THEY HAV■@CREATED A CUSHION FROM THE REST OF THE PACK, AND WHAT IS IT LIKE FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP ! CON TENDERS? WELL, WE WILL CHECK IN WITH BOTH OF THEM BEGINNING WITH SAM HORNISH WITH VINCE.>>WELL, WE KNOW THAT AUSTIN DILLON IS GOING TO THE SPRING CUP NEXT YEAR, AND SO SAM HORNISH IS FINALIZING THE PLANS FOR NEXT SEASON, AND WHO KNOWS THE POTENTIAL BATTLES BETWEEN THESE TWO DOWN THE ROAD, BUT LE■■S FOCUS ON TODAY, AND THE NEXT TWO RACES. YOU ARE SIX POINTS BEHIND, AND %!HOW DO YOU SIZE IT UP WHERE 3 %!ARE WITH TWO ■ GO?>>WELL, WE’D LOVE TO BE WAY AHEAD, BUT THAT IS NOT WHERE WE ARE, AND YESTERDAY THE CAR WAS NOT AS GOOD AS WE NEEDED IT TO BE AND THE GUYS WORKED HARD OVERNIGHT TO TRY T■@MAKE IT BETTER.)■ WE HAD MULTIPLE MEETINGS AND FELT LIKE WE QUALIFIED ABOVE THE POTENTIAL YES■RDAY, AND WE ARE HAPPY WITH THE WAY THE DAY STARTED FOR US, AND WE HAVE TO HAVE■■A OD PIT STOPS AND STRATEGY AND FUN TO BE A PART OF THE BATTLE, AND FULLY EXPECTING TO GO INTO NEXT WEEK AND TRY TO DO WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO PUT US[ IN THE BEST POSITION TO WIN. >>YOU MENT■NED THAT YOU SAID THAT THE CAR WAS NOT AS GOOD AS YOU HOPED IN PRACTICE, AND YOU HAVE WON HERE BEFORE, SO YOU KNOW WHAT IT TAKES FROM A GREAT CAR TO WIN, AND WHAT DO YOU NEED FROM THE CAR TODAY?>>WELL, WE HAVE THE CAR CLOSE ENOUGH, AND WE LE HAVE TO TWEAK ON IT AS THE TRACK CHANGES AND THE SUN SETS AND HIDES BEHIND THE GRANDSTANDS, BUT THE BIG THING IS THE PIT STOPS, AND THE STRATEGY IS SO KEY, BECAUSE NASCAR, AND NOT NASCAR, BUT GOODYEAR BRINGS A HARDER TIRE HERE, BECAUSE OF THE RE-PAVE AND A LOT OF THINGS THAT YOU HAVE TO DO WITH THE TRACK CONDITION TO F■■URE OUT TWO TIRES, THREE TIRES, NO TIRES, FOUR TIRES, AND YOU HAVE THE PRESSURE ON THE GUYS MAKING THE CALL TODAY. >>AND NOW WE WILL GO OVER TO JAMIE LITTLE WITH THE MAN LEADING THE WAY. >>WELL, AUSTIN, YOU TOLD■■S THAT THE CAR UNLOADED AND ONE OF THE BEST THAT YOU HAVE HAD ALL YEAR LONG, AND HOW CAN THAT TRANSLATE TO A GOOD ■■UTCOME TODAY?>>WELL, YOU WANT TO OBVIOUSLY HAVE SPEED IN THE CAR, AND IT %!WAS CONSISTENT YEST■$DA3■AND E GUYS DID GREAT JOB WITH THE HOMEWORK AND WE HAD A GREAT TEAM MEETING BEFORE THE RACE, AND WE ARE GOING TO WORK TOGETHER D GIVE 110%, AND I AM PROUD OF THE TEAM WHO HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB THIS YEARS, AND I WANT TO FINISH STRONG. >>AND WHEN IT COMES TO EXPERIENCE, YOU HAVE ONES THAT CAR TRUCK CHAMPIONSHIP, AND MEANWHI■, SAM HORNISH HAS AN INDY CAR CHAMPIONSHIP, AND WHO HAS THE ADVANTAGE?>>I WILL TAKE MY TEAM.

