Off vessel great later this year and they're gonna have a presence there's that was real neat. I had a chance talked to Daniel on Wednesday then Thursday was down at the Seneca creek casino. And Kevin Harvick rolled into town. Now almost didn't make it thanks to the rain they'll forcefully Kevin. They don't they're a flight to buffalo of course but with all the the monsoons he had their Thursday morning I did dump what over two inches or rain on us. Dick she had to fly into Rochester and then now Harvick in bed the folks he was with drove from Rochester to buffalo. I actually went to new -- first into the new aero but headquarters there in Delaware avenue. But Kevin toured the facility signed some autograph there Kevin as a partner. With the folks new air or not only for him personally with NASCAR for their half the stuff but also. Kevin Harvick incorporated which used to be is truck team of course now is like a sports managing business and some of the athletes and professionals that they were present. They also decent ties tight ends with our new air as well so Kevin has a great relationship of the folks in new air up so he was down their first over and Delaware. And the original plan was for him to drive his race car from new aero to the casino but it fortunately. With the reigning in the condition the roads won't worry in order. Were in and everything in just so obviously some of the city's resources were were that may give. Didn't used to have to help put on this you know they're out take care of some urgent issues because of the rain. On dead Depp playing that's scrapped and fortunately in and said latest Kevin just took our a regular car over to the casino but he did the casino. Anita VIP meet and greet there was some folks from. That the casino. Of the local Anheuser-Busch distributor. With bush your courses sponsorship there are some folks there any in night a chance to catch up with him at the casino. As well to see you're gonna hear from a genial Suarez and Kevin Harvick here in just a couple of minutes both of these interviews recorded earlier in the week. It's pretty cool I mean every July 8 that that the folks a lock and Glenn you know Michael prints up we have on the show all the time. Injure injured Smith there marketing director Chris big Chris banker their PR director. They know lol they they obviously they're very well aware with the proximity of buffalo the biggest media market closest to them. They treat is very well here in west New York in whenever they can bring eight driver to buffalo you know they they do and it's usually every July we get a NASCAR driver. An immediate tour last year was Rusty Wallace you're going through Niagara square. The before they break Kozlowski over the casino we by Kasey Kahne at the go cart track in the Gil re I think Kurt Busch they did one year so every year they bring us. A NASCAR driver this year you we got two in one week's that was real cool it gay gave beat. Us gives us in the in the media opportunity catch up with these guys that'll more relaxed setting them vs the racetrack. And it's easily these guys. Are more willing to open up and have a conversation verses Sadie regular NASCAR media corps that they they deal with on a weekly basis at the racetracks though. And it's it's always fun ketchup of these guys and and we are really appreciate the folks from walker Glenn. Not taken care of us here in west New York this week. With that being a source and your heart actually hear from them in here and just a couple of moments. Also coming up at the bottom of the hour of the world Ausprey cars returned a Western New York for the first time in twenty years. As a they'll be a degree in Seville speedway won a week from today the big are outlawed shoot out. The world of outlaws sprint cars the major sports car series in the country they travel all across North America. From about February to November. And they will make their first visit to western York since 1997 at the reins of bill speedway. And I David gravel who is a ten time winner this year in the world outlaws circuit one of the top driver shall join us. At the bottom of the hour as I it'll be interesting next Sunday because. Pretty much every driver that's gonna be there at least the world outlaw regulars. Led never raced on never raced at the ransom Villa bill to get some locals free car teams that you obviously a little more experience but. I can for 410 sprint cars. They don't get a lot of lot of chances to run at ransom bill civil talked to David gravel. At the bottom of the hour phone lines are open of course two with 8030 fight 51. 88 by fifty to fight fifty Ali can tweet us at fast tracked by fifty and also FaceBook dot com. Us slash WGR fast track is they said for today's race march show X on the poll although the car with the fastest time in qualifying was actually Kyle Larson. But Kyle Larson was disqualified impulse qualifying inspection. When the the thin on the rear deck lid debt clear piece of plastic runs vertical. Down the rear windshield of the car and onto the deck lid that helps control the year all every car has it. His was found to be too low the the second piece that on the deck would not the long piece in the windshield but the the piece that goes and a backlit. Was not as high as it should be. And his time was thrown out and this is now a no other penalty for the Kyle Larson in the 42 team. And Al third such great performance this year on it and if your regulars in the show you know Meehan in rules I'm very black and white when it comes to the rules but. Did this is now being in east