a “dereliction of duty.” Armored Republic The Mission of Armored Republic is to Honor Christ by equipping Free Men with Tools of Liberty necessary to preserve God-given rights.

During the South Point 400, Larson had a strong run going into turn 3 and he dove to the inside of both Kevin Harvick and Bubba Wallace. Harvick got out of the gas and let Larson and Wallace race for the position. As they continued into turn four, Larson got loose and began to chase his car up the track inching ever close to Wallace. However, he never made contact with Wallace. Coming off the turn, Wallace slammed into the outside wall hard, bounced off it and down into Larson. Larson dove to the inside of the track to avoid Wallace. Wallace believing Larson had wronged him by chasing his car up the track chased him down the track and ran into his right rear quarter panel sending both cars spinning up the track. Larson would make contact with Christopher Bell before making contact with the wall. Wallace would smash nose first into the outside wall. NASCAR.com reports Wallace violated “Sections 4.3A and 4.4 C & E of the NASCAR Member Code of Conduct laid out in the NASCAR Rule Book. Rule 4.4.C lists “intentionally wrecking or spinning another vehicle, whether or not that vehicle is removed from Competition as a result’ as one of five member actions that could result in a penalty.” As noted above, NASCAR chose to suspend Wallace one race. NASCAR’s Chief Operating Officer Steve O’Donnell appeared on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio to explain the decision. https://twitter.com/i/status/1582488669625077762 - Play Video - 0:00-1:38 https://www.boundingintosports.com/2022/10/nhl-embraces-anti-white-racism-says-they-have-too-many-white-employees-aims-to-change-that/ NHL Embraces Anti-White Racism, Says They Have Too Many White Employees, Aims To Change That The National Hockey League (NHL) released a workforce demographic study as part of a report on “Accelerating Diversity & Inclusion” that claims the organization’s teams are too white and the league plans to make changes to reduce the percentage of white people that work for them. Introducing the report, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman made clear the organization’s goals saying, “Our belief is stronger than ever that hockey has a powerful platform to build character, teach life skills, and support our society and our communities.” As part of one of their initiatives to promote diversity and inclusion, the report notes, “The NHL developed a new, best-in-class Workforce Demographic Study to understand the diversity of full-time League and Club employees and accelerate inclusive hiring.” This Workforce Demographic Study was also highlighted as one of the NHL’s 7 Dimensions, specifically under their Employment section. This section specifically notes the NHL is engaging in racist activities, “Data from the survey will help guide future decision-making about our workforce. In late 2021, the NHL hired a full-time Director of Recruiting who is focused on attracting diverse talent to the organization. Additionally, the League engaged Jopwell with the intent of creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace by expanding our talent pool through Jopwell’s network of Black, Latinx, and Native American professionals.” The report further notes they will be excluding white people from a mentorship program, “Clubs are also taking action: 22 Clubs have launched or are about to launch a mentorship/fellowship/hiring program to develop BIPOC and female talent to work in the organization’s Hockey Operations or front office roles.”

The Door Bump Clear crew is back from Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL weekend after two playoff cutoff races. Brett Griffin, T.J. Majors and Freddie Kraft talk about the difficulty drivers had passing on Sunday, the drivers safety meeting with NASCAR, the DBC trackside live show on Saturday, and fellow podcast host Conor Daly's Cup debut. First in Spot On, Spot Off, the guys discuss NASCAR throwing a caution for a sign on the track late in the race. Brett expresses his displeasure for NASCAR allowing signage like that on the track and explains why game seven moments shouldn't be decided like this. Chase Elliott and AJ Allmendinger lote the lead on the second-to-last restart costing them both the win. The guys applaud both drivers' aggressive moves but question if Allmendinger should have raced Elliott cleaner because he's a playoff driver. Next, Cole Custer threw a block down the backstretch allowing teammate Chase Briscoe to gain positions on the final lap. They explain why Briscoe was going to make an aggressive move either way and react to NASCAR investigating if Custer's block was intentionally helping him. William Byron's penalty for spinning Denny Hamlin out under caution during the Texas race was reversed. The spotters explain how the appeal process works and why the hearing should have taken place sooner. Plus, hear how it ultimately impacted the Round of 12 playoff elimiations. NASCAR president, Steve Phelps, said penalizing Kevin Harvick was not punitive after his outspoken comments about the Next Gen car. The guys explain why NASCAR needs to be more transparent about their random inspection picking process. Plus, they share insight about what changes could be made for next year to the back of the car and how industry members need to be more appreciated by the sanctioning body. Finally, NASCAR responds to teams asking for a fairer profit split by proposing a small increase in revenue but also dramatic cost-cutting measures. Brett explains how large the TV contract affects the sport's revenue and discusses the decrease in drivers' base salaries over the past 10 years. In Reaction Theatre, fans call in about the Xfinity Series driver aggression, Kyle Larson getting eliminated from the playoffs and the caution caused by the sign. The guys make their Championship 4 predictions later in the show. Plus, a special Cup Series driver guest calls in and tells us which fan base is his favorite and who he thinks makes it to Phoenix.