AND HELLO, EVERYONE, AND WELCOME TO THE “NASCAR PRERACE SHOW.” WE ARE JOINED BY THE CREW CHIEF RAY, AND THE BIG STORY IS AUSTIN DILLON LEADING OVER SAM HORNISH, AND WHAT DO YOU EXPECT TODAY?>>WELL, I REALLY FEEL GOOD ABOUT THE CHANCES OF AUSTIN DILLON, BECAUSE HE FEELS GOOD ABOUT THE CAR, AND SA BE SEARCHING FOR IT. BUT WHEN THE RACE IS IN IT, I EXPECT IT TO BE VERY, VERY CLOSE. THERE IS A LOT OF CONVERSATION AB■■T SAM HORNISH AND THE■$IDE NEXT YEAR, AND WE KNOW THAT AUSTIN IS GOING ON TO CUP, AND HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS GOING TO DO. I TALKED TO ROGER PENSKE, AND HE SAID THAT HE IS OUT LOOKING FOR %!THE SPONSORS, AND THEY DO WAN TO KEEP SYSTEM SAM IN THE CAR, AND FOR MY OPINION, THAT IS REFRESHING TO HEAR IT, BECAUSE WE FELT THAT SAM WAS GONE AT THE END OF THE YEAR. >>YES, AND SAM AND AUSTIN HAVE BEEN THE CLASS OF THE FIELD OUTSIDE OF THE CU! GUYS WEEK IN, WEEK OUT OF THE SERIES, AND I ■0PECT BOTH OF THEM TO BE RUNNING WELL. SAM HAS BEEN CONSISTENTLY FAST THROUGHOUT THE HISTORY O■@THE TRACK, AND SO I THINK THAT WE WI■ SEE A GREAT RACE TODAY, AND AUSTIN MAYBE FINISHING AHEAD OF SAM AND CONTINUING ON WITH THE LEAD IN THE HOMESTEAD, BUT WE HAVE A LOT OF RACING BEFORE THAT IS FIGURED OUT. >>YES, WE ■■LKED TO BOTH OF THE GUYS HALFWAY THROUGH THE ‘■ASON AND BOTH SAID THEY HAVE TO WORK %!ON THE CONSISTENCY. WITH SAM, HE HAD CRASHES AND SPEED TAKING HIM OUT, AND AUSTIN THE SAME THING, AND IT SEEMS THAT AUSTIN HAS FOLLOWED THE CURVE AND NOT WON YET, BUT I EXPECT HIM TO CREEP OUT AND BE CONSISTENT AND WIN TODAY. >>AS YOU SD, AUSTIN DILLON HAS NOT WON A RACE YET, AND HE WOULD BE THE FIRST CHAMPION TO ACTUALLY NOT — NOT WIN A RACE, AND ■■AT DO YOU THINK OF THAT?>>WELL, AUSTIN IS COMPETITIVE, AND HE DOES NOT WANT TO WIN A RACE, SO WE DON’T HAVE TO ASK HIM ALL YEAR ABOUT NOT WINNING A RACE, SO AT THE END OF THE YEAR, HE WANTS TO HAVE THE TROPHY TO HOLD, AND IT DOES NOT MA■(ER IF YOU WIN A RACE, BUT IT IS WHO ENDS UP WITH ■■E TROPHY. >>WELL, I THINK THAT HE HAS )■ SOMETHING TO PROVE WITH THE BIG TROPHY BASED ON KEVIN HARVICK’S COMMENT AT THE TRUCK RACE. >>YES, AND THE NASCAR RACE DOES NOT HAVE A CHASE FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP, AND IT IS A WHO GETS THE MOST POINTS AT THE END OF THE YEAR WINS. AND LOOK, IF HE DOES NOT WIN A RACE, I DON’T CARE.>>IT DOES NOT CHANGE IT. >>NO, NOT AT ALL, BRAD, BECAUSE IF HE WINS, THEY WILL FORGET HIM NOT WINNING, AND REMEMBER HIM FOREVER FOR BEING A CHAMPION AND IT DOES NOT BOTHER ME AT ALL]■>>AND HE COULD ■■SILY WIN HERE ! TODAY AND TWO MORE INSTANCES]■>>YOU CAN’T WIN A COLLEGE FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP WITHOUT WINNING A GAME, AND CERTAINLY NOTRE DAME AND PITTSBURGH UNDERSTAND THAT,B AND THEY PLAYED THREE OVER TIMES IN SOUTH BEND, AND THE HIGH AFTERFIELD OF BRIAN KELLY’S FIGHTING IRISH AND CLOSE TO THE MAJOR BOWL BID AS THE PANTHERS ARE LOOKING FOR THE UPSET TO KEEP THE BOWL ELIGIBILITY ALIVE.

