This is Stu Epperson from the Truth Talk Podcast, connecting current events, pop culture, and theology, and we're so grateful for you that you've chosen the Truth Podcast Network.

It's about to start in just a few seconds. Enjoy it, and please share it around with all your friends. Thanks for listening, and thanks for choosing the Truth Podcast Network. This is the Truth Network. Have you ever seen a monster truck with a mohawk? Here comes Great Cliffs Mohawk Warrior.

What's up guys? Bryce Kinney here, driver of the Great Cliffs Mohawk Warrior Monster Jam Truck. Welcome to the Christian Car Guy Radio Show. Live Like Warriors today on the Christian Car Guy Show. Yes, today on the Christian Car Guy Show we are gonna try to, with God's help, Live Like Warriors with Bryce Kinney. He is the amazing monster truck driver of Mohawk Warrior itself. And so, I don't know how you've thought about this much lately, but it's an amazing thing.

How does a Christian, how does a Christian live like a warrior? As John Eldridge puts it, right, ours is a great love story that's set in the midst of a great battle. So welcome, Bryce. Oh, a good John Eldridge quote. That just starts us off in the right way. I love that. That's good. Thanks for having me on here. I love the show. I told you I was actually on it maybe five or six years ago with when Andy Bowersox was filling in for you. And I've just always been a big fan, been a listener as well.

So it's an honor to be here. So man, like you are like this monster truck. If you're not familiar with that idea, okay, these are these trucks. They jump like cars. They do backflips.

These things, they steer the front and rear tires. They have like 1500 horsepower? Yeah, 1500 horsepower is powered by a 540 cubic inch Merlin block.

So it's essentially a big block Chevy, methanol powered. And man, it's amazing that I get to say that's my job is driving a monster jam truck that weighs 12,000 pounds, 12 feet tall, 12 feet wide, doing backflips for a living. It's pretty cool. And it has a Mohawk. It really does if you haven't seen it.

And it's sponsored by great clips, which makes perfect sense. When you see this, it's something to see. So again, we're wanting to go somewhere really meaningful with his show because he's got a big event coming up. There's no doubt about that. We're going to talk a lot about that.

But that idea of live like warrior is something that we all get a chance to embrace all sorts of different ways. So today's show, as you might guess, is brought to you by the Hebrew letter. And today's Hebrew letter is Avav, which the letter Avav is really a really unbelievably cool letter in that it connects heaven to earth. A lot of people might call it Jacob's ladder. But another thing Avav does if you study Hebrew is it can change something from present tense to past tense. And it's almost like a hook.

It connects two ideas. But what a cool thing that it's a very eternal letter, which is extremely important when you realize that it's the third letter in the infallible name of God, which is the one that's normally translated Lord or Yahweh. It's Yud-Heh-Vav-Heh. And so I don't know if you've ever heard this, but there's an ancient teaching on the whole idea of these two heys that are in God's infallible name, right? You hear it, Yud-Heh-Vav-Heh.

So Robby, why did you make this show sponsored by the Vav? Because I'm giving you the connection between the two heys, which the letter hey, if you were to describe it in English, you say it almost every time you see somebody like Grayson sitting right there. I could go, hey.

Hey, Gray. You know, so it's sort of a universal expression. And so when you think about God is expressing himself through his word, that's what a hey is. I mean, God's going to express himself. And so you express your faith, whether you realize it or not, and you've got faith in something.

And whatever it is you've got faith in, you're expressing that. And so the story of actually Leah and Rachel, if you turn to Genesis 29, 16, it's an amazing little thing where it actually just describes that Laban has two daughters. And it says in the older one was named Leah and the younger one was named Leah. I mean, Rachel, excuse me, the older one was named Leah, the younger one was named Rachel.