In our conversation with NASCAR Hall of Famer Mark Martin, Mark talks about his memories of the construction of his beloved JR51 chassis, preparations for the first Winston Cup race at Las Vegas and his laser-focused intensity that … in all honesty … took away from his enjoyment of winning races. He also remembers Ford's dominance that day and the reaction of both General Motors AND NASCAR, as well as some of the rocky moments from early in his racing career.Hosts Rick Houston and Steve Waid then take a deep dive into the March 5, 1998 issue of Winston Cup Scene. Mark Martin wins the inaugural Winston Cup race at Las Vegas and appears on the cover of this issue with Wayne Newton and … much to his chagrin, apparently ... a couple of Las Vegas showgirls. Fords DOMINATE the race … much to Dale Earnhardt and General Motors' CHAGRIN.News items detail an autograph session that nearly got out of hand, Kyle Petty's motorcycle accident on the way to the race, NASCAR's banning of burnouts and Kevin Harvick's first Winston WEST win.

On this week's episode of the Dale Jr. Download, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and co-host Mike Davis catch up with one of his longtime competitors from the NASCAR Cup scene, Washington's Greg Biffle. After a successful career in NASCAR that spanned nearly two decades, Biffle quietly exited the sport following the 2016 season. Biffle originally hails from Vancouver, Washington, where he spent his formative years working in an automotive machine shop that was owned by his father's friend. As he became a teenager, Greg discovered his love for driving and going fast and it wasn't long before he found trouble behind the wheel. In an effort to focus his need for speed into something productive, his father Jack suggested they attend the local Friday night street stock races at Portland Speedway. After their first outing, Greg was hooked and immediately purchased a 1974 Ford Torino to convert into a racecar.  Upon building his second street stock, Biffle began to have success at the track and along with it began getting noticed for his fabrication skills. This attention grew into a chassis fabrication business, and Greg went on to build over 50 race cars over the next few years. He also used his earnings to go late model racing and found victory lane many times at both Portland and Tri-City Raceway.  The story of how Greg got into NASCAR came when he decided to take the show on the road: heading south to Tucson, Arizona to participate in the NASCAR Winter Heat Series. It was there that he met and befriended NASCAR Hall of Famer Benny Parsons, who was impressed with the unknown racer's performance. As the story goes, weeks later Parsons was conversing with Jack Roush in the garage area at Michigan International Speedway about Roush's NASCAR Truck team. Parsons recommended Biffle to Roush, and soon after he received a call from Geoff Smith, who was president of Roush Racing at the time. After a lengthy chat, a contract was faxed over to Greg and the next two decades of his racing career were in motion. Greg and Dale speak on the decline of Roush Racing and the factors that led to the team getting behind the competition. Greg explains that the team failed to progress with the direction of the sport and that it took them a long time to catch up once they were behind. The lack of winning equipment ultimately played a role in Greg leaving Cup racing in 2016, which he explains was a year earlier than his contract stated.  The interview also touches on some of Greg's rivalries over the years and the stories behind them. Greg details his dust-up with Jay Sauter at Richmond and the monetary fine and points penalty that fell on him because of it. As a result, when he and Kevin Harvick made contact at Bristol a year later in 2002, he knew he wanted to avoid a fight at all costs. They also discuss his famous feud with Boris Said at Watkins Glen in 2011, and how a perfectly thrown water bottle exploded into a huge blow-out.  Since leaving racing in 2016, Greg has made use of his time by owning and operating a rock quarry as well as a humane shelter. He spends a lot of time outdoors fishing and boating. He has also made time for some racing, including his successful return to the Truck Series for Kyle Busch Motorsports in 2019 and running in the 24 Hours of Lemons. While he still loves auto racing, he has learned to enjoy his weekends off and these days Greg Biffle is making the most of life.     DIRTY AIR Before Greg joins the show, Dale, Mike, Alex and Hannah discuss: North Wilkesboro to host the 2023 NASCAR All-Star Race.  Dale blowing the lid off of NASCAR's silly season The future of Kyle Busch, KBM, and Tyler Reddick Bubba's big win in Kansas   ASKJR presented by Xfinity This week the fans asked questions about: Other track revivals Bristol walk-out songs What makes Bristol so exciting Live reactions to the Kyle Busch announcement To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

