Yeah. There Browning extreme speed motorsports number thirty in the wc numbered zero through that tutor. And this is pizza. On the back to speed city. I'm pretty excited because. He's got a bunch of young Americans riders and drivers on the show but I wanna talk first and we'll play some clips from Joseph Roberts because. But to re out of the race this weekend was pretty cool because all the racing was really good just because. And we had a summer break and you had a little rain thrown in there is so he has some wet and tries so the weekend is good and of course Marquez camp came out on top. Really was ill that was good variation erasing nearly as hard emerging peer right quick. So it started off and all of that you know start off as a wet race. And so. But just a couple laps into that mark has rolled the dice swamped by X. Jumped out any took off he probably had at least one maybe two laps on most of the guys and you considerably more on others. That set the tone for the rest of the race everybody else. Lagged behind he's stretched out and he made a run for the front it was a really really just fantastic C. Him taking off but it got boring to be quite honest. I enjoyed looking back further into the crook the field with Rossi. But today. Mota to Joseph Roberts this was awesome Alitalia another placing seat for and not kiss on begin sport check out Red Bull TV you get that on your apple device or whatever. But fantastic. Race. Joseph starts off at the very back of the field I mean there's like two people more behind behind him I second he was 29 out of thirty debt 29. And he marches through six laps into the race the downpour happens. The red flag the race and stopper provided they finally did it clear to run again liver in the last six laps. Joseph. Chips away consistently passing somebody on every single lap makes it all way up to the tenth place. So is first time on this bike. And number is one of his favorite tracks is worry won his first 600 race so he knows the track he loves that. And it really came out well this is a complicated track in fact tomorrow with all the turns the what are even more so. Is you've got an elevation change of about 230. Feet over the course this track. Lot to deal with specially in the rain and I you know like you said he saw between ninth and when they restart of the race with six laps to go. He was still 29 so he'd made up all of those in nineteen places in those six laps. It was really fun to watch those when his number was just click and up the leaderboard. And unfortunately the you know the world feed it's not gonna give that much coverage. They might have if they had realized what was going on because it's a great story I mean I. I think may have been. It was just the right rhythm of the weekend promoted to an I don't know maybe for the weekend he was really amazing absolutely imam be biased but that was the best right of the weekend. Well and of course the rest of the race was awesome as well into the but the rest of the weekend and with moto GP because. If you had Marquez. But he is restart I mean his bike swap. Was merely accidental right indeed the tires each shows were really not only wanted to run it so with what to I think in the second lap. He's walked to the slicks and never looked back that's right you know he didn't he really took off in in the whole thing start out great yet all three colors on. On the a front row to begin with the but it shuffled and things are really carries through the rain in the bike changes and things are there words situations one of the by creditors of kid who was Cayman the bike was not ready. And so. But to wrap up give you Marc Marquez on first address the second and Ellis third Rossi made it only backup force through an ugly. Pitt series. Crush slow on fill us. And Adobe took six slew can aggressor buddy awesome turn out fantastic race be sure once said if you haven't yet yet DC media in any crash in the pit lane it looked like cash Alex as far as as forgone. Pulled right. Out right in front and in any place together he did and you know he went down but who. You know jammed on the front brake to avoid an absolute courage inclusion in front tire went out plundering laid down luckily nobody was injured nobody got hit by the bike coming end. He was able to roll over and run up jumper and I was Biden take out. That was a good battle between pitcher chance Burgos of third place to coupled stories like temperature is up he made his way through the field latter stage of the raced to give yellow one too that was awesome. And Evan Gillette we've been talking about Joseph we interviewed Joseph Roberts last week and put it as a podcast. Because look we get an American going back into you know in the world championships and that's coming up. And so he was a little little nervous wasn't sure how well he was gonna do and and Johnson interviewed him and we've got a couple of clips you not I'm letting him two years ago now at the text where boot camp Collins place. And I will say he was a very humble guy very. Methodical. Well spoken and old slave he wasn't like can he go. You know egotistical young kid which it can be easy to be with that kind of talent he was great he a really showed well. Great blitzer couple clips as it was for this first when this is Joseph Roberts. On not on the opportunity get demoted to. The. It's in any case we need to do the next five rounds the world low I figured out. Probably learns the more I go and run it's a brilliant drive here so yeah it's it's amazing to get this opportunity you know is either one of the citizens as a little kid says Teresa Lu. You know the world level of moto GP and I mean it's a start let's everybody starts somewhere so I'm really really excited says to go to brew now. Which is actually one of my my favorite tracks on the calendar and where IA why am I Red Bull Rick Scott race that's kind of special to go there and how my day you'd be there. Yes I heard you know in their cool I was first place he really that big before and here is back in motive to do the same thing yeah and we got Steve we've got a full interview with. To Roberts upon our sound cloud accountable tweet and FaceBook app that right now but here's one more clip from John Roberts. A little play this in because this is some getting a little specific about the transition. Demoted to because he's been doing motor America obviously but he's also been in the Spanish world championship and that's always you know referred to. And and the differ motorcycles and the similarity actually of the motorcycles is the same team that he's raising amounted to. Races in the Spanish world championship so let's hear Joseph Roberts again on the transition about it too. We'll ask the great thing about the national ocean sit here is they basically just use last year's notice to we'll change it bites and the scene racing AG are actually is a world change your team is this is super easy transition for me to go well I say easier go in one of the hardest. Championships and world. Basically it's an easy transition need to go from this my your kids seem to go role models seem because it's less the same guys and the fight is seen not heard Callas in early tomorrow the new by every year by NASA writers you last year's by Nate you know win races though. The bikes and really not different. The tires same Yasser ace ace in basically cracks his fight. Chances to get a feel for before I go to the world level so it's been great. Well this was just so much fun you know unless at less I got up and I didn't I watched murder to live and so guy. I I started playing I thought. I'm gonna watch for Jo Robertson and you know how when they first start playing at its third than play in the motor to show you you'll get like the first top twenty riders church and there. In houses like Al man I wish he could you know do something. And when he started climbing l.s like I was jumping up the downtown into it at the entire house and really exciting to have an American so we're gonna follow Joseph Roberts we're gonna try to get another beat him this week. And so we're going to be following an American in the world championship. And says stick with us this season we're gonna he's got these last five races and he's gonna be he's gonna be fun to watch but. So really transition now we're gonna talk about another. Another young Americans a couple of them actually we're gonna have one of them live on the show here in about ten minutes but we're talking about the the F four US championship. And it just a little background on this in in 2014 the FIA. Launched formula for was to institute creating a a place for young race car drivers or around the world take the first steps from like carting and other if other series like that into world and to open wheel racing. And so this is a worldwide effort and so the United States. In in the USA the SEC April racing all heard that over the years tribal and in that 2015 they teamed up with the FIA to create the formula for United States championship. So these guys are really on the latter to go to. Foreman won this you know potentially as high Formula One and and any other open wheel series. So the inaugural season this new championship was 2016. Last year so there is totaled nineteen drivers in nine seasons. And it was it as a last year we started out and so this year. We've got these guys coming to Austin to come to circuit of the Americas twice. They're gonna be here for the low so a month with the world endurance championship. And they're also going to be at the Formula One weekend so this is really really an amazing series that we get to see here is sort of America's in the desert. These are open wheel cars of the pretty much entry level open wheel cars they're kind of has the same kind of cars you see yet. Like skip barber. Those kinds of places exactly. And you know we've got a fleet of right here at certain Americans and us are gonna get a chance to see those type those will be sticking around long after this race slew of definitely stick around for that great car though exactly everything he's Serb. These cars are limited to between one point six and 2.0 leaders. The smaller displacement in the advantage of turn rose added to room. But already we've seen in my plan and they are. Pretty wickedly fast definitely you know a good place to its competition feet under yeah. And get things rolling with that I'm really excited see the lap times on the east Asian other open wheel car someone if they're gonna be.