And that word that is translated the older one has two heys in it. And it has long been taught that those two heys are very much connected to God's name and that the older daughter, Leah, was a very, you might remember she had weak eyes. And the reason that they teach that she had weak eyes was she was very sensitive to the sun. Her skin wouldn't allow her to go out in the sun. And she couldn't go out in the sun because of that. And because of that, she had to sit in the tent.

What'd she do in the tent? She studied and she prayed. And she had a tremendous internal life of faith that she spent inside. Her sister, Rachel, right, she was, if you're making the comparison, the later hey, she had a very external faith. In other words, she was the one who kept the sheep and those kind of things. And she ended up, you might know, meeting Jacob first. And Jacob fell in love with her.

And she was a very spirited individual. And she had a very external life, right, in that she did things on the outside. So when you compare this to all of us, you have a very internal life, faith life. Where you meet with God, where you pray, where you study the Bible, that's kind of between you and Him inside. Nobody knows what's going on in there, but you know what's going on in there.

And then you have an external. It's almost like the difference between faith and works. Like, what do you do with that faith?

Are you a warrior? Are you applying what it is that you know to every situation that you come in and those kind of things that has to do with that second hey and see the vuv marries the two? See, because from my standpoint, I'm sure it's yours too, Bryce, right? That without your faith, that that truck is going to do what it's supposed to do, right?

You wouldn't be stepping on the gas. Yeah, yeah. And belief only is not enough, right? And to your point, I mean, I think that one of the hardest things in the Western church is, I think when we hear the word faith, we think of belief only, or we think of salvation only. But I don't see Scripture using faith as just belief only or just from a salvation to describe salvation.

It's what you're saying. It's that outward expression of what you believe. And I think that there's not only just the power of God that operates in our lives through faith, just like you're saying, it's belief in action, in action. Maybe that's a way to say it. It's not just belief and action, it's belief in action. And that's where I think the power of God can really be unleashed.

Right. And so you got 1,500 horsepower that's underneath your foot of this, or maybe it is not underneath your foot. Do you have an accelerator pedal on that? Yep, yep. Just a gas pedal on the throttle pedal on the right foot and brake on the left. And so I don't know if you've thought about it, but your faith, according to Jesus, you can move mountains. So it's a lot more than 1,500 horsepower that's under your foot, depending on what you believe, right?

Yeah. And so I really don't have a sense of this, and I want to tell this story that explains it to me to some extent. So I have two siblings. I myself am 67 years old. My brother, my little brother was 64.

My older sister is 71. And I started praying for them both as soon as I came to Christ about 1991. And I'm actually very faithful in my prayer life. In other words, every single morning, like my mother, I would pray for my family.

That would be part of what I would do. And I really wanted my sister Cindy to come to Christ, and I really wanted my brother to come to Christ. And I really knew Jesus could do it. I really knew God could do it.

I knew that it should be. But I've got to be completely honest, man, I didn't really think it was going to happen. I mean, I had some level of faith or I wouldn't be praying, right?

Just so you don't feel like, you know, what are you doing? You know, you must have had great faith. No, it wasn't like that, okay?

It just wasn't. But nonetheless, I prayed and I prayed. Well, actually, last spring, not long before Easter, because we're actually working on our Passover celebration that we do, my sister called me, freaked out, felt like she was being possessed, and wanted some relief that she felt like in spending time with me, she could get some help. And I began to pray with her. And this went on over a period of two or three weeks to where I literally had a chance to pray with her to receive Christ over the phone. And then you've never seen such a transformation. I have to tell you, she began to just thirst for the Word of God and read her Bible and study and her faith. I mean, she calls me all the time.

We have had a pretty tumultuous relationship over the years. Oh, if what we have enjoyed for the last two years goes beyond, I just can't even believe it. I can't believe it. But I saw it with my own eyes and it was like, I had something to do with it because I know I was praying. But then it happened. Later that fall, and you might know the story of my little brother and the bear, he brought his grandson to my boot camp.