It's winner's week on Door Bumper Clear as Freddie Kraft celebrates Bubba Wallace's victory at Kansas Speedway with Brett Griffin, T.J. Majors, and Xfinity Series race winner Noah Gragson joins the show. They discuss Noah's fifth win of the year, a prank war with former crew chief Dave Elenz, working with crew chief Luke Lambert, moving to the Cup Series next year, his not always so serious approach off the track and how he started racing. Freddie talks us through how Wallace came alive late in the race to take a commanding victory and shares what happened at the after party. Plus, hear how TJ nearly messed everything up. To begin Spot On, Spot Off, the Xfinity Series race restarted with two laps to go in Stage 2 despite reports of rain. The guys debate if the track conditions were safe to make it to halfway and talk about a certain spotter and driver that didn't want it to see go green. Next, the guys discuss the 15 points separating 10th through 15th place in the playoff standings heading into the Bristol Motor Speedway cutoff race. Find out if they think another non-playoff driver can win and how aggressively drivers below the cutoff line need to race. Gragson shares his input on how he expects Bristol to race with the new car and how aggressive playoff drivers might be. Kyle Busch reportedly signed with Richard Childress Racing for next season. The crew applauds RCR's signing, questions the future of Kyle Busch Motorsports, and theorizes where Tyler Reddick will race next year. Then, the gang talks about North Wilkesboro Speedway hosting the All-Star race in 2023. They predict how quickly the race will sell out and discuss FOX wanting the race's location to rotate. Plus, Brett shares his insight on when the 2023 schedule will be released and what tracks could be losing races. Kevin Harvick sounded off on drivers safety concerns with the Next Gen car at Kansas. Gragson explains why he applauds Harvick being outspoken, details crashes he's had in the car this season, and talks about how his concerns about wrecking are impacting his performance. In Reaction Theatre, fans call in to congratulate Bubba and Freddie, ask Noah about his run in with Jeb Burton, and one fan plays a song for Bubba's haters.  Thank you to our presenting sponsor Offerpad and partners Xfinity and RacingUSA.com for making this show possible.   To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

On today's episode of the Dale Jr. Download, we have a special bonus episode live from North Wilkesboro Speedway. On Tuesday, August 30th, Dale Jr. hosted a Q&A session with 6 late model drivers.  Brenden Queen (2:46) Bobby McCarty (11:47) Connor Hall (20:44) Brian Obiedzenski (30:43) Chad McCumbee (40:08) Landon Huffman (52:28) Brenden Queen hails from the Virginia Beach area. You can catch him racing weekly at Langley Speedway driving the #03 car with Mario characters painted all over it. Dale and Brenden discussed the car and its unique font style, making Brenden a favorite amongst the younger generation of race fans. They also discussed his famous nickname “Butterbean.” Bobby McCarty is just 29 years old but considers himself the old guy on the CARS tour. Before hopping on stage with Dale Jr., Bobby was hard at work making sure his car was ready for practice, showing the true grassroots of the CARS tour. Bobby attempted to qualify for his first Xfinity Series race earlier this year in New Hampshire. He talked about how that deal came about and what future plans he might have to try the series again. Connor Hall is Elliott Sadler's favorite race car driver. The multiple-time Cup series winner and former JR Motorsports driver has high praise for Connor and believes his talent is real. Dale Jr and Connor talked about Connor's knack for finding sponsors, his journey from a small family team to racing for Chad Bryant, and how to make it all work on a small family-sized budget.  Brian Obiedzenski may have a difficult name to pronounce, but his personality is hard to forget. Dale and Brian first connected over Twitter DMing back and forth about car parts. Brian is a limited late model driver, but by trade, he's been a Cadillac service technician for 20 years. Dale and Brian shared stories from their days as service techs and talked about why Brian uses the #29 because of Kevin Harvick. Chad McCumbee is possibly one of the more interesting stories on the CARS Tour. Not only did Chad portray Dale Jr. in the ESPN movie “3”. But Chad drove cars as a stunt driver in the film “Talladega Nights.” That's right Chad McCumbee was the real-life Ricky Bobby and Cal Naughton Jr. In addition, Chad talked about his transition to an ownership role in Sports Car on the IMSA circuit and how his journey through the ranks have NASCAR has prepared him to be an owner. Landon Huffman's content game is second to none in asphalt racing. The third-generation driver has the personality to stand out and attract fans and sponsors like no other. Maybe that's the reason Dale Jr. approached Landon to sponsor his Limited Late Model with High Rock Vodka colors. The two talked about how that deal came together, plus Landon's impending track championship at Hickory Motor Speedway.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

