Have followed the sport for many years and have never bren a fan of any of the Wallace Brothers. Thanks to this podcast I now have a totally different opinion about Kenny. I dont think I would ever say this about any of the Wallace's but Kenny strikes me as genuine as they come. Thanks Dale Jr and Dirty Mo Media.

...situational....Clint Boyer handled his business When it came to it. depends on the personality. although Clint is a bad A** I do believe he's a little lucky Ryan was still in his car, because i do believe he is a personality that would for sure deal with it and would not be hoping for crew to back him up.

I am a HUGE Rusty Wallace Fan, and thats the first time I listened to your Podcast ( my co worker told me about this) because I love Rusty and you have completely changed my life. Seriously I have a new love for racing I have always loved it but when Rusty retired then Tony Stewart it was tough. My dad took me to The Snowball Derby and I started keeping up with Chase and because of you Clyde Lol. You talked about Door Bumper Clear and I have now added to my favorites. I look forward to Tuesday I have to be at work really early before 4am and I just wanted yall to keep up the amazing stories you do. My dad is the reason I love NASCAR and he died 5 years ago and he was like your dad hard core and listening to old school drivers stories reminds me of him. Keep up the amazing work and continue to get other drivers on your show. Roll Tide!!!!