We do a John Eldridge boot camps with Masculine Journey every twice a year. And that happened. And guess what? He too came to faith. And a result of Cindy's faith, her son has now got this pathway to God that we haven't seen from him. And actually, my brother's grandson came to the boot camp. He also got saved as running a Bible study. So, like, man, even though you may not know you're living like a warrior, let me just tell you, we got your stories coming up when we come back.

So much more and stay tuned. Live like warriors today on the Christian Car Guys show, and we're so blessed to have Bryce Kenny with us, the actual driver of the monster truck Mohawk warrior. But there's all sorts of reasons he's here with us today, one being that there's this amazing event that's going on in Kernersville, but also so you can call in and share your story today. I'm very anxious to hear what is your story where you lived like a warrior and how God just blew your mind with the little bit of faith that you had when you stepped on the gas pedal of that over 1500 horsepower that you have when you speak things out of your faith. Like what does that look like for you? 866-348-7884 is the number to call in and share.

866-348-7884. And Bryce, your story is along those ways, like a lot of people probably wondering then how do you end up getting a job like, man, you're a monster truck driver. How did that happen?

Yeah. How in the world do you get a career in this, right? I ask myself that every time I'm in the truck and in front of 50,000 people. Uh, but what's so cool is, you know, I believe it or not, I, I went to school. Actually, we didn't even attend Campbell University together. I hosted a kid named Morgan Kane, who, if anyone's a fan of the sport, he eventually would become one of the gravedigger drivers.

He grew up with the Anderson family. I hosted him on his soccer recruiting trip. I ended up after Campbell, I ended up getting, uh, my, my top fuel drag racing license. And, and that was my really big dream. Well, then when we got out of drag racing, um, I kind of went into corporate America, but Morgan found out about it and he said, Hey, you need to talk to monster jam. And I thought, okay, you know, I'd never even really, I had never been to a monster truck event at that point.

I never grew up with, uh, you know, the die cast trucks in my room or any of that. My whole world was drag racing. And so I eventually would talk to monster jam. They said, Hey, the timing's not right though.

If it's ever right, we'll give you a call. Four years later, I was, I was knee deep in my corporate career. I was, I was taking a whole different path because I, after I left drag racing, I looked at my grandfather who is the pioneer of, of our drag racing, I guess, uh, legacy we'll call it as a family.

And I said, look, don't keep this stuff for me. Like if, if, if it's meant to be then, and if I have to work for the next 40 years of my life and get back into drag racing down the work down the road, and as a team owner, I'll do that. Right. I knew at that point in my life, I knew I was called to motor sports. And so, uh, I didn't know when I first talked to monster jam that it would even be right. I was afraid that you, sometimes you, you know, you can let a good thing keep you from the great thing. And I wasn't sure what the good or the great parts were. Right. I didn't know if monster jam was just a good thing that could be a distraction from this corporate career that I was now committed to, to eventually go and rebuild this, uh, where I was now a team owner. And so I was, yeah. When you listen to the two, just by the way, let's see monster jam corporate career.

It's corporate career sounds better. Like what's monster jam. Yeah, but, but actually God had big plans. Yeah. Well, and so when monster jam finally called me back, they called me four years after that first conversation I had with them, they said, Hey, timing is better for us.

Is it still good for you? And I thought, well, I don't know if it really is. They said, well, we'll, we'll, we'll send you up to monster jam university, which is a real place probably. And I kind of laughed. I said, okay, well, what does that look like?

Honestly, my first thought was what's it going to cost? Because I had seven different jobs at one time, funneling into my career in top fuel drag racing, trying to make that work. And I don't regret any of that work at all.

Right. I loved it. That was a, it was a labor of love. And so, but that was my first thought when they said, Hey, we want to bring up to monster jam university. And, uh, he said, uh, he said, no, no, no, we, you know, I mean, we'll take care of it. And my response was so just a, like a flight in a hotel. Cause you know, I was getting excited thinking, man, this is, that might cost me under a thousand bucks and I can go up here and have this experience. And the guy kind of paused and he said, no, we can buy you a flight and we have a hotel. Can you get off of work and come to Paxton, Illinois?