EASTERN, IT IS NOTRE DAME AND )[ PITTSBUR ON ABC. >>>TODAY, ONE OF THE FA-ORITS HAS TO BE■■ATT KENSETH, BUT WITH THE SPRINT CUP IMPLICATIONS HANGING OVER HIS HEAD TOMORROW, IS HE TAKING TOO MUCH OF A RISK TODAY? WE WILL DISCUSS THAT WITH WHEN WE RETURN. >>AND LAST YEAR, I ATE In NASCAR, there’s
nothing a fan, team or driver wants
more than to be first. First on
the leader board. First out of the pSis. First to
the checkered MYag. In the Nation, being first
/E is just as important. At Nationwide Insurance
we put members first, because we don’t
have shareholders. It’s why the Earnhardt
family has trusted Nationwide /C for more than 35 years. (woman)

GAMES EXCITING… EVEN IN A TWEED JACKET. NO■@HE BRINGS 35 YEARS OF
EXPERIENCE… TO EVERY WEEK. SO BEFORE YOU WATCH THE GAMES… WATCH SUNDAY NFL COUNTDOWN SUNDAYS AT 10 ON ESPN.>>THE BACKDROP FOR THE RACE IS STAR, AND IT IS NO SURPRISE WITH ALL OF THE STARS. THAW HAVE COMBINED TO WIN 32 OF THE 34 RACES. KENSETH IS ONCE AGAIN IN THE 18 CAR FOR JOE GIBBS RACING, AND HE IS GOING TO ROLL OFF. AND TODAY IS A WARMUP ACT FOR KENSETH, BECAUSE HIS FOCUS IS CLEARLY ON THE SPRINT CUP TITLE. AND THE NINTH IN THE CHASE, AND KENSETH IS JUST SEVEN POINTS BEHIND JIMMIE JOHNSON. AND THE MAIN EVENT■@MATT, IS TOMORROW, BUT HE IS GETTING EXTRA SEAT TIME TODAY.>>AND LET’S TALK TWO TOPICS, MECHANICS AND PSYCHOLOGY, AND WHICH ONE FIRST?>>I THOUGHT YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT MY GATORADE WHICH IS PINK.>>WELL, WE CAN TALK ABOUT THAT[ AS WELL] AND HOW IM!■RTANT FOR YOU TO GET 200 LAPS OF RACING EVEN THOUGH IT IS IN A DIFFERENT CAR TODAY VERSUS WHAT YOU HAVE IN SPRINT CUP PRACTICE SOME. >>WELL, I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO IT, AND IT BEATS SITTING ON THE COUCH AND WATCHING IT ON A SATURDAY, SO I AM LOOKING TO SE[ IF THE TIRE PUTS OUT ANY MORE RUBBER DOWN, AND WIDENS OUT THE TRACK. WITH WITH E -■ TO GET SOME RUBBER OUT THERE, AND GET A TIRE THAT IS SOFT ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO MOVE AROUND A LITTLE BIT. I’M INTERESTED TO SEE IF THE SECOND GROUP COMES IN, AND I GUESS I COULD WATCH IT ON TV■@ TOO, BUT IT IS G■NG TO BE GOOD TO GET OUT THERE TO MOVE AROUND A LITTLE BIT AND PICK UP A THING OR TWO.>>AND MATT, ANYTHING SHORT OF A WIN, HOW DO YOU GUARD AGAINST GOING INTO TOMORROW WITH A BAD TASTE IN YOUR MOUTH FROM TODAY?>>WELL, I DON’T KNOW. I THINK THAT AFTER, AFTER EVERY EVENT ONCE Y■■ ARE DONE, YOU KNOW, DOWNLOADING AND GOING THROUGH WAT YOU SHOULD HAVE %!DONE BETTER AND GOING THROUGH EVERYTHING WITH THE TEAM, AND ALL THAT, YOU HAVE TO HIT THE %! RESET BUTTON AND GET READY FOR THE NEXT DAY. CERTAINLY WHAT HAPPENS HERE TODAY, GOOD OR BAD, I DON’T FEEL IT AFFECTS ME ON SUNDAY AND SOME PEOPLE THINK IT DOES, BUT I DON’T. AND SO I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO RUNNING TODAY, AND THE CAR HAS BEEN DECENT AND FELT GOOD QUALIFYING EVEN THOUGH IT■.AS NOT A GREAT LAP TIME. