Good morning -- say he had been a busy race weekend for you and the folks at RPM tonight dot com NASCAR IndyCar Formula One. Where were would you like to start this morning. Oh gosh look up late last night late to get all the stuff posted from the IndyCar is gonna taxes sitting. There and wait for NASCAR today didn't you know not to not not too bad of -- weekend but I. About -- mean it's. Sometimes Smart Alec answers in the stand creek more road little column earlier in the week after the cola -- there's -- suspension and dad. About out -- could portable -- from Tony Stewart who. -- quality and alerts are kind of walk away from what drivers consider what they call stupid questions that. They are certainly didn't think it was such a stupid question that was asked Kurt Busch that. Also don't think that yeah I know his observation that what he said. -- without war this suspension but -- you know it is what it is and -- He's just he's he's got to -- sooner or later they can't do things like that especially when you're on probation. Is it -- take for -- to maybe. Get back in some people's good graces -- Canada's take like media I made a -- -- him -- to stand up and and says -- I've been a real jerk and I'm sorry NN and I'm trying to fix this is. I know he's kind of done that -- but is he gonna have to make a big public apology really began his career back on Turkey. Well leave the only you know to get his career back on track he's still he's got the driving and -- their ability to show that you know -- Do it -- -- car lot few people have done in you know run up content so some -- problem happens and you know. It -- -- finishes he certainly has the talent. Is it it's basically dependency and make all the promises he Lawrence. And you know it's his personality. And its people -- sponsor that that likes him or you know -- and it's no problem you know that that's what drives the -- these days. I don't think he's going to be you know paying. Out 1520 million dollars a year out of his own pocket to driver race car and he's gonna have to have tea a spot to do it's that's that's that's basically what -- all all the issues you know only if if -- -- -- sponsored that that likes and doesn't mind and European -- from -- aren't yet distributor trouble with that -- -- part time base by. Let's talk about the on track action today at pocono. Almost like come into a new racetrack is something we've been here and a lot this week in and you've been now monitoring all the coverage down their pocono. What kind of our race -- think we can expect today at the Turkey triangle. Well it's. You know any time they -- attracted seems like there's one fast way around the track one group. Somebody figures out how to run that the whole day and they run away with the -- it wouldn't surprise me if we see something like that somebody. Hit upon something. It's just that that track is is so unique in itself with a three different turn you can't set up for the whole racetrack you've got. Figure out where you need to be give up one and two and then Agassi and get all three -- -- that long straightaway and maybe today with the -- -- see you know maybe some of the passing its vacant senate the draft right and you know international slingshot Lugo got a stretcher in the term war -- I do. Just based upon what has happened with other tracks when they've been repaid I would think it's going to be pretty much follow the leader type arteries that. Will this have to wait NC. Yeah I could be that the great equalizer could be those -- crucial restarts when they. When they double on back up and if there's a restart late in this race think it could be Alec cannon ball run for the win if we get maybe -- white checkered today. Yeah it's. I I don't know obsolete. With the the repaid to grip the tires. The -- is they're working. I. Idol you know you're on a local C a whole lot of cautions or not we might even be getting that I'm not so sure about -- In you know in in the past it's become a fuel mileage rate sometimes it's pocono so. We might even see that come into play at the end American stretch. You know lap -- to get stripped of their tank of fuel. John Cardin from ESPN in RPM tonight dot com joining us here on WGR fast tracked. John were at the halfway point of the the so called regular season in cup with Greg Biffle as the points leader. Right now if you had prognosticate. -- championship favorite wouldn't be the points leader bit Fuller would you right now. Maybe label someone else's the favorite -- to walk away with a Sprint Cup title this year. Well you know it's the if you look at the way Jimmie Johnson is 15 of these -- -- that Sprint Cup championships. They can look the way they've been running lately -- -- -- and qualified that well middle of the pack get pocono. But. He wants he you know I'd tell you gotta do is make that. You know make make the chase and then once he gets in there -- they can continue running like they have the past few weeks than -- he would be hard to beat. Therefore I just don't know you know. It's one of those guys that's postings where -- Every year you seem to expect good things from them but they don't really deliver so it would be it would be a great story yes. Biffle could you know. Maintain the lead go into the chase and win the title and championship. You know that would be a great story and you know it couldn't happen to a nicer guy he's it. He's a great although he's -- all those guys do it ties that things aren't going well it will it'll test because immediate -- Yeah he's he's had a couple of run -- mostly reports that last year in the pits two with the other drivers.