I said, of course I can. Who would say no to that opportunity. If you got a call to go up and essentially do an all expenses paid trip to learn how to drive a monster jam truck. So I jumped all over it. And honestly, I did not think it would go anywhere. I just thought I would be in a Buffalo wild wings one day and, and monster trucks would be up on TV and I would get to nudge a buddy and say, dude, 10 years ago, I got to drive one of those things and just tell the story.

So I didn't think it would go anywhere. And here I am, I'm in my eighth season with monster jams, seven years now being a full time, uh, in monster jam, left my corporate career a year after all, after that story that I just told. And, uh, man, it's been a wild ride. Uh, it has, and again, the faith right to, to, to take that trip.

Yes. Well, and then I tell you my biggest, the hardest, the hardest part, the biggest faith decision I made was actually leaving the corporate job. And so I was working downtown Greensboro, uh, I was in executive recruiting. So I was placing CFOs and CEOs in the private equity backed companies and I loved it. And it was very, you know, it was very lucrative and it was a, there was a pathway there to become a team owner.

And get back into drag racing eventually. And so to leave that behind, I really struggled. And I remember I was in my garage and I was looking around and I was on the phone with somebody. I wasn't even talking about this decision because I had the opportunity at that point, when great clips came around, they, they wanted me to be the driver. They had chosen me and I kept telling monster jam. No, I told them no three times that I was not willing to make that jump. And they came back again and they said, look, they've chosen you.

How can we make this work? And so I was on the phone with somebody walking around my shop and it was in that moment. I looked around and I looked at all of the different, uh, the memorabilia and the pictures that were all around my garage, my shop area. And every single one of those pieces of memorabilia was some memory, something to do in racing.

I didn't have a single picture up of some CFO I placed. Right. And so I got off of that phone call and it was a reminder in that moment that God has called me to the motorsports world, to use the platform of motorsports, to make an impact on this world. And for his kingdom.

And I got off of that phone call I was on and I called monster jam right away. I said, I'm in. And so I could believe that I wanted to be used for the keynote of God through motorsports, all I wanted, but at some point that faith decision, it requires an action for us, some sort of action to be able to act on that belief. It's not about salvation. It's about being used by God. And God is requiring us to act on that belief.

And that is what faith is in my opinion. Yeah. And you've got a new test coming up because you've got your first book, which takes a lot of faith to go, that journey is completely different than, and you're stepping on a new kind of gas pedal.

And this one's called geared for life, right? Making the shift to, well, we're going to talk about that when we come back, but we need your story. Your stories are what make this show always for me.

I haven't heard from anybody. I want to hear from you. Eight, six, six, three, four, eight, seven, eight, eight, four. Again, you have no idea how you could impact so many people with your story.

Eight, six, six, three, four, eight, seven, eight, eight, four. So much more Christian car guys show, not to mention the event that we're going to explain coming up, you're listening to the truth network and truthnetwork.com. Live like warriors today on the Christian car guys show. We're looking for your call on how does that play out? We've heard from Bryce, we heard a little bit from me.

How did that play out in your life that you live like a warrior? Eight, six, six is the number to call in. Eight, six, six, three, four, eight, seven, eight, eight, four, eight, six, six, three, four truth. And before we get into this event that's actually coming next Saturday to try at Baptist Church, we'll get into that.

But before we do that, I just want to highlight something you said that just flipped my switch. Like, a lot of people are out there trying to see, you know, what is it that you want me to do, God? And the interesting thing is, I really believe He embedded it in your heart from the time you were born. There's something that, like, when you look around your heart, when you look around the pictures of your heart, you know, you may not have the pictures on your wall, but their pictures are in your heart, right? You know, what are those?