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO GOING AND MIXING IT UP WITH THE GUYS. >>GLAD YOU THOUGHT THAT THROUGH. HE STARTS SEVENTH TODA3] DAVE?>>THIS IS THE FOURTH CONSECUTIVE RACE THAT MATT KENSETH HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN, AND THERE ARE TWO SCHOOLS OF THOUGHT OF WHETHER HE SHOULD BE IN THE RACE TODAY, AND SOME SUPPORT IT, AND SOME DON’T. AND WHAT DO YOU THINK?>>WELL, I UNDERSTAND WITH THE SPONSORS AND THE COMMITMENTS, AND THE BIG GOAL IS THAT SPRINT[ CUP CHAMPIONSHIP, AND THE RISK VERSUS REWARD DOES NOT MAKE SENSE HERE. MATT KENSETH DOES NOT NEED THE REPS, AND HE IS NOT A GUY TO LOSE HIS FOCUS, AND HE IS GETTING READY TO TAKE ON WHAT IS MAYBE THE BEST TEAM OF NASCAR HISTORY HEAD-TO-HEAD, AND HE NEEDS TO FOCUS ON THE■UP STUFF, AND THIS RACE TODAY IS A DISTRACTION BASED ON THE WAY THAT MATT QUALIFIED HIS CUP CAR YESTERDAY?>>YES, AND THE OPPORTUNITIES ARE FOR MATT TO DRIVE THE CAR, AND IT EMPLOYS PEOPLE IN THE ORGANIZATION AND THE BUSINESS, AND SO TWO WAYS TO LOOK ATE, BUT HE IS JUST A RACE AWAY FROM WINNING THE BIGGEST TROPHY IN NASCAR. >>WELL, I THINK IT IS A TERRIBLE DECISION BY JOE GIBBS RACING TO ALLOW HIM TO RACE, )■ BECAUSE HE IS SECOND IN THE POINTS, AND HE HAS A CHANCE TO WIN THE CUP CHASE,■■ND I CANNOT FIGURE OF ANY GAIN IN THIS RACE■ TODAY. WHAT IF HE GOES OUT TO CRASH? AND WHAT IF HE HAS A TERRIBLE CAR AND HE IS IN A HORRIBLE MOOD? DO I WANT THE CUP RCE DRIVER IN A TERRIBLE MOOD BECAUSE HE DROVE SATURDAY? NO, I DO UNDERSTAND THE BUSINESS ASPECT OF IT, AND MAYBE THE SPONSOR WANTS MATT IN THE CAR, BUT I WOULD SAY, LOOKING MY GUY IS SECOND IN THE POINTS RIGHT NOW, AND I WOULD DENNY■■AMLIN OR SOMEBODY ELSE LIKE THAT. >>AND HINDSIGHT IS 20/20, AND WE WILL HAVE TO SEE HOW THIS PLAYS OUT. NO QUESTION THAT MATT KENSETH IS AT THE PEAK OF THE CAREER, BUT THAT HOWEVER CANNOT BE SAID FOR EV■$Y DRIVER IN TE ■■IELD, AND ONE SUCH DRIVER IS FOR RAUCH AND AS DR. J■$RY PUNCH EXP■■INS, HE HAS HAD TO OVERCOME A SERIOUS OBSTACLE JUST TO MAKE THE FIRST NATIONWIDE START.>>Reporter: WHEN AN REED WAS DIAGNOSED WITH TYPE ONE DIABETES IN 201a■ THE LATE MODEL DIVISION ROOKIE LEARNED THAT HIS ASPIRATIONS WERE IN JEOPARDY. >>WHEN THEY TOLD ME THAT I WOULD NOT EVER BE BACK IN A RACECAR, THAT IS WHEN IT HIT HOME HOW SERIOUS IT IS. AND NOT SOMETHING TO PUT A BAND-AID ON AND MOVE ON FROM, AND SO UP TO THAT POINT, NOTHING IN MY LIFE HAD HELD ME BACK FROM ANYTHING THAT I WANTED TO DO. >>Reporter: WHAT MADE YOU THINK THAT YOU WOULD FIND A WAY TO GET BACK INTO TH■@RACECAR?>>WELL, MY FAMILY WAS ‘■TTING AROUND AND THEY SAID, WHATEVER YOU WANT TO DO, WE ARE BEHIND YOU, AND I JUST SAID, I DON’T WANT TO GVE THIS UP YET. I START TO OGLE PEOPLE WITH DIABETES WHO RACED, AND I SO I READ ABOUT THIS DOCTOR WHO HAD DEALT WITH THIS, AND SHE SAID, [ HOW BAD DO YOU WANT THIS? AND I SAID, I WANT TO DO THIS MORE THAN ANYTHING IN MY LIFE, A AND SHE SAID, ALL RIGHT, THEN. >>Reporter: AND SHE PUT HIM ON A TOOL TO HELP HIM WITH HIS PHYSICAL TOOLS. >>I HAVE A GLUCOSE MONITOR IN ■ THE CAR, AND IN THE RACE, I WILL SIP ON A DRINK THAT WILL GIVE ME SUGAR, AND IF I NEED INSULIN, I WILL GIVE MYSELF AN INSULIN SHOT AND KEEP ON RACING.