Welcome back to speed city thank you Jay Leno. We've been talking about young Americans racing around the globe and power but he's doing so well and we're really excited about this. It's championship this F four championships this. It's being organized around the world and and by FIA and with the the United States version of this coming Dakota twice once. In the world endurance shift chip from the rose from all weekend and then again. During Formula One weekend and these young kids have got to be out of their minds about racing the same weekend. As Formula One and we have one of those young Joba right now in fact. We have the guy who's leading the championship right now lot of room Kyle Kirkwood Kyle welcome to speed city. Yeah. And it. We're so excited to have you because this series is awesome and the fact is your leading the championship that's grey wolf just tell us about your season so far. Well I mean that he's an I have a bit of a downfall in the beginning it was he denied. And into the event with a bunch of penalties and it was village me just trying to fight back from from mid. Packer earlier than mid pack we actually had an engine Dona. And the very first straight so weird it's fighting back and then we went to Indianapolis we knew we have a fast car there. And we ended up sweeping novel weekend. Wedded to use. And we put that also but valid a little bit more tough because we had decoded Dickerson right there with us. Because he came from the USF 2000 championship series and click over to the F floor because they have such a great field and. Well I I'm really excited to have you here at coda I know you've been here at least once before for sure I know but debt how much experience she had a Canada. Well I've been there like you said one armed with a cricket cricket test and I had one day around there are both in the way. It ended the drive so let's look pretty prepared got yet some pretty prepared going into the I think into the two rounds. So unfamiliar with the track understanding their level enough. How intense the track is and there's obviously tons of passing opportunities selloff I think a couple years realized that one captain. I'm going into the ground. While I was after for that testing and one of the things I'll tell you that has changed it's not quite as smooth than there used to be in his character bumps to it now. But it is still flying in the S falls if women seasoned and word having a loot of cars out there in fact we've got some metaphors that are stationed here now also. And I start to come around were anxiously will at times because I was down in the garage trying to prod lap times. And the post of the affords kind of smile I mean that's like they don't understand what I just said. Well we'll Kyra I ask you what if you give us your take on this championship I mean especially from your perspective as a young. What are you eighteen years old as a youngster trying to get into form open wheel racing. Talk about the championship and what's your particular aspirations are. Well for me my operations are hard to go to IndyCar I think for anyone that's running here and you ask that that. The true goal at an open wheel driver it far and present if you're moving over to Europe or something obviously gold up one. Unarmed revered not very attainable to try and go to one if you're only running in America because there's only one American team here and I don't think they're either based out of America. And but overall with the championship the F word championship I think it early in Italy at that a year where we had 33 part of the president's. Does does fusion unit made hang on they're trying to bring out an F three car now they're gone bad and talk about on what it's gonna be. Sure okay let me just let me show page at the last round but I got pushed back I think they're doing testing with the now. I'm not Fisher they're trying to make in lives with them just like the monster that India but except for Honda. Well that's that's really exciting I love the fact that this seems to be really well organized around the globe to of course. And teaming up with the SIA. And I'll I love the fact that there is these there's there's these different types of opportunities yet you mentioned the Mazda road to Indy that's fantastic. But there are other opportunities like this I love that she did you guys have choices. Right yeah exactly so bad apple Leon. And I mean I talked to those army guys and the marquee guys and they both say. Yeah we need each other to compete at an even more the merrier because that we have more people look for. Those sport gaining more recognition the lower level you're getting more recognition and that should help at all in the long run for everyone in the long run. While another had to in a forward in its current reiteration kind of was helped along with the CCA. Let the tears back in their words they came together CCA have played in those events incidents it's a great formidable latter to help you. Get places and now with the four teaming together as it has. It's a true latter arming the do you agree that you can see where your going next and how you're gonna go to India or if you wanted to earlier pass yeah. It it I think that's what was needed I do agree that's what's there now. Yeah I think so I mean they're on the that would put the put a good ladder system yet they're obviously mod he has to. But on its really clearing up and yes definitely started warming true a lot of schism and IndyCar. So college she tells about the car sunny Odyssey where we've talked we've touched on the factor formula cars are open wheel. But tell us about the car specific visit I mean anybody it's considering. As young drivers considering doing this are there and I and good old guys like us we're fascinated with the hardware to. Right the other cars it Shelton who really easy to drive it to great learning this car. It very it's very. Responsive. And until it's got a lot let it go Kart feel posed a great stepping down to just come out of cart into the that's light peak Domonique Harding Geiger. And Don yeah I mean overall a great car and got low horsepower so it solid you can do anything where you're gonna. And off until Lawler an hour or anything like that's really thought he catch and on overall he had been making card thank. Well also I just wanna talk about some of your history in a year obviously his championship and doing well but you've got some pretty amazing accomplishments under the between sixteen team USA scholarship and that is a huge deal and that. That that's a that's says so amazing things about achieve it also. You've done an F 16100 you've done that Bob like image in the mark miles through DNA test. Skip barber series two wins and tons of carting highlights. So I mean do you feel like that they did this is the right place for use the right time. A lot of pressure. And the other hundred did hear that at all I think Cabrera Mauer right now but like I could be. I mean obviously looking at face scholarship last year helped me immensely with driving in everything that all the marketing everything like that. It's that's truly helped me a lot because when we are out there we ran the Walter Hayes trophy. At Silverstone and there was a 120 extraordinary thing in the formula Ford. On the category so I mean you can just imagine their cars going everywhere but they're everyone under control and you just really had. Had to figure out how to maneuver yourself. Through those are the continent up upfront which I think I did a pretty good job that because I had a bullet in the back in. At one of the key races and and period although he created a consolation race and everything like that because I had a I Kraft wanted to hear it themselves between that they thought could really help me out a lot get we're about right now. Or what about you guy I'm thinking about I think we mentioned this coming out of the break but. All these young guys 17161718. Years old.