You know, in your case, they were motorsports. In other cases, they may be great books. Maybe you're a writer, or maybe you're a fisherman, man. That there's, let's just face it, there's a big deer head on your wall. You know, like, whatever that is, okay? Like, God put that in there. And for good reason, because He knows what makes your heart come alive. And I love that quote, I bet you've heard it, too. You know, don't ask what the world needs, you know?

You know, find out what your heart makes your heart come alive and give the world with that, because what the world needs is wholehearted people. Oh, that's good. Yeah. Well, and you talk about being purpose-driven.

You know, we talk about that all the time, right? How to find your purpose. And people are like, well, if I knew my purpose, I would live it. And I'm a big believer, if you equip your passions, you'll find your purpose. You know, a lot of people don't, you know, they're waiting on their purpose just to show up in a handwriting on the wall.

It doesn't work that way. You know, if you go back and look at the, I call them breadcrumbs. I think our passions are breadcrumbs back to God. You know, and if we really do look at the passions that we have, what you're saying, Robbie, and if we equip those passions, if I'm passionate about motorsports, then I'm going to become, I'm going to equip myself.

Maybe it's either on the business side, or maybe it's on the mechanical side. I'm going to get the knowledge and the know-how to be better in that passion. And nine times out of 10, I see people find their purpose every single time when they equip their passion. And I love, again, we were talking about your book, right? And this idea of geared, right? And so just share a little bit about that first chapter. Like, man, that's awesome.

Yeah, well, and that's actually how this warrior rally that we're doing next Saturday started. Because, you know, I wrote this book and it's funny because I would have said two years ago, look, I'm not a writer. I got on the call with my publisher and I said, look, guys, I'm not a writer. I love to speak. I love to do public speaking. It's just something I feel God's pleasure when I'm on stage.

Not because I'm up there on stage, but because God, he always delivers the message and I get a kick out of it, right? Whatever he's saying. And so, you know, my publisher said, hey, well, we got to think about a book launch event. And I thought, okay, well, what's that even look like? And they said, well, you'd be on a Barnes and Noble somewhere and wait for people to walk in and get your books on. I'm like, I'm not doing that. I said, I've got a whole chapter in here about being built for other people, you know, and that's a gear, that's a foundational belief for me.

I said, so why don't we practice what we preach and actually do the biggest pediatric cancer fundraiser and benefit that the triad has ever seen? Well, that's really what the book is about. It's about being geared for life. And when I look at my life, it's all been guided by seven gears of mine.

And those are my, my personal foundational beliefs. And, and, and to me, it's, it's just like, if you think about the analogy of a truck going down the highway, it might be in fifth gear on the highway. Well, then he takes the exit and he comes up to a mountain path. You know, you're not going to stay in fifth gear.

You're going to shift down into first. Well, life is the same way. Life doesn't have just some secret formula. And all of us wake up at some point in our lives and go, is this really it? Like, is this all there is to life? You know, here I'm 65 years old.

Haven't done, I haven't lived near the life that I thought I would, or maybe I'm 21 years old. And I don't know what I'm supposed to be majoring in, in college. I've got no life direction.

And we want all of the answers. Life isn't about the answers. It's about knowing what our gears are, our foundational beliefs and knowing when and how to shift into each one at the right time. And so the very first chapter is about becoming purpose-driven, right?

And the second chapter is about becoming built for others. I mean, when you think about these, these foundational beliefs of ours, that's when you don't get stuck. If you know how to always stay in motion, and here's what I've learned. A lot of people, they might be in first gear.

Of course, some people feel like they're in neutral, right? We're just going to get you into first, but they think that I'm going to shift from first to fifth. I'm going to get all the right answers. I'm going to figure this life thing out. I'm going to be become an impact. I'm going to live like a warrior today and go from zero to a hundred miles an hour in two seconds. I'm gonna go from first gear to fifth gear. It doesn't happen that way.

