Normally stuff as if he's got -- keep guys in studio he's in control grab in the phone number which got the right -- -- by the way I'm inside.
And you could see its online right now that you are back -- -- of friends and -- -- able to take a quick left turn.
Because we -- able to talk about -- in the press conference yesterday would happen or economy this morning stunning jobless numbers.
Is that -- -- 375000.
Which is kinda high is 439 isn't it amazing those numbers come out right after the election.
I mean you talking about a game changer.
The prison would no longer be able to say -- we're heading in the right direction.
But I digress.
For now let's talk about something else and you passion about that that score in studio.
Kurt Busch is here.
Kurt Busch the outlaw is a documentary he endorsed it by zero point zero productions which by the way is -- the coolest names of production company.
That I can imagine it airs tonight.
The fifteenth at 8 o'clock on the speed channel Kurt welcome to kill -- different.
They kill made us -- before.
I -- I won't -- -- -- there was a quick stop by like quick drive by it was quick drive guy but does it for you to come iron to talk about this and to see you attend the -- what's been done with the show it's it's exciting and it's fun and who knows what the view will be afterwards but to me this whole episode helped mean.
Look at the Cameron a different way.
And be able to trust -- a bit more and that's that's really been my struggle through the years of just trusting working being done in -- -- -- behind the camera.
So -- -- -- viewpoint champion 2004 correct.
You've won 25 races.
NASCAR races over on the Sprint Cup Series and it's Erica in Sprint Cup Series and you're a guy still in the prime of your career.
And for a lot of people who know this quite well and others who don't.
-- is a guy the top of his game.
But it is almost like looked as an -- because he said it like it is you you were yourself on cameras -- off camera and maybe your.
Passion for driving.
Didn't play as well for you -- when he came to the media is that correct.
Yeah I mean there I've just been a non conformist and there's ones that live within the -- and not just touched created my line in a sense that.
It's the way that I believe her I wholeheartedly feel about certain situations and then.
You know it's not viewed in the way that I thought that it should have come out and it's just because of the way that things are changing I still believe.
So the roots of NASCAR.
Back in the the 70s80s leading into the ninety's were.
To -- your emotions on your sleeve and we can't do that anymore we can't do that with corporate America involved in the millions and millions than it is for sponsorship.
We now have to be choir boys we have to be.
Straightforward and clean cut and you can't be edgy.
And so -- just stay true to my -- all along and now with this new team this is a unique situation.
That organ they'll be ourselves and still be competitive you you joined a new team this year.
Tell us about that furniture row racing great group of guys out of Denver Colorado so that already sets the stage of wait a minute you're not in the Carolinas.
Where all of the big NASCAR teams are.
Well we are in a sense we are -- -- Carter Richard Childress racing.
Which Kevin Harvick won this past weekend we -- engines and designs from that team.
And this is -- group though that Barney -- he's the owner with furniture row.
Wants to do it out there to employ people in the state of Colorado and to have his race shop right there in his backyard.
In time -- creates this different element and so.
That's where I've been different all along and the guys in the media were trying to give me this black black hat to Wear now it seems to fit no prom and -- -- Let me tell me did you feel like -- -- exiled for awhile that you were on the outside looking mean even -- you're in the -- your career -- -- could drive with anybody -- already shown.
Now wasn't on the outside -- kept feeling like I was fighting this.
This isn't the identity of who I am and it it was.
-- -- always track yeah how -- -- just in general are a fan like I'm doing this armed forces foundation event that Veterans Hospital.
And he has you know I I really is -- you're -- -- -- -- I really thought that she reduced -- for the publicity to get your picture taken I didn't know that you were.
This committed to making a difference or that you -- this person in a sense and I'd get that -- everybody so I kept fighting the fight with the media -- they are wrong willing tiny town that they're wrong.
They're gonna jump on even more right so this is just a unique way to show.
Should just just take it from a different land -- you're -- -- A car you walking around you -- -- of the armed forces the wounded those wounded two of button and in battle.
