Well they have they've got a really cool program going on what -- -- -- trying to get back to our troops and support our military.
And out a way they're doing that is that this departures program they're gonna get up to 250000 dollars coming up here soon.
To that program and then support our troops will take that over and then figure out what the need is and then where they can help out the -- Men and as far as our part and that we're just gonna run these tires and -- it -- really great on the race car that got the yellow ribbon with the logo on it so we're excited about this weekend.
And you'll see support your troops on all the tires Matt.
If you would talk about the relationship between the military in NASCAR and why it works so well and has for so many years.
Yeah I think especially over the years NASCAR has done a great job of certain NASCAR foundation supporting a lot of different.
Different charities and different different causes all over the place but.
It's neat to see the different companies are involved in NASCAR as well like Goodyear take initiative to go start this program to.
To support our troops so the money goes directly to help.
All the active military that's serving all all around the world so.
It's need to be part of these programs -- we can do this and I go to Goodyear dot com you can find out all body can bid on our.
-- used tires that we're gonna autograph after the race and and along with different items.
And also if your car truck needs tires -- -- donating dollar per tire.

Will link that website Goodyear dot com slash gives back to our web -- FOX & Friends that come out I have to ask you about the news you made.

Well this take -- tell you are going hopefully you'll be able to make an announcement sooner than later so -- -- Been a busy couple weeks I've had a great thirteen years at at Roush Fenway racing really looking forward to the rest of the season.
-- our were leading the points have been running really great hopefully we can we can keep it up there and and challenge for a championship.
This here at Trevor real quickly the owner of Daytona also made some news saying -- Is suggesting mandatory cautions kind of like half time breaks at a football game Jeff Gordon said.
He's open to that idea do you think this is good for NASCAR to increase the excitement.
I you know I don't really have an opinion on a one way or another I mean.
Either way we've got to get 400 miles and you got to be there at the end and so I don't think that'll really change the outcome too much at the end of -- race.
But you know we've we've always had -- competition costs and that has certain tracks where they have new pavement or things like that so it's not the first time it's been talked about.
I'm not sure how -- about a halftime break but.
-- we'll see what -- come up with him we'll just erase that and out of -- guy's gonna win the doubt the best strategy and -- in best pit stops about -- car so.
I'd still comes down to competition and in the -- out there on any given day.