It's just sometimes you just have to find your next gear. And so I wrote this book because I finally realized, you know what? I'm not the guy.

If you want to, if someone walked up to me and said, how do I become an Olympic athlete, gold medalist? I don't have a clue, right? But I can help somebody get unstuck. And I can say, you know, our goal with this is not to get all the answers and solve everything in your life. It's to just find the next gear. And every single time I've realized when I'm sitting down with somebody, that's not only what they can believe for, but again, what we talked about earlier, the faith all of a sudden says, I can do that. Now all of a sudden the action comes back and supports their belief. So when they realize what they believe, they can take those foundational beliefs, those gears, take that into life and actually start living the life they've always wanted. Which leads to a great question for a monster truck driver.

What gear, like if you're going to climb over a car, the biggest barrier you can think of, what gear do you use? Oh yeah. Well, you know, it's quite literally, you're asking that literally, right? Because you're a cerebral enough guy, Rob.

That might've been like some theological question. Well, we, we, we have, uh, uh, uh, two speed power glide transmission, uh, attached to that five 40, uh, big lock motor. And so we, we do most of the runs in second gear. The only time I'm in first is maybe some of the technical moves, but it's really in racing when we launch it off the starting line and we pretty much shift it straight to second pretty quickly.

Wow. Because again, I was thinking about, you know, in life, you know, all of a sudden you're, you're in a cliff, like you've got to go climb that cliff. Like, I don't know, you know, the bill, you know, you know, oh man, my, my, whatever, my car broke down and now I got a $1,500 bill that I had no, you know, and so what a great time to shift down into first to go, okay, God has provided for me. Like I didn't in so many miraculous ways that that's, that's really how I get the faith is, is down there in first gear somewhere where I love the analogy. Well, and even in racing, right?

Just to your point. I mean, if I, if I try to do the whole race pass in that truck with the gearing set up and everything in first gear, right? The first gear just gets the truck moving, right? But if I don't shift a second, I'm going to blow the piston rods out of that thing. And so it's, it's about knowing, Hey, look, you're going to get everything you can out of first, but you know what?

First has an expiration date and you need to learn how to shift into second. And, and then that's when you get into top speeds. And, and people ask me all the time about my Guinness world record run. And so one of the interesting things we, so we set the top speed, the Guinness world record for top speed in a monster truck. So we were the first monster truck in the world to hit a hundred miles an hour. And what was so interesting was we could not build enough power because the gearing ratios and the weight to break this record, we could not hit a hundred. And so I find, I kind of went to our engine builder and I said, look, we're not building the boost. We're not building the stuff.

We're looking at all the schematics and all the data on the computer. I said, let me, I said, I don't think we're using first gear enough. I said, I think I'm shifting it too early. Look at what's going on with the drive speed and how it's affecting the blower would have thought that.

Yeah. Cause I wasn't building more than like 11 pounds of boost. I said, let me hold first gear longer.

I said, I think the gearing and everything will be fine on the top end, but let's, let's just try this. And so I held first longer, a little bit higher and RPMs were a little bit higher. And we, we put that motor right on edge of blowing up and then, but I could feel it. I could feel the motor starting to almost want to let go. And I popped it into second and it was, the motor was screaming, popped into second and just went motoring down the drag strip, trying to hit, go through the speed trap to hit that a hundred mile an hour mark.

And sure enough, that's exactly what happened. We just clicked it over a 100.3 miles an hour. We set that Guinness world record, but it was about using those gears most effectively.

That was the only reason to maximize that effort, to be able to break a world record. But you're putting it all together because, you know, for those of us would be race car drivers, you know, we used to have these, uh, turbo Trans Am. They did away with a 400 turbo, you know, like, I mean, 400, 455 big block engines.

Yep. And all of a sudden we got these little block turbos, which were like, what the heck is this? You know, it's a 301, whatever with a turbo on it. Right. But what we learned because we didn't know anything about turbos back then.