peace and systematic. Rules infractions here by the 42 team three times now. You know Larsson has had trouble in pre qualifying inspection where he's not even even been able to take a lap including last week Kentucky didn't even qualify. Started last one of finishing second. And then. I think it's their Wednesday or Thursday of this week we found out. That Kyle Larson received a penalty and post race inspection coming out of Kentucky after he went from last to second. They took the car back to your and he senator down in Charlotte that's a NASCAR's technical headquarters they inspect the cars. A little bit closer than they would at the racetrack and they found eight a rear brake cooling assembly was a legal and apparently the rear brake cooling. System on where it's supposed to be on the car it was kind of protruding into another area of the car where it's not supposed to be. And apparently can affect the air that flows into the car and give the car more downforce which is what all these teams are always searching after. And Dedrick Becky beef Larson at 42 teams lost 35 points which took a lot of the points leading the points lead to Kyle Martin Truex. And his current chief Chad Johnston is now's been suspended for three races so now you've got. Three pre qualifying penalties were and he doesn't even take a lap you've got this big finally come I Kentucky last week. And now he's a legal in post qualifying inspection this week in New Hampshire so that. You know I I'll I'm glad Schuyler has been doing so well and day it's great for the sport that if a young tail like him is succeeding in becoming one of the top drivers but. If they've just gotten this way by. Cheating better and everybody else it's totally a little bit of bad taste in my mouth. I am a little more some more Pete some people are more. More gray area when it comes the rules but I'm very black and white when it comes the rules and I don't like you I see a team like this that's doing so well. Also racked up a lot of penalties. Kyle is kinda playing in a sit about the whole thing saying that you know that he doesn't know much about the cars just dries it and then. Date that the you know that that that's on the team in this bill overcome this and continue on but I have to wonder if this team now starts to fall off maybe they tighten things up a little bit they get more within the boundaries and some of these other areas may be that their plane around with on the car if he starts to struggle here. Later on in the season you know and forcefully not to pull one and one together and NC may be that their performance. Wasn't so much the driver vs maybe they'd just had advantage over the other teams I mean like we said the past we we've seen that Adam link on the on the 22 ever since his penalty early this year. They've been off of their game summit in crashes of course. But is it because they had something. A technical advantage and the teams and after they got found out it took away that advantage and now they've kind of come back to earth. Will that happen with the 42 car on it remains to be seen. Of right now let's go let's go back to Wednesday. And got caught up with dean you'll Suarez this was inside just outside the mayor's office in City Hall actually. He came into town need a press conference with mayor Byron brown in actually the mayor brought up dead Daniel of course say and we talked about on the show here in the past. Daniel actually came to buffalo when he first came to America started driving. In America for NASCAR McCain any series he hooked up with Troy Williams who we talked to on the program earlier this year. I stayed with Troy back in 2011. And the the funny story about he came here in the middle -- anywhere in and never you know growing up in Mexico obviously didn't spend up. Sees snow and being a lot of cold weather growing up a Mac Monterrey Mexico. So was kind of a little bit up. Of culture shock for him so was it the mayor brought that up in his remarks and an ending a talked about it more press conference so start off kind of joking and didn't hear about returning to buffalo but this time in the middle of July vs January Sears dean of Suarez. From Wednesday at an insight City Hall here on fast track. I'll did you welcome back to buffalo it's a little bit nicer than when you're back in January which Williams. What types of you aside. You know I and a mind me in the cold weather we'll but time with nine of them it's not recruits yeah. I think. Experience in the private world with a good bit of experience. And now they know that they've got most important thing. Excited they're back and excited to be promoting days there wasn't it writes. Right. Veteran dialogue I grew up racing and broadens quake strikes them. And these are these several who have come and review board to somebody. I was talking to Chilean might show a couple months ago he still has your winter this that we should send those to the NASCAR hall of fame. Mary Hewitt through. That winter here's this this industry it's going to be some giants on Monday with a preview and when no excuse them. You know there's an accident rate of guy he beat them I don't know signing this. Or I'm excited there didn't. UCs and I know you were thrown into this right after Carr retired down. You start to feel comfortable driving the cup car here but halfway through the season to now more profitable revenue well war and to try to find more speed. And tried to be better off the team. That we've still got a long way to go but. You know this is that everything you're have a few more thank you dean event