At the end of the 2007 NASCAR Cup season, Michael “Fatback” McSwain suddenly departed from the garage scene, leaving a void once filled by one of the most colorful personalities in the modern stock car era. On this week's Dale Jr. Download, McSwain joins Dale Earnhardt Jr. and co-host Mike Davis to discuss the decision to leave the sport, as well as the path he traveled to get to the top. Coming from the humble home of a phone company worker, McSwain did not grow from racing roots. After graduating from high school with no real direction, he decided to travel to Nashville to attend a diesel mechanic's college. It was during this time that he became familiar with racing and upon returning back to North Carolina, he wanted to give it a shot himself. He and his father built a demolition derby car for the Cleveland County Fair, and had so much fun in the process that they embarked on six-cylinder racing at Cherokee Speedway. But the further they got into the racing, the more expensive it got, and soon McSwain was left to find solutions to subsidize his own on-track endeavors. He began working on other people's race cars, ultimately finding a spot in the Robert Gee garage where a local racer was working on a NASCAR Sportsman Division ride. McSwain explained that working under Gee was very influential and taught him a lot in a short amount of time. It also helped him realize that he wanted to work in auto racing full-time. McSwain recalled driving to many different race shops and turning in applications before finally getting a call from Lake Speed's racing operation to come and work as a fabricator. This would be his first experience working on a Cup car, and over the next few seasons he would bounce from operation to operation, spending time working under legends such as Harry Hyde and Cale Yarborough before finally ending up with Ricky Rudd at Rudd Racing Enterprises. In 2000, Rudd inked a deal to race with Yates Racing, and McSwain assumed he was once again on the job hunt. However, a few days before his honeymoon he received a call of a lifetime from Robert Yates offering him the crew chief position. McSwain explains he cut his honeymoon a few days short because he was excited to get to work in a real, full-time race shop.  The Rudd/McSwain duo delivered “Fatback'' his first Cup victory in June 2001 at Pocono Raceway. McSwain shares a story of how the car came together after a mad scramble the week of the race, and the result was a completely dominant performance. He also shares a hilarious encounter with Kevin Harvick during the waning laps of the September Richmond race that same season, a situation that may have landed him in serious hot water had it come to fruition. When the decision was made to release Rudd and bring in Elliott Sadler, McSwain jumped ship and headed to Joe Gibbs Racing to man the pit box for Bobby Labonte. All was far from well though, and rising turmoil amongst the team would leave McSwain without a job. The conversation deals a lot with driver/crew chief relationships and dialogue, and McSwain offers up stories of disagreements he had with Rudd and Bobby Labonte over the years. He explains that driver attitudes over the radio during a race can affect a whole team, and when the situation reached a breaking point he felt inclined to intervene. Finally, the interview covers McSwain's seemingly abrupt departure from the NASCAR garage scene following the 2007 season. He explains that having growing children at home influenced his decision, but now that they're older he is open to a return to the racing world.

Door Bumper Clear is back from a weekend at Richmond Raceway. Brett Griffin, T.J. Majors and Freddie Kraft start out by talking about Freddie's 40th birthday celebration the previous night. Then, they discuss why the two-round qualifying format needs to be changed. Plus, the crew tries to decipher Freddie's show notes he wrote at 5:00 am. In Spot On, Spot Off, the guys discuss Kyle Busch running Ty Gibbs up the track then Gibbs repaying the favor while battling for 15th in Stage 2. They question if Busch should be racing Gibbs that aggressively and what it says that Gibbs didn't back down from the challenge. Kyle Busch got tagged by Ross Chastain in Turns 3 and 4 and said in a post-race interview that he was Chastain's victim this week. The gang explains why Chastain has consistently been one of the fastest cars every week and debates whether or not other drivers will make his championship run easy. Next, they discuss how the Next Gen car has raced at short tracks this year. The spotters debate the quality of Richmond's racing and whether or not the track deserves two Cup Series races. Then, Kyle Busch was asked if there is a strategy to get Martin Truex Jr. in the playoffs and compared the question to the 2013 Michael Waltrip Racing scandal. Brett discusses if team orders are allowed and references the Richmond race when Clint Bowyer questionably spun late. Hear Bowyer's former spotter explain details about what forced NASCAR to drop the penalty hammer on MWR. Then, the guys debate if Denny Hamlin would help Truex Jr. or Bubba Wallace win to get into the playoffs at Daytona. Carson Hocevar wrecked Nick Leitz during the Truck Series race at Richmond and has now caused two wrecks in two playoff races. The spotters explain why Hocevar potentially wrecked him to stay on the lead lap and if he should be penalized. Asking prices for charters have reached $20 million according to Adam Stern. Brett explains how teams are gaining equity from the charter system, what teams are in the market for one, and why NASCAR needs to invest more in the lower series. In Reaction Theatre, fans express their thoughts on whether or not Richmond was an entertaining race, Kevin Harvick going for back-to-back wins, and a lullaby for Sunday's race.