It was right. If you held your foot on the brake there, they made a Trans Am one year that had three lights that showed the boost and the little thing right under the hood right there. And you'd see it go with the first light, second light, third light. So if you had your foot on the brake until you got that third light of boost and then you took your foot off the brake, it would light up the back end. I mean, it would, it's so essentially. Right.

You are using the boost to the turbo to get that extra speed in the lower ranges to get you to a hundred fat, you know, right. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. Because, you know, I think a lot of us go through life feeling very burnout. Right. And we feel like we're stuck and we just are, we don't know what direction to go.

And what we realize is, man, maybe it's just been a long time since you shifted to the next gear. Well, man, I love that. You know, you've got to admit that that sounds like fun.

Yeah. And again, the neat thing is if you live in this area, right, we've got this event. It's coming to Triad Baptist Church next Saturday. It starts at 9 AM and they got Bryson's all over this thing and raising money for pediatric cancer families. Yeah, man, we're going to go fill a bunch of needs.

And that's what we've been doing for seven or eight years. We're going to have a lot of fun next time. We've got more about that and we need your story. I can't believe nobody's called. 866-348-7884.

866-348. They must all be gravedigger fans. Oh, no, no. You're listening to the Truth Network and truthnetwork.com. Have you ever seen a monster truck with a mohawk? Here comes Great Cliffs, Mohawk Warrior.

Live Like Warriors today on the Christian Car Guys show. And that song by Sean Householders on YouTube has over 50 million views. I find that fascinating.

It's a very hardcore warrior song. Like, it is. And I love that his eyes are steel and his gaze is long.

And they show this guy looking when you watch the video, this guy's looking through a scope, right? And this is about how truly, when you think about your loved one, it's life and death for them. I mean, we talked about my sister and my brother earlier, but we're talking about an eternity in hell, right?

And so this is serious, serious, serious business, but it's interestingly a serious business in love. So, you know, it does take a long gaze and a steel eye on what it is that you feel like, God, you know, you're the only brother they have. You know, you're the only sister they have. You know, you're the only father that they have. And so one place I know, I mean, there's a lot of different things you could say, whatever, but I know that it's God that's going to change their heart.

It's not me, right? And so that prayer that you say with your gaze is long. I mean, it's serious stuff, and I don't want to miss out on that as you think about how you can live like a warrior this week. But another way you can do that is obviously putting your feet to the event, right, that's coming up at Triad Baptist. It's coming up next Saturday. And so you guys have, oh my gosh, I saw that it seems like there's a whole schedule. Like there's a car show. They're expecting over 300 cars. Yeah, we might have more.

We might have more like 600 or 700. It's a Cars and Coffee event that morning. So from 9 to 12, and we've got a ton of really great cars coming just to come and hang out and support the day.

And so that's from 9 to 12 o'clock. And then we've got live music all afternoon. So I separated them out because, hey, if we have a big old crowd in that afternoon, we'll clear out the lower parking lot at Triad Baptist Church and free that up with some parking. And the Kernersville Police Department appreciated that effort as well.

So we tried to navigate a little bit of traffic as well. But my monster truck's coming up. So that was an act of Congress to get it up here from Florida. A lot of people think it sits and lives in my backyard, but it does not. It sits at Feld Entertainment, which owns Monster Jam.

And they're just outside of Tampa. And so to get that truck up here, I've never had it up here. I did a private event with Wesleyan Academy where I graduated. And that was five or six years ago, I think.

But I've never done a public event where people can just come and hang out. But I got to say, yes, the truck is there. And it's going to be awesome. But Dennis Anderson is coming. Dennis Anderson is the gravedigger.

