Racing Episode 1

comparing the Army and the racing team.

TONY SCHUMACHER: I bet if you took an Army squad over my team and reversed the roles, they'd be flawless and perfect in each job. They would take a few weeks to train, they'd have to prepare, but they'd also be the same group of people who'd be capable of doing that – I think that's how they are the same.
STAFF SERGEANT – DAVID ROZMARIN: You have a driver in the racing team, we have a driver in the vehicle – now he's not the only one out there doing it, there is an entire crew with him. The same thing with the racing team. You' have the crew chief, that's like the vehicle commander – you've got the individuals out there changing tires, that's the pit crew, similar to our mechanics and our communications officers – the one's who really get us prepared to go out there and fight.
RYAN NEWMAN: It's easy to understand, from the outside, why there's 150 different jobs – or job titles – in the US Army, because every time you talk with somebody or talk with a different soldier, he does something different.
Ryan Newman: "When I'm driving, two people I only ever usually talk to is my crew chief and my spotter. And more often than not I'm listening to my spotter, and it's a 50/50 balance between talking and listening to my crew chief ‘cause I need to know what's going on with the race to understand you know our strategy, our pit window, what our tire cycles are, and things like that."
SERGEANT – DUSTIN WHITE Everyone has their own job, but it all – it's like a, you know, working mechanism – they all have their own cogs, their own pieces – they have to be in the same timing.
RYAN NEWMAN: Our team compared to an Army squad… I will say this – I've never been truly a part of an Army squad, but I can say it's all about teamwork. There's always a sense of leadership, not just the leader, but each individual has to have a sense of leadership.
SPECIALIST – THOMAS CARTER It's not just the guy on race day who's doing the job, it's the mechanics making the machine work. And in the Army, it's the same way – it's not just the tank crew who's shooting the tank – and maneuvering the tank in the field, it’s the mechanics working the late nights to make sure that tank is ready to go.
STAFF SERGEANT – KRISTOPHER SMITH Their main team – at a pit stop, the maintenance guys are right there. Change a tire – quick. Get them back on the racetrack – give them the best advantage to win. And that's what our maintenance guys do for us as well. They give us the best advantage to win the fight.
RYAN NEWMAN: You know it's a lot of focus, a lot of attention to detail – understand respect, trust, be loyal – all the positive words that make a difference.
SERGEANT – DUSTIN WHITE Just like, you know, with the racing, it isn't the driver out there just driving, that's not all there is to it – there's more to it.
SPECIALIST – NATHAN WALTER Whether it be winning a race or accomplishing a mission – there's always moving parts. And, um, everyone has to work together in order to successfully complete the mission.
