Forgot to post this from last time….
WE SEE Mike Coury of Team Reynolds Style meekly seated at table facing Jay Lamm. Andy is standing behind Mike for support. JAY (groaning) If you knew those fucking Judges. They're nuts. Especially that Judge Phil. What am I going to do with them? MIKE (sweating) But I'm worried. I'm hearing all kinds of things. Jay. You know me all my driving career. I've always done the right thing. Barely any black flags, Bribing even when we get Zero BS Laps
JAY You think that matters? You think they give a shit about anything? The little bastards still put you in Group A. MIKE But it isn't right, Jay. That Phil, he's making trouble for me all over the Paddock. He put us in group A. I can't compete here. I have 100 fucking horse. JAY You? You think you're the only one? I've talked to them a million times, but they don't listen. MIKE (weakly) But, Jay, please, we only finished 5th. JAY (barely listening) Someday they'll get what's coming to them. That's the only way they'll stop. MIKE (pleading) Jay, I swear, I'm afraid. The guy's nuts. What do I have to do? Whatever I gotta do, I'll do. JAY (arms outstretched like a saint) What can I do? If I could do something, don't you think I would? MIKE looks up at ANDY for support. ANDY (to MIKE) Tell him. It's okay. JAY What? MIKE I was thinking that maybe you could give me a good price. Take a piece off the top. If you were to do say $250, maybe than they'd have to lay off. JAY What, do I need ... MIKE (interrupting) I mean it. We could do good. The car is in one piece, it just needs something, a junk yard turbo, or a new head, something..to make us competitive. JAY You want a residual value? MIKE Please? EXT. Gingerman Raceway - OUTSIDE - DAY WE SEE boxes with turbos, headers, piles of tires, even tools like air guns and large torque wrenches are being unloaded and delivered into the pit. ANDY(V.O.) Now the guy's got a residual value from Jay. Any problems, he goes to Jay. Trouble with the track? He can go to Jay. Trouble with the other teams? Black Flags? Judge Phil? He can call Jay.
ANDY(V.O.) But now the guy has got to come up with Jay's money every week, no matter what. Business bad? Fuck you, pay me. You had a fire? Fuck you, pay me. The place got hit by lighting? Fuck you, pay me. Also, Jay could do anything. Especially buy the car out from under their noses for $500. Why not? Nobody's gonna pay for it anyway.
