9:34 am
and social secure is an issue and there is talking of changing the benefits and if you are poorer you take the checks earlier and you get a smaller check for a shorter period of time, because you are not living as long. it excuse the thinking behind social security. serving sad. all right, have a great weekend and we'll see you next week. >> enjoy! >> luanne: thank you, you can catch lauren simonetti each and every weekday morning on fbn-am on the fox business network at 5:00 a.m. if you are not exactly sure where to find it, that's okay. head over to finder. it will be an absolutely gorgeous weekend for the big race well, rear due for one, i was out -- we're due for one, and let's go to jayme king live at the daytona international speedway. good to see you, brother. >> jayme: good to hear your voices.

9:36 am
is not dry but not moist enough to produce any meaningful rain, no chance at all. it looks good, our 7-day forecast, even better. solid and mid upper 70s and near 80 toward the early portion next week and we'll see a rain chance and address that and the rest of your forecast, details live from the fishing pier on full weather in a bit. over to you now. >> john: let's talk to more drivers here at the infield. the track, joined by nascar driver brian and he joins us now to talk about it. good to see you. >> amy: brian scott! we'll see you on sunday. >> you are seeing me right now. >> amy: and we'll see you on sunday. and this will be your second time racing. what is it like to race at the track? >> the daytona 500 is neat and cool and i moved over to richard petty motor sports and historic organization at nascar and my

9:38 am
your grandparent started albertson's, and many of our viewers are familiar with albertson's. what is like to grow up with a legacy. >> it is me -- the legacy ies joined at richard petty motor sports and they are a legacy of heritage and that have grown the sports car and, albertson's went public in the '80s and early '90s and actually, might have gone public before that. so, to watch it evolve and watch it become what it was and then to also have the relationship and bring them on board and have a partnership with them is really neat and cool and special for me to be part of my family heritage and legacy over to a storied organization. >> john: was there pressure by the family to go into the family business? how did racing come out. >> albertson's has not been a family business since the -- two generations. it went public and you get the
9:39 am
and my dad sat on the board of directors for a while and resigned the early 2000s. my family was great. this deal was always if i did well in school i could do what i wanted and i got good grades and my dad supported my racing and we raced together, a family hobby, family sport and then -- it snow balled out of control for me and became a passion an obsession and now a lifestyle and a career. >> amy: obviously, things changed a little out here since the last time you were here. what did you think when you drove up and saw how amazing it is? >> the new daytona rising project is incredible! talk about a totally -- total change for the fans and their experience. and all for the better. so neat, the technology and some of the conveniences they bring and the layout of everything i think is great and the fans are going to love the daytona 500. it will be something like
9:40 am
also has all the tradition of the daytona 500. >> john: when you walked up you saw the game going on at the infield with the bats and the beer! how much of that do you get to experience? do you go out and see it and meet with the fans? >> i don't think my team would be happy if i was partaking in those types of activities. >> john: not partaking! >> it is a lot of fun. nascar unlike other professional sports, the drivers are accessible and we got to the infield and cruise around at night see what is going on and say hi. >> john: and, the fans know who you are. >> i'm not nearly as recognizable as some of the guys but every once in a whily i'm recognized and i can fly end the radar and see what the fans are doing. and watch them enjoy the weekend. and the atmosphere and sometimes i still get recognized and, nice to know people know who you are and follow your career and support you.
9:41 am
fact that brian, from idaho thinks it is comfortable right now and i'm wearing a coat and a scarf. >> the difference between idahoan and a floridian. i hope i got it right! >> amy: how can people follow you. >> twitter, instagram, and fan page on facebook. i'm not on snap chat. don't look for me there and come to the race and fly my flag. support and cheer! >> amy: we will. thanks. >> john: appreciate you coming down here today. good luck. >> amy: >> john: the mayor of ormond beach has an extra reason to have fun this year at the daytona 500. his son is performing. right? part of a duo, who will sing at the pre-race concert. we'll talk to the mayor about his famous son from

9:44 am
9:45 am
>> john: florida-georgia line will be in concert sunday and tyler hubbard and brian kelly make up the group and for some of you the name brian kelly may sound familiar because kelly grew up right here in florida. thus the florida part. >> i love it. cool and his dad is actually the mayor of ormond beach. and david martin sat down with his mayor and his wife to talk about their now famous son. >> reporter: no stopping florida-georgia line. half of the duo, brian kelly is the star from ormond beach. kelly.
9:46 am
that came true and i don't know if you can dream something or put it on a bucket list. >> his mom, mary margaret shares the pride. >> we are so proud. he has worked hard and he and tyler and the entire team and we're very proud. >> mayor kelly knew his son had massive talent. just with the lyrics he wrote in college and at church. >> he had some kind of drive to succeed and do that but his writing, his words when i saw those, i said if somebody famous did those it would be a hit. >> mom saw his star potential on the field. >> he grew up playing baseball, comfortable on the mound pitching and doing that sort of thing, you have to be, you know, confident and so i think that was probably this beginning of it. >> reporter: both parent will be at the concert on sunday at the speedway and dad says the new florida-georgia line album is the best yet. >> they think this album will be
9:47 am
this is just a smash. >> and fame brought mary margaret this question from all her friends in town. >> can we see brian? >> reporter: and what do you say? >> sure. you know, when he comes home! >> reporter: he's home often and this weekend, of course on fox. in ormond beach, david martin, fox 35 news. >> amy: like that. i don't know what happened, but it is like somebody threw the jet dryers on hot. all of a sudden. it is windy out here. is it that windy over at the lake? >> john: good morning to you both. this weather is fantastic. i saw them competing with the speaker and doing the weigh-in and the bass tournament is wrapping up and we have bags of fish putting on the scale. i've seen a couple, 4, 5, 6 come by and overall is again a great morning. winds have been increasing all
9:48 am
breezy one for sure today and sunday. 5 to 10. and, again it has been looking good, you know, a gradual baby-step-type process and again warmer air in here but ultimately it should be a real nice day. our satellite up next, showing you again clouds and that is pretty much it. no rainfall until maybe mid-week of next week and hour-by-hour forecast shows 2:00 temps 73 and 59 by 5:00 and 63 by 8:00. and this the race forecast, specifically, as we pull up to sunday, another process of warming, i think race time, 1:00 sunday, close to 75 degrees. and most cases looks like it will pan out and a dandy of a day. as we talk about the national stuff here, the rockies, the low pressure cold front combo that
9:49 am
so the rain chants come up, our 7-day forecast hinting at that and modeling hinting at the increase in clouds and moisture and we'll have to raise this rain stakes on tuesday. behind the system, we're windy and cool things down, 70 by wednesday, thursday, 69 and lows fall back down to the 40s during that time and you see the chance of rain, guys, none whatsoever as you go through the weekend. unlike years past, rain delays and one time a couple years ago we had to cancel and postpone the race and monday night, again we're blessed and back, bright central florida sunshine and the fishing has been good. the drivers and pro guys and anxious lers taking part and, live at lake lloyd, a great morning and send it back to you, john and amy, back to you. >> amy: i don't know if you can
