Well on the fox carport -- Gary -- to Lou well he is one of the best known names in racing -- -- for the best two reasons.
Usually -- -- had a moment.
Kurt Busch joins us today talk about his new specialist beat Kurt Busch yellow which premieres tonight at 8 PM I'm guessing that title of the show -- -- -- it all but what's -- all about.
It's really uninteresting story on perspective that now a lot of people have seen.
You know -- -- the camera haven't always gotten along and so when I was doing an event earlier this year we had a camera crew come out.
And Jennifer Williamson a producer from zero point zero.
Afterward stormy since -- are not what I expected I expected something completely different from all the headlines and I've always read.
And here you are giving caring.
Thoughtful and just your sympathy forward and what our event was about.
Was our American troops that have come back and were helping them out at Walter Reed and Bethesda.
Long story short she decided that she needed to follow me around in my area and now we have this document.
It's -- -- story you are definitely looking to tell but one maybe it's time people got the full picture of her who Kurt Busch is and I like it because it's an independent group it's not -- -- in the NASCAR garage every week one that drinks to -- -- there this is more of a professional.
But that that speech you know cameras are professional but those are the words they usually come out of my mouth and I -- Stepping on my own stuff sometimes.
Jim Williams is definitely an independent party that will tell the story as she sees it.
You've been kind of try to deal with some of those issues you had in recent years what was the moment where he said you know what my careers maybe not where it should be right now.
Time for me to maybe do something maybe in my own worst enemy.
Well it's a matter of embracing.
What it is out there.
And it was just a fight -- kept continuing to fight on I was worried about results I wanna see results on track race wins -- championship.
Shooting for more championships and then you start to see this unfold and it and it happened through charity work on my name is notoriety.
I'm just trying to be the guy next door.
And yet I can use my name -- a powerful way to try to influence things to happen and so it's been great working with the armed forces foundation and seeing that come into play.
And now with this type of show it's like I -- let's let's show what that question mark is above above my head -- want it really has.
NASCAR is kind of a complicated sport over the years there's sort of change what they want it to be couple years ago they want because -- be prep school boys now it's a little bit more let him go out there on the track and maybe even in the pits -- some sort Phoenix this week.
What do you think is best for the fans what do you think's best for NASCAR will which should -- be doing there.
Well this week is a perfect stage to stand on to say you know here it is a guy named Jeff Gordon four time champion that.
Has really carried the sport from where it was an early ninety's to what we enjoy today.
And then it seems step out of his normal boxes MO.
Was not to go on retaliate that aggressively to somebody if it was me -- my little brother we're guilt by association a lot.
It would be handled very differently.
But Jeff has equity built he's a champion of our sport that's done so much for so many years.
That he said he had enough well I've said that.
When I've done things wrong too that it's just handled differently and it's because that color that flare that we need to see in -- sport.
We need to see that come out we can't all be cereal boxes and be thrown into the same.
Category that that's happened because our sport has come from small millions to big millions and corporate America now controls more of our sport and we think.
You've dealt with a lot of sponsors over the years that me.
Giving more from now more willing to accept that sort of bad boy thing a little bit more or -- you -- kind of going away from the clean cut.
Well you don't need a black -- ago you know you can't be too rough you can't be too edgy but that can show through.
And driver shouldn't be afraid to do that that's one thing that I've always done.
And that's what's got me in trouble a lot so is it coming back around don't know.
At least stay true to my my thoughts and you know guys I looked up to like coach Bobby Knight was throwing chairs and cussing at players and things like that coaching through fear.
That's how -- raced more than mentality from other seventies and eighties and that stay true to that.
There are branded team furniture a -- -- great start to.
Top ten finishes in a row how are looking for next year for you're you're going to be championship contenders are gonna take a little time to -- could you -- go for next year.
We can win and we have to make sure we put it TV and see in the right order and then continue to work on TD and a and just go right on down the line.
We've got all the right people.
Barney Visser the owner furniture row.
He is committed this to see his way his identity of doing it different can be done.
On the guy I've been doing it different for awhile and and I think the two of us it to -- perfect combination.
