You can't and I still Heyman is always cool to be heroes and it shouldn't waiver and that's what I think it's neat it's. About Kansas City right now is obviously getting beat up on a little bay here it's almost like. They're pushing even harder showing their support and and you know not waver from that and in as a competitor and and yes I mean it's in a sport that's been.

And though and that's when he told me you know I'll close it was. And shows us some of the the most simple things in line that we enjoy and take burger and those sometimes the most dangerous code did you ever have anything like that when you race where you got -- oh my god it's in my life flash before my eyes out there was one of them really do believe it's over 200 miles an. It's different impacts bed yeah. What's it like it like it hurts like hell yeah but not liking me bleed mountain and everything else. Com now it's just like Talladega last week in. If those are probably the most unique because it's never just you'd react. You know it seems like these 1520 this in one of those big melee is and everybody gets in the new cases like. You know they're checking your bottles of makes you are guy in there Tony blood pressure through will Nokia lady here at this rally to see where I came. You know I've been the and it's like who else are new world talked in a month is of the doctor that Obama.

That that would be awesome to be kind of is there to see what's going on doctors are trying to work and you guys in your screaming yeah right did you receive a fight break out know that sometimes I I would have liked he gave that doctors some news to work on I got four. I let's get back view and in as little bit about the racing because you're back to wicked man for like first time since 2012 Connolly. You know the royals will both open and came back and fourteen of fifteen and start to win in your win in your top five right now as we tape this amenable what's been worked countries. Well I think it's the very thing that you learn as a kid and and they teach you guys as any coach or any sport hearing you never give up never give up he can never waver from that and and you know I didn't they got beat up quite a bit and got moved around a lot. Thanks to roll and and twelve and thirteen next thing you know this out of the clear believe sign a new three year three year long term deal that. Got a ton upside in and positive things going on in. Gadgets decided he's done he's Clinton. So now you're out on the streets trying to find a job and and obviously tried it. Had to take some things that that you didn't necessarily wanted to do but that's what you had to do to get back on topping get yourself as Dallas aligned. With an organization Maxtor Haas racing it you know. It's capable of putting equipment on you do ego laden in competing your best and win these races. Had that last year com have a lot of name last year yeah obviously anything years since it had been in a competitive car. And then all of a sudden you've got a new crew chief. Bomb things changed a lot as far as the technology in what it takes to be successful in our sports com. Simulation. The technology and our sport right now we just just brought on nineties Andy's an IT company. If you had done it in years ago and our sport agreement with what's that Kennedy would. Would you re going with that what's the point in and now I mean I'm talking literally what are for our organization. If that IT guy the one guy that we can't live without honor race weekend at a racetrack is the IT guy. If he's gone we have a problem I mean it's like vehicular meltdown it shuts the whole company down. From from everything for the engines I mean. If you have trouble than changing used to you know proceed news does that in the boys are underneath it pulled a car rare about covers whatever the into the bottom they diagnose and at the old way. There even lifted and it. Now that the IT guy computer guy goes over the engine tuner the agency there doesn't have a 963 it's in his hand anymore. He's got a accord opposes laptop and he's like. Yea or day this blown up or you're Canadian makes a quick adjustment in the fuel map and a week I don't mean that. Is how far sports team and it's all because of the technology in. And you know is why we need these IT company. How many times the IT guys tried rebooting before it. I guess I'd say yeah I mean simulation behind you know our sport I mean this set ups and things he's go to the track it in you to stay there T figured out. Shocks springs. Track bar adjustments whatever is the case may be different front in geometry. Now that's all done and simulation before it aggregates in the track in and it on the today though that computer it's a buyers who will you don't want to be Seacrest has done me an asterisk card it's gonna handle bad and nine games nine times I think you're going to be in the things. It sounds awesome until it goes haywire nugget that you need to act haywire like now. Like like books for couldn't find team could find some ideas and that's molester deal with come off the ball way back. To its offs that are meaningless that's different world and we you know mind. My brother mind all my stuff misses we do it it's just like we did when it all started in in you know it's funny every test that baseball world. All world football world NASCAR world how to or outward in. And you see players really take off and get that big deals on the down nine. You know we have our TA the owners basically you need it you know we missed us now on our sport. It. Takes its at all on your own personally individually so. Everything's different but it's it's it was neat to see that. You know Obama it's all about team work it's all about the people around you that's the number one thing in this business. Even acted. In it's the wrong deal. Way you did that and next thing you need it to three years in. Again. Stick with with people and you. Accessible. Quality and win real. When you start to make a mistake once staff. Gary you. You don't have to be greedy once in if you view Leckey and have you Baylor and learn from that mistake can go wrong because I mean that's on everybody's. Taste might and I bet chase the money and that's