>>Reporter: THIS YEAR AS RAUCH RACING DEVELOPMENTAL DRIVER, RYAN EARNED THE TOP TEN FINISH IN RICHMOND. WHAT A STORY THE KID AT 16 IS. AND IN 2014, THREE YEARS AFTER THE DIAGNOSIS, HE IS GOING TO RUN FULL-TIME IN THE NATIONWIDE SERIES FOR RAUCH. WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST FEAR IN THE RACECAR?>>I’ DIABETES AND I DON’T LIVE IN FEAR OF IT. I KNOW THAT WHEN I COME UP TO THE RACE, I HAVE FOLLOWED THE NUTRITIONAL PROGRAM AND I’M NOT WORRY ARED, BUT LIKE ANY OTHER DRIVER, I WANT TO WIN, AND NOT WI WINNING IS MY BIGGEST FEAR. >>Reporter: WHAT’S THE MESSAGE THAT YOU HOPE TO SEND WHEN YOU DRIVE BY AND PEOPLE WATCHING AT HOME■■EE IT SAYS, DRIVE TO STOP DIAB■(ES ON THE SIDE OF THE CAR?>>WELL, I WANT TO BE A■■OICE THAT SAYS YOU CAN STILL ACHIEVE AND CHASE YOUR DREAMS. A LITTLE GIRL WALKED UP TO ME, AND SAID, I STARTED DANCING AGAIN, BECAUSE Y■■ INSPIRED ME NOT TO GIVE UP ON IT. WHEN I WAS DIAGNOSED I QUIT DANCING, AND I DIDN’T THINK THAT I COULD BECAUSE OF THE DIABETES AND YOU HAVE INSPIRED ME TO KEEP ON GOING.)■ AND THAT WAS A WIN. >>AND A REMARKABLE STORY THAT YOU CAN SEE RYAN REED THERE READY TO BE INTRODUCED TO THE FANS HERE AT THE PHOENIX INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY, AND GENTLEMEN, AS WE ALL KNOW, THIS IS A DIFFICULT SPORT TO DO EVEN AT 100%, AND WHAT DO YOU THINK [ OF RYAN’S SITUATION?>>WELL, IT IS GREAT. GREAT, MIKE. AND IT IS GREAT THEY HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY TO MONITOR THE PHYSICAL CHANGES THAT THIS YOUNG MAN UNDERGOES, AND TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE OF THE PHYSICAL EXERTION OF A REGULAR DRIVER AND VERSUS WHAT HE HAS AND TO ADDRESS IT AND KEEP HIM RACING AND IT SAYS TO PEOPLE THAT YOU CAN OVERCOME A HANDICAP AND STILL COMPETE AT A HIGH LEVEL. IT IS GREAT.>>IT TELLS ME A LOT AUT THE YOUNG MAN AND THE INTESTINAL FORTITUDE TO OVERCOME THE DIFFICULT DISEASE BECAUSE OF THE METABOLIC SYMPTOMS MIMICS BEING THIR’■Y,■■ND SO TO PUT HIM■N THE 110 DEGREE RACECAR AND TO GO OUT TO GET AFTER IT, I’M IMPRESSED. >>I AM HAPPY FOR HIM TO OVERCOME IT AND UNDERSTAND IT, AND GET IN THE CAR AND LIVE THE DREAM. HE UNDERSTANDS THE LIMITATIONS, AND IF HE IS FEELING A BAD OUT THERE HE HAS TO KNOW THOT THE PUSH IT TOO MUCH. >>AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT STOOD OUT ON ME IN THE PIECE IS HOW BADLY DO YOU WANT IT? AND HE WANTS■T PRETTY BADLY. AND SO, FOLKS, YOU CAN CATCH ALL OF THE ACTION FROM THE PHOENIX INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY AND IT INCLUDES 10 HD RACE VIEWS AND LIVE■■CHAT AND LIVE LEADERBOARD.