And we get a chance to see you outside is going to be tonight at 8 o'clock.
And you -- yourself.
Maybe that you know you -- yourself in the after awhile.
In in doing a lot of research with the card machines of the world and getting a chance -- it is -- -- housewives.
Is it like that where you almost forget the cameras there.
If the cameras that's.
I'm as we with a camera I don't like it around against class -- -- -- with in car cameras -- -- -- -- again I don't like it thankfully I don't have that that and a did you sense that camera.
I know what's on YouTube I went I didn't wanna pick my nose is one of my famous YouTube videos -- -- -- -- really now it's.
-- to me the way -- the -- turnout it it's it's something that.
Was seen through a third party.
Through Jennifer Jennifer Williams was zero point zero and they weren't than normal NASCAR and leading group war.
This is just community from the outside done very professionally and it was like.
Something not even know that we are doing we're just gathering footage for the armed forces on -- day when this all star.
-- -- that's forcing occurred no doubt you counties successes or even proven and everyone knows you're in the prime of your career.
But because of maybe your actions in the NASCAR and trying to be all things to all people said it's -- good for -- to be front -- Perhaps now you backe got the support he got the sponsorship you're able to win and I point to -- Phil Jackson has more titles anybody else but he'll only go with the team that gives them a shot at winning.
Because if you don't have the material as good coaches you war.
He's not gonna win it by putting him with the clippers during their horrible times Phil Jackson that control the personnel could not win -- Is it safe to say that in NASCAR's gonna drivers you or you have to have a certain level of commitment financial.
Any new vehicles.
Everything from your crew on down are you are gonna win.
Yeah absolutely I mean I live in the Charlotte area see the Charlotte Bobcats struggling I H shows in the sense not to clues about -- the player than I either get better I'm I'm rooting for him and I chose a team this year that was bare bones.
I wanted to try to carry them.
Q a win and we came in third at Sonoma we we almost did it we almost.
Cinderella put the glass slipper on it almost happened.
Now settling back in with a primary team.
This is a situation we have to go back to business.
And so is -- -- is your mindset I will show you.
The daddy look out I was done I did that all this year now it's just settle in and in with this new team get back in the groove of posting results you know I want people to -- when I finish eighth.
Because that's expected.
Amnesty -- here's here's I think is so hit -- apocryphal about the world of sports.
Is that we celebrate John McEnroe those tantrums and we still play them back in either when he goes on the senior tour.
People show up at his events wait for the -- -- six year old John Mac or lose it again.
Bobby Knights coach and I love -- Bobby -- blow up at those press conference is -- is being -- -- to -- with them and then this weekend Jeff Gordon.
The poster boy for all that's good mr.
He has a time when he loses it and they have an all out brawl it looked like a bar room brawl taped on Saturday night in in -- across this country.
And yet people don't -- he's fine and he's he's actually was dark some points.
But he didn't lose any sponsorship the world get a kick him out of the sport.
It's -- -- -- changes -- much in fact NASCAR lead on an NFL Sunday because of that fight.
Absolutely and if it was a Busch brother doing this it would have been let's lynch the act this was a staged.
That proves -- staying strong to my roots of how the sport was built and having that tenacity having that aggressiveness.
And rubbing people wrong way sometimes.
Holding true behind the -- If you asking eraser out there they'll say that I'm one of the cleanest guys out on the track right and that I'm one of the the guys that they really don't wanna see in their review -- Come towards the end of the race.
But -- Gordon did knew what to retaliate right then and there.
Creates this well this is the color this is the excitement this is what NASCAR's been missing.
But if I did it -- it would been a huge problem well that's because Jeff Gordon has the equity built up he's a four time champion.
He's done things to help this sport.
And guide -- this sport from -- early ninety's to what it is now and with corporate America so involved in the sponsorship is being so many dollars we had to be.
That an -- and that and that choir boy now it's it's Gordon -- and out of box and it's all right.
It's been -- -- whole time senior trying to carry that banner and so it's great to see this happen this week.

The fifteenth in case we get -- played over the weekend.