that's a different business to Munis he has got the vast wall world right now mean. It's so frustrating to me because I come from us or you're really honorees you know. Professionally in your kid I mean the you know and and that's how you that's maybe it you know we race and NASCAR we race and series. Without that series in that program I couldn't afford it the next part of the next year for the next year he's. The next engine tethered to provide the speed to win and be successful for that next opportunity and so forth and so on and all this that stepping stones of NASCAR. That's how he did it. You know and and now yeah obviously Ozzie knees of basketball and and a goal and that's how you practice and it's a different world that. You know to see those those guys that are taken that money at an early age in and maybe not miss the education so that night that. On these difficult. It's it's it tricky thing because I don't blame them either way either side and you don't blame them I mean all it takes and there are euros a year Kuerten in her you're you're near something like that and you never got that opportunity you must be. Sacking groceries rescue alive I mean that's real that is now and that's something that's me. In my opinion difficult for them to. You know to base in the future your charitable aspect of things pretty remarkable I was doing some reading in much better reason view all this money given back to Emporia community. And your importing that kind of on your kids your sons raised money for charity and stuff like that would keep adding that's fantastic as well it cools things teach your kids had to give back. What was your son out raising money for and and how did you give him convinced. Like hey man this is what you got to. Well they did it you know program preschool at any rate. 6500 dollars and Erica. Com I told them that they'd I told the teachers that they raise that would bring a race car out and we batteries day. That happened days they raise the money and and through all their programs and for those kids to work that's what we did we. You know go and agree that doorbell and sell candy bars some key chain immense yeah you know the kids. Because they didn't want it you do it but David duke because he shamed me into next year those innocent little kid at the doorstep vegan. To works of and and that's it teaches us allies in I'm an adult. And I were our companies and you know part of a sport where your face to do that. And to be a spokesperson and into have to go about it of those deals and make and be a success not only on the racetrack but it you know off off. But behind the scenes of business to business and everything how our world works. Those days on those those candy bars in going down to own a car mile man down and Emporia. Those are the experiences that really set me up later on my deal happen competency go and looking guy and the guy asking for. You know millions of dollars beyond cyber race car that we can represent hammer whatever the case may be. Go back to charity stuff. Yet import community foundation you know when we obviously do a lot of stuff with in our community very proud to be. A part of NASCAR because they NASCAR the community out of I think is is better than any others. Sporting organizations. Is as far as giving back in and I am a proud to say that we we all support one another causes. The NASCAR foundation everybody eats eat look over at one of those events and it's all the drivers on board Indonesian. Not only their time their money to you that whatever the case may be that and we all have our own causes to. And that's where. You know the app all these things that mr. hospitals and so. Many different things are meaningful to you that you do you give to let's for me it was always an easy when to go back home. Because every time I went back there there was something that felt like acted like you know can treaty to you and things like that we've been evident. Build a community building that everybody in community uses from winning instead business meetings to. After school programs backpack programs scholarships. I mean we've we've done at all and proud to to be apart and there's a lot of people. It's do leg work in and just proud of what we've done shortly I mean but without you it does indeed that's going accusers pretty cool I was looking at forget. It that's that's a pretty sweet you've given almost two million more than two million I guess back to Emporia. Since you've been able you know to do this Rudy obviously did racing what's the most fulfilling moment you have at UN. Wow I just needed different when somebody's life. I think it was that community building like it means that we we donated to to the community to its beauties that we built. Around leaned on. My buddy Blake Chenault name dropper well I'm. He said I was at that moment and that was it on Stan and I could easily I couldn't believe that you know I showed in the pictures of one night continent and his partner know revered site. And that's pretty awesome when he would because eyes told him you know I was asking actually. You know how he would do that back was set up like an acoustic show or something he had some Lebanese act will pay. We do the grand opening complain cause you know that is yeah driver. Eight and in. On the home mom and showed up put on a show and and I was the welcoming moment in the surreal moment for me. Humans were preschoolers ask some pretty cool questions about what some of the stuff they ask you got to give them my little crisis that was it was that it was it was a body that it was funny is is she told that the use the levers. One time I choked on something in my face storm blew up a responded that. Some good questions obviously the ones everybody gases we union. Laws. That. And union now on the three year old you know what's gonna come out bright and those kids are no exception they use a Acer made. Its trustees said they still have. No idea what they're gonna ask what the embassy bullies or you gotta be careful. Because it's probably what you said that's Ryan and here life is going to be all over you and a repeat that that's Mora now got a touted I don't know maybe carefully because they will they so.