an event. Are you looking ahead Ed trying to make them play us they know it's a very tight with all these guys went in all these first time winners. Do you do you feel that you can maybe make it down points or maybe guys shooting Ferraro a win here before the into the right the season to try and qualify for the playoffs in your rookie year. I think we'll have to that we didn't I don't think we'll be lounging and I love drivers that are going to be able to make you don't know points. Cheney accidentally. Well I think you'll have to do we do automobiles and getting when we see coming which you are carnivores out this film salt. Hot two months left in this isn't the exit of layoffs have helped who have may have. Cleaning my New Hampshire this weekend that it. And semi truck race there for the extended series so what do you think of. Up that track. Something inside it right now in the in the canning stuff before and I. And I collect. It may have been every bit for a hard and it and the government of serious stuff and hopefully we can do this tomorrow and honest thoughtful and don't know where different. Of course this week we found out that you're gonna need teammate in the cup series next you and Eric Jones up. What's your relationship like with Eric how much do you guys work together on the weekends. Our wallets we will with a walk a lot in the week people who do more of what everything in the weekends I'm. And excited doom you to have him back I don't think I don't think he ever next. Four made Greg is not like having him back guys not know like who would be not teammate. And that's the ratings. His three years ago so you pounded in the desert Iraq. Anyone that they wanted to ask you yesterday new era that weeded out. And it was your name and the map of Mexico the Mexican colors and you reads we dated as well what do you what do you think about that with. Chill in the Mexican pilot data on your merchandise that something that makes you very privacy. Dad really cool vacancy that is. And you know but admitted that drain YouTube kid to reshape. Makes you wish it was a release it's an exciting thing for me. And excited to have the support from Europe to lose count. They think that's good luck this week and New Hampshire later. It. He did again like if they're on button Daniel Suarez from Wednesday here in ends inside city halls again now he was here on a visit. With the other folks from walk and an international on the mayor declared Wednesday that day I'll Daniel swore as day here in. Buffalo, New York key and also. The mayor was at that it'll jokes since dean you'll. They had come to buffalo when he first came to America that that we would be able to claim him as part of our own. The idea of you for when he wins wins another touchy B chip in NASCAR of course the other rainy X and eighty series champion. As we talked about though he's lightly and need to win a race took the qualify for the playoffs here in his rookie year. Despite all of the other first time winners you'd have to be that he still needs to get a win probably to make the plessy comes into today New Hampshire. A 105 points. Behind Matt Kenseth who was currently that would be the last driver. In the playoffs on points Kansas with 478. Swore as with 373 so. Logistically obviously that is more than two races worth of points he would need to make up so. Either he would have to go on on one heck of a hot street and everybody in front of him falters. Or audio obviously he'll have to win here sometime in the Zell last what year was a 319. Reached point where he owns next us seventy races here. Suarez will likely to win. You know to give himself in Q. The playoff contention here his rookie year but obviously you read can you compare him vs some of the other rookies. Like Eric Jones who what we found out is gonna drive the twenty car next year in place of Mac Ken that would Joseph Gibbs racing but you Eric knew a lot sooner that he was. Going to be driving that cup car. I offered her up furniture row racing vs Suarez finding out you know on December January when Carl Edwards decider read too were to retire. And the European team kind of had to scramble to get cars ready for especially the early season races you only Daytona. And the West Coast swing early on they had to do a lot of scrambling to prepare the cars for genial verses Karl. And you know in course he's had to get more costs and to drive in the cup cars and you know it was. Been up and down season he's got four top ten finishes including a best run at a six that Dover but the last three weeks. Sixteenth at Sonoma seventeen to date Tony keep the talkies so still kind him and meddling mid pack but you know with the obviously. Went with the gives team you know they have the the chance to you know jump up here and he weakened to win because of the quality equipment that he is it. So that was Wednesday Thursday came along and Kevin Harvick came to town as they said they flew in Rochester because of the weather drove in which new air and then into the casino. And had a chance to catch up with the driver of the number four car on Thursday here's Kevin Harvick on WG arts fast track. Welcome to buffalo I was for some quality to it where I know you put yourself thinking he checked properties you guys are get a lot of connection with the folks in new era. Well first off. He knows my first trip to buffalo suited to have my first thought he knew it knew where did I guess spitting on him just because they've been great partners of ours over the last years. City get to see their facility and in need of its fans this