And then also with the lack and in that Kennedy but Kennedy also made ending a TI dot. Maybe I've heard numbers about a half million people they're carrying out one right about your post you're not letting it back I mean seeing affluent people a great thing about it is that going to be out of this world. Yeah it says. Did tell us how you counter amid since a lot of people two to 300000. People easily. Well I think it's going to be great for the audience for one getting to see the united.

With more teams a classic car. I really do it and that aren't good performance as. It is here. The new car yeah the whole dire obviously. Because of the highest eaten within the moron is this year ended when she makes it very difficult the confidence level. So there's a lot more presence who went in the race last arm. Great job on me. We had a little bit of change and by yeah I'm I'm very confident we're gonna be great places. He finished we are greater. Than our 86.

Seated she Truex and I agreed it's a little genre just you see what's gonna be out there. Dana you had its unity you want accurate B you want to know all Internet formula. Look it's almost like we as you know I'll speak city we've always followed you know the likes of itself and Centene out for a Sheehan and the young up and coming Americans.

I have this and luckily that's when eating all doesn't get better in this army and out. I hope to being a championship like where her long time and it doesn't need. I think envisions may change but only in addition I have right Alice do my best interest in the car and and you get it seems everything got an I can do that then. So we'll take questions for one. Mullah people noticed it used to be teammates with my staff and how do you think you're nobody's doing all along. Questionnaires. And go along so what would you do if you let him next year.
