Up this Saturday night at the -- -- raceway park the reason champions modified tour rolls into town for the first time this season free 75 lap event. And joining me on the line right now is the director of the recent champions modify two or -- our pal is on the line. -- good morning great to talk to you against there. -- always going to be -- showed they've. Looking to make a Western New York swing and not only had Lancaster this Saturday but also the Spencer speedway near Rochester on Friday. Nice little back to back weakened for the tour coming up. Yeah it's great aperture the -- for us and all the teams you know a lot of thirteenth -- miles out of at least in those southern tier of New York. But as well the Pennsylvania security teams into law goes under security and our current ordinance are all resolved in an emotional about pennsylvanians so. You know for them it's great appeal Kamal the Western New York in two races and Beck Beck -- It's worked so well. Obviously a kind of a new era for the tour this season most notably because. You're running on an entire this year you've switched from Hoosier racing tires to American racers. We're now like two races into the season what are some of the reactions you're getting from the -- after two races on this new tire compound. Well I think look like -- any change you know it's very. You know you know tired doing exactly what we hope that it a lot. You know after nineteen years of Hoosier rocker Eric that relationship and and you know we came in this year and really -- A lot of notable change is Annika. The tires is -- An open. For our source peak but -- -- incorporated some of the two -- you know -- bill currently on in have a orchestra. And you know we on our point fund up dramatically and now our children about the scene -- and so. Really a lot of others that tiger really the goal was. We set out that the -- last ball is essentially to come up with a tire -- -- and you know that. They had a light after one race you actually where we're at last year's. You know we we had a higher institute think it was kind of -- lately -- which. You know a lot of the great. He would which goes its delay retirement charters are you fortunately you know what are really the right -- -- throw money at a problem. And that six well so you know and and part of that -- -- on TV he can and that has the where they. -- they could put -- Ireland throw money problem it is really -- any other business life. Attributing entry should be -- well -- -- just you know on -- situation itself. Really where we're at this year. -- that. You repeat. Let our country let you wouldn't let 99. Laps on the east side you know they're the same they're not following. So naturally it's straight in the field of 88 happened a little bit tougher for guys at the races. You know really it's just so early flourished in the figure it out he says. They run the entire island new England and talk it out there and you know are injured and how to communication with the guys everyone's trying to figure it out. And the one thing -- values you know trigger note in Portland feels so it's been a great equalizer and really excited about where we're at because. The nice thing -- again you're tired last week and you know you can bring at least three adult quarterback who want it -- and -- usually very seldom more featured next week in and record it really means there's a hypocrite but. You have an echo that CB said about the lap times I was at the rates at Chang -- That top five including race winner Kyle ebersol and secondly -- and -- they ran their fastest laps of the race. Oh inside the final fifty laps today it was a that came up on the on the transponders. During that -- -- obviously yeah that'll be a very important. Part of this puzzle with the new tire is how long they can -- and that'll certainly be tested at Lancaster on Saturday injure weeks we've seen so many times you know the the -- Hersh in the truck cost felt they run so well -- but. A it's become all about it became all about pit strategy either races they're aware that like you said they go in and make their tire change entry -- the field and that it debt debt strategy might go away -- might be just who can run the most solid semi final -- the typically in the Saturday night. Yeah it's really I haven't really looking forward you know Lancaster and -- you know -- -- Because it is. In in the negative exit -- there is one of the most of great track we go to. It always provided for great site but I think it should all of you guys get a -- there get a hold of the track. And it really going to be interest since he you know what what really happened Saturday I know. -- look at port to a because I think. Really. Most importantly seeing their first true test in the old -- coming Lancaster Saturday you and you know again. You know you're gonna be out until we complete in pictures. And I don't understand a lot of people that you know I want it now mentality that it's the same. And -- in -- race is really. Everything that we were open source that you are at it and he's just sort of learning curve and I till about the quarter you know. A -- below the border going to be my -- tire change. Changes. In the -- and any kind we have it is there a certain you know. Discomfort level people seem to let the -- but. We're -- literary value for their first treason. And I mentioned that I into local reporters no we are talking there's an individuals on the -- I think twice that than the six. And there's a tremendous about passing that day in and tactical from the -- we'll do it for so it's it's going to be an exciting year. And I get the bankrupt the group was remain as well. And that really -- -- path -- least resistance you know this year but -- is doing their homework and it's it's really going to be entry so I'll sort out here. It'll be great race ended ended and care raceway park and I'm sure another. Great matchup possibly between arch rivals that -- -- felt in -- -- Reynolds will be two of the favorites. A lastly -- we got about a minute left here and of course this will also be the second year of recent champions weekend at the last week -- speedway. Second year old will be in July July 19 twentieth and in 21. And obviously a lot of anticipation especially you've announcing the grand marshals going to be should be another great July weaken it Oswego coming up. -- we're really looking forward to it you know it's funny. As a trader on the corner yet for a -- between my racetrack by about forty -- and -- series I personally at thirteen races in you know. You don't give it a mark for Howland with their ROC series in and -- the RC. You know 200 July. Really just. Extremely excited about it as you mentioned. Just -- -- and it becomes actual beside an autograph from Saturday and well serve as a grand Marshal and note that that the it's reiterate the law and -- incident say. You know the trophy is bigger than lyrics that. The guy at end of the day it's on the trophy it's just you know I -- -- before it plunged sees somebody smiled all natural ability to -- and that's that effect. Go to money out and we worked all those things is. Great feeling the importance that date. Anybody that homosexuals feel it. It's one of my favorite events of the year and though his. I'm honored to be part of it Andrew a look at Ford this Saturday -- at Lancaster. Have a great weekend -- at Spencer and and -- raceway park -- -- look forward to seeing on Saturday.
