NASCAR RACING IN SONOMA 🏁 2019 TOYOTA SAVE MART 350, Q&A WITH MARTIN TRUEX JR, DRIVING A TUNDRA


Hey everyone and welcome back to another
vlog. Today we’re at the Toyota Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway. This is my second
year attending the event. This year I’m a guest of Toyota. I’m super excited, they
loaned me the CHR, you’ll have seen a couple clips in the intro of this vlog
showing the car and having a blast driving around the city, but Toyota
always has a really big presence at this race every year and we’re looking
forward to it. It’s gonna be an exciting day, it’s about 7 o’clock, we just got here, the gates opened, and we’re gonna go pick up our hot passes so we can like walk
around and then we’re gonna go meet the team, and then 10:15 I’m actually driving
around the track in a Toyota Tundra with a race car driver in the back who’s
gonna be waving at the fans, so I’m super stoked, and it’s gonna be my first time
actually driving around the track, I’ve been on the track hundreds of times, cars,
motorcycles, you name it, but never the one driving so this should be fun. We’ll
be going really slow of course but yeah I’m super excited for the opportunity, so
let’s go places! So it is 8:00 a.m. and they’ve just
opened the garage area we’re taking a walk to get some pictures. So we have made it to the VIP
hospitality suite with Toyota. Martin Truex Jr. is actually gonna come out
for a Q&A very shortly and then we’re heading down to the track to drive
around, I’m so excited, it’s gonna be fun and after our drive around the track I’m
excited for a glass of wine because that’s how we do racing in Sonoma County! So getting closer to the playoffs, do you feel competition’s amping up? Or do you feel like it stays pretty consistent all year? I would say that in general I mean it’s kinda always the same, it’s always really
like a 10 out of 10. I mean, competition is always tough. I think that the biggest thing that we look at as teams is how do we continue to improve our car. In a year
like this year 2019, all brand new rules from last season, so you know as we go
through all these races, guys are learning, guys are building their cars different,
they’re getting faster so you can’t, no matter how many races you’re winning,
can’t stop pushing, you can’t say our cars are great and
everything’s perfect. You’re always looking for more, you’re
always trying to get better in every aspect of your team, in your car, in your
driving, and all that stuff.
