The top of the hour he's known to the racing world is that no nonsense driver and right now he's gearing up for a possible Daytona win.
After coming oh so close to a Sprint Cup championship last year joining us right now and also winning that race NASCAR superstar -- editor Carl welcome back thanks for having impresses us is need to be on the show it's almost funny you asked no questions we get to talk about NASCAR to blast that's -- -- -- going to be good.
Because a little bit later you're gonna have to cohost with Kelly -- and be Regis but Karl first things first.
Coming off this season tie breaker -- who -- -- you'll run erupted Tony Stewart does it -- would you feel like you accomplished a lot.
I feel like I -- a lot -- I think it's it's just like like you go out -- you give your very best our whole Fastenal Affleck team.
We worked hard we did our jobs and and Tony Stewart stepped it up and you know we did -- but but if I -- -- the way he did I'd be proud of that.
Right to Jimmie Johnson had won five in -- -- right so last few weeks that streak is broken.
So -- you with beating the by the razors edge.
In Johnson looking to come back you could argue that this is as intriguing as -- been in the last twenty years yet NASCAR has so much momentum and at the fans really enjoyed the the championship chase.
I I enjoyed it almost as much as as I -- but.
I think -- -- -- a huge -- -- the February 26 Daytona 500 is is probably it'll be one of the -- five -- we've had to make some rules changes.
We don't really know how it's gonna turn out but it's.
And the drivers are a little nervous I think the fans anticipating the best -- -- -- hundreds -- history of you to think about cars and think about because they drive but from you in the auto industry you've been through hell over the last three -- four years.
Being with forward being -- -- did not need a bailout.
Did you feel the pinch.
I learned a lot about about the economy I learned a lot about hard work and a free market through there through the downturn with Ford.
Jim Farley brought us in NASCAR that the Ford racing teams and said hey guys this is -- this is not going to be at this a crisis in trouble GMs in trouble.
And -- in trouble if we -- everything down.
And if we do our job right we create the best cars on the planet will be okay and that's what they've done.
And -- -- the auto show you with the Ford Fusion yesterday that domestic automobiles -- legacies of the -- that you've been on for the last few years they feel.
I feel personally responsible for your success with Kelly -- In about two hours with some wondering would you mind being go to a few rehearsals we would go over things and maybe even get the idea what it's like to.
Beat my spot us from me ask you if you question if the purpose which perfect.
If you don't mind you so happy here and you pretend like I'm comedy and not that I'm -- but I -- guessed -- you have got any questions from did you have any any curiosity.
Bowl and I have been thinking as a right watching the show it it.
It is why my honesty in the office this the second thing advocated is it as this GOP debate I mean it is this.
That's been hard on -- personal right and a lot of people it's a great questions assuming people focus on the candidates.
But what about the anchors -- got to get up and -- the morning shows what about those write it what about us in the fact that you thought enough for me to answer the -- about me.
Shows empathy and that's the -- has to do that's a primary -- -- -- -- -- you're off to a tremendous start is there any other question that you would ask.
Let's say you run Kelly two billion Kelly -- But I guess I I was a little -- see that.
Stephen -- -- they actually label their computers with their names -- -- guys actually be a long are they worried about stealing their -- exactly I have a long history of theft and being that they don't really -- rotate anchors on the show they thought -- -- label things -- just won't give it back.
Do you notice I don't have a label because it doesn't matter what computer I have I don't know how to work it.
This that was quite a problem well -- You see these stills is -- connection you still -- -- really well you know what I've noticed that you have not taken individually at all in me asking these questions it it seems like you your.
You're just you're not having any -- -- -- so what what.
What are you gonna do this afternoon that's -- you bring that up.
That's -- area devoted to that I've been around 2 o'clock I'm gonna take a shower in my office to get this huge -- And I'm -- -- -- change outfits.
But I I'm not -- -- NASCAR moderates from the big deal and hopefully on February point six or -- -- -- Daytona 500 and and I I really I -- -- -- -- -- the Super -- -- -- that.
Where what do you do noticeable exactly.
Again so we be -- focused on who's at the Super Bowl what is Brian doing we're gonna be -- -- and the the bad experience so going to be seeing you there hopefully they'll catch up -- event -- I think for had a giant presence there are some of you can talk a little business with them.
