stops, i imagine you watch it differently than the rest of us do. >> number one, when you started this, what you do is, of course, you know i change tires myself. so wafts slowing me down? how can i speed this up, you know? so that's what inspires you to improve something is something is causing you a problem. well, let's fix the problem. >> how fast can you change a tire? >> fastest i've ever changed one is about 12 seconds. >> do you ever stop when somebody's on the side of the road and you jump out and change it and get back in your carr? that's what i would do if i was you. >>and no, but ford motor company sent the loaners to jim clark in 1965. they sent it back to england 45 years later and wanted us to go and watch it run. so we go to england and we're in a rent a car and they got these little curbs on the side of the
and they're very narrow. well, those little curbs, my niece was driving the car and she stepped out and got the left front tire. so there we are in england, changing this tire. >> before i let you go, these rings, can you hold those up? i don't know what they are, but you've got some rings there. can you see those? what are those? >> this is the nascar hall of fame and this is the 2011 trefba bane win. >> do you ever take those off? >> only wear them on race day. >> they'd get heavy otherwise. >> yeah. well, you don't want to damage them. >> i love it. congratulations on a legendary career. great to see you this morning. and good luck to you. you got a guy in the ranks. ryan, we're gonna talk to him later. anything won't go ask him? >> it's knowing

to spend the day with a nascar driver. >> 9:30 a.m., casey starts his day. no stroll through the hollers would be complete out autographs. that would be a theme today and every day, really, for casey. >> the fans are great. the fans are what make our sport. >> 10:18 a.m., first time in the garage for the day, first chat with crew chief, followed not long after by first time climbing into the car for the day. 10:27, out of the garage and onto pistol road and on the track for the first time. casey takes his first laps in sprint cup qualifying practice for the daytona 500. 10:52 a.m., back into the garage, but casey never got out of the car. still time on the phone and take a selfie. say cheese. back onto the track to make just one more lap in the first of two practice sessions. 11:31 a.m., the car's back in the garage for adjustments and
autographs through daytona's unique glass window. for the next half hour, it was track, garage, autographs on repeat. 12:19 p.m., finally time for lunch. casey makes a healthy choice. >> after lunch, casey sat down with us for a 20 -minute interview. the guy has racing in his blood. >> i was raised in a race shop and spent a lot of time in the shop and at the race track. it came natural because that's what my family did. >> 1:07:00 p.m., much needed downtime, a little relaxing, watching tv, checking social media on his phone. 1:30, back to work. time for a chat again and these two have a special relationship. hey, stop being yourself. >> no. >> that's a high class rednic right there. >> if you didn't have a good relationship with the crew chief fire and the crew chief would be fired.

the back of a pick-up truck, get into the car and then. 8:36, finally, the green drag drops on the sprint unlimited. 9:00, casey runs up front and clean early on until 9:58 p.m., the 13 cars involved in one of four major crashes in the race. however, casey's team works like crazy through three separate pit stops to fix the car, which they do. 10:08, casey narrowly avoids a final lap crash in overtism to finish a very solid 5th place. he's off to his rv for sleep. his crew cleans up the pit box, the day is done.
the thunderboards >> we need great weather. >> it was freezing cold last year. and this year, it is picture perfect. thanks, buddy, we appreciate it. >> you're very welcome. and again, we spoke on the live show for gdo on friday morning, we were confident of that high pressure being top of the season. we'll pepper enmore scattered chowd cover, partly cloudy as we pawned that. temperatures delightful. slowly coming up through the upper 50s at daytona beach. 61 at melbourne. you see the clouds amy's talking altitude at this time. clouds north of this now, leak into lore lower on down. we'll see that he numbers. by 667 m: with come on down.

that's replaceable. >> what you also didn't see was the number of people behind you coming in for autographs. that's a big deal for you guys, isn't it, to interact with the fans. you don't see that in a lot of pro sports. >> that's what makes nascar so great. the accessibility to drivers is unbelievable compared to other sports. that's what makes us so successful and give the fans a great experience at the race track. there's tens of thousands of people here, anyone with meet a driver, just doing this appearance or here in the fan zone. so i think the accessibility is amazing in nascar. >> grow got started racing with when you were a kid, really, elementary school. who did you grow up watching and who are you now out here racing against that it's gotta be a little intimidating, i imagine? >> well, my dad is who got me into it because he raced also. and so i really looked up to him. but outside of that, i was a big jimmy john's fan growing up a

i mean, it never goes away, does it? >> you know, my reflexes probably aren't quite as good as they were back then, but, you know, to be cool, calm and collected when it counts is most important. >> yeah. okay. >> we asked you before, how many daytona 500s. so let's go down the list. you won three times. go down the rest of your races. >> i won the 400, 3 times, won the 300, 2 times, and i won the 250, 3 times. >> that's amazing. >> that's your lucky number. >> it's definitely a lucky number for me, for sure. >> what is it like to come back here every year and to be here, surrounded by some of the fans who absolutely adore you? >> well, it is really special. it's a great feeling and people want to talk about good old days and good things that happened down to road and bring those
that's basically for me because rec you know, when i had that little crash in poke no, i had terrible memory loss. and so i still do not remember winning the 88 daytona 500. but somebody's gonna say something one of these days that's gonna light that back up for me. >> and you'll have a full memory of that. >> yeah. i won the thursday and saturday and sunday that year. and what i remembered is i won the fishing contest in a lake back there and then we had a big party at park's seafood restaurant sunday night for something. but. >> oh, my god. >> i love it. you remember the good food and the fishin'. what's better than that? >> well, i kind of would like to remember the race a little bit. >> he set a record that year, for crying out loud. >> how do you watch the race? when i watch, i don't know thesin and out. i look at the fast cars. i'm sure you watch it differently than the average fans.

i gotta ask you, though. do you become a race fan like being amongst this crowd? do you find yourself cheering on certain driver? how does that feel? >> yeah, totally. i've definitely gotten into it just from being around it and from my dad's in the car industry and being around cars. so i definitely get a bit competitive and i pick one i'm into and i'm like, yeah. >> do you want to tell us? do you want to share? >> i don't know yet. i have to feel it out. i'm not there yet. >> you can find the cutest one. >> that's not a bad --. >> what's your day like from here on out? >> back to back appearances. >> we just heard them say your name up on the big screen. >> yeah. >> so, you be you know, just meeting everyone and having fun, stuff. i'm excited. >> so when you come back to orlando, what are your i have to go do things? >> yeah, i'm big into like all