morning that they're in their store downstairs it was it was something that. You know this was an enjoyable experience so. They're great great great stuff so far and we're getting so arrive in the pouring down rain and and now it's turned into it doing all right there. I'm sorry about the first half of the season obviously and you mentioned here with opinions the switch to Florida how much have you learned through the first half of the season so far. Well it's it's obviously it's been huge learning curve men and I think everybody. You know from top to bottom as is learning about what they do with the car. Every day and and I think as as that involves for us you know you look at the future and it's just. You look at it didn't see your performance getting better and better and better just because we've we've learned so much. On a weekly basis but it's been. It's been a lot of work but you know everybody get their message are imported sister and a great job and working together to try to make the transition as fast as smooth as possible. But I you know we all knew there was going to be some some learning curve in there and so soon to be as competitive as we have been in running up front man I've been to Victory Lane and that all those things. And going to the feeling was important for us just have put us in the position to. I can't answer the questions when you're gonna win again. And when you go in and afford but also see you kind of everybody breather because you know with your with the back against the wall like that kind of makes everybody you know a little bit antsy to you to try to perform as well as you can bet that kind of gives us a chance to step back take a deep breath relax. And really concentrate on. We do and for the playoffs you can't let the stages and things go in in the meantime. Lowered ought to a lot of different racetracks right now you have road courses and short tracks and super speedway isn't. Go back to Michigan on the two mile racetrack so it's hard to establish. You know. Building new things because you're working on so many different types of race cars for all these different types race next what you look your performance say compared to be seventy. You wish maybe stockpiled a few more playoff points earlier in the year seeing how much they racked up. You know there's there's four cars that go into the into the championship race and there's sixteen starts at. You know there's there's a lot of options to to get to homestead there's a lot of options to two win at homestead so. You know for us. We are and we weren't there are fourteen scored in the same position is there's a lot of teams with the manufacturer's switch so. You know there was there are so plan a strategy to you. Jennifer best cars and stuff to go race man and I think everybody would. Little naive to not notice there's going to be some some building blocks some hurdles along the way to have the we all knew that we are gonna have to deal with so it's. I mean I think those are compare what we've we've we've done okay. Leaving about going to New Hampshire this weekend they're gonna put the VHT down apparently that make people more excited to go there and racist comment that type mile trek to New Hampshire. You know I thought that the racing news was pretty good at New Hampshire anyway OK you know so that the short track. Racing has has been being good. Anytime you can possibly open up lanes and have more competitive lines I think that that would. Making any racetrack better not just New Hampshire so dancers. You know fun part of their this whole northeastern part of the country for for me is. But part of the country to come to you one of the best times ever had risen in Oxford Maine that there are strategic and ever since that point we. We've you know that kind of established you're kind of a different side to follow an overhead and in this part of the country so it's it's been fun to it's my appeared compete. Last thing this congratulations that the UN's Elaine I'm sure I think they're very excited perfect counseled not to become Finley of course and the allied lots of new questions. From from five year old Seth. Yeah so we're we're really excited and looking forward to new addition. Generous he's figured buffalo in a thinks I'm Kevin no problem thank you. It there's Kevin Harvick driver of the number four Busch car for Stewart Haas racing in against first full season driving for the rear Stewart cost. Kevin will start today in the twelfth position along site chase Elliott in Rhode number six in. Obviously feel a lot more comfortable now that they do you have that win under their belt at Sonoma a couple of weeks ago although he is fourth and pointy pride behind and often points even without the win. Obviously now they they can now relax your little bit for the final. The seven races here eight races in the regular season. On May be chalk up on the wind gets some more playoff points now they baby got some things straightened out. Harvick does have a good record at an after so maybe today he can get a win number two. As he looks to win a second championship an interest in Dotson Kevin might ask him about the playoff points and he said there are you for cars go to homestead so. Even if you can almost penciled march right in as one of the awful go to those four cars already just because of the playoff points list such an advantage each round in the standings. That you know there's still three other person's good point by Kevin then you know hills torch he's he's made it to the final form of foreign Mittal deal looking to do it once again.