He started it 43 years ago. His two sons, Adam and Ryan Anderson, are two of my best buddies in the sport. They're coming because they want to support the day and be with everyone and just take pictures and sign a bunch of autographs. But everything is building to that night because we're having a night of fire revival. And we've built everything saying, we want to give people an experience. And we want to celebrate these warriors, these little pediatric cancer warriors that are going through a tough time and show people, hey, you can affect more families than you realize. You can help us help more people. Get off the sidelines and join us with the Live Like Warriors. It's my warrior chain, which is essentially my volunteer army.

And we go and make coordinated efforts to fill very specific needs. You're not paying salaries out there. No printer ink is getting bought with donations. When someone donates $20 to Live Like Warriors, that $20 will go to a family that really needs it. So we're celebrating these warriors. We're going to inspire people to be warriors themselves and realize I can do more than I realize I can do. And then we're going to introduce them to the ultimate warrior in Jesus Christ that night at our revival. And I've got my favorite worship leader in the world, Braxton Creed, is going to be leading. And I'm going to get up and share a little bit. But our goal is just to not get in the way of what the Holy Spirit is going to do right there in the heart of the Triad at Triad Baptist Church in Kernersville. And man, we're going to have a blast.

But I'll say this, Robbie. I have learned more about events doing this because I've never put on an event before, and it has absolutely kicked my butt in the best way. You talk about stepping out in faith. It's been three months of just saying, God, you better pull this off because, you know, it's beyond me at this point. So how accessible are you going to be? Like somebody wants to meet you, talk to you. You're going to be around in the morning. We're going to be around. So I'm going to be, of course, I'll be there. I feel like I've lived at Triad Baptist Church. I told them, hey, if you guys see a white suburban driving around in your security cameras at 9 p.m. every night, it's me.

Don't flag me. And so but for us to be able to just that day of interact with the public, we're looking forward to that. We're actually doing a general autograph session with Dennis Anderson, which is huge. I mean, he'll bring a thousand people out just because he's there. And so but Adam Anderson, Ryan Anderson, myself, David Ankin, who had the hit TV show Toymakers for a while, the car build show, he's coming out with a couple of his stuff and a couple of his cars.

Got some Bowman Gray drivers coming out as well. So we're just going to have a blast just doing that. But that's from 2 to 3 p.m. is the general autograph session. But we're going to be around and hanging out with everybody. And I'll definitely be there all day. So I can't wait to meet everyone. Yeah, and just like you talked about stepping out in faith, like you got the book is a big part of why you wanted to do this, too.

So you're going to be actually that's the autograph signing. You're hoping people have your book. Well, I'll have my book out there. I'll be honest, the book has become secondary. You know, it was it was an excuse to throw the biggest pediatric cancer benefit that the triad has ever seen.

So that's that's really what it is. I honestly, I looked at my wife about a week ago and I said, I haven't even thought about what are what are we going to do with the book? Am I are we selling the book?

I don't know. It's on Amazon. People can preorder it right now. And it's just some of those kids going to be out there. No, so so a lot of the children are actually either in treatment or not local, but we do have a couple individuals that are coming that I'm really excited about. Because, you know, even when you walk up and we're dedicating all the different areas to these different kids, we've got, you know, Hank's RC Alley over here where we've got these low C LMT, you know, the biggest and baddest RC machines in the world. I mean, they're they're coming bringing those out there.

People can try those out. But that's, you know, Hank's RC Alley, Ali's showstoppers. You know, Ali was the little boy that we gave a ton of Legos to. And then you got Jazzy's Cafe. We're dedicating the food truck area to her and all those banners that you'll see that's dedicated to these kids. They've got QR codes on them, and that's going to let people go to their stories, right? It's not going to take them to the Bryce Kinney fan page.

It's going to Jazzy's fan page. It's going to their Caring Bridge blog to learn and hear how they've gone through what they've gone through. And just the struggle that they've gone, I guess, not even just gone through, but how they're inspiring other people. So, yeah, it's going to be one of those things where people are going to get to know these kids and their stories. And they will leave inspired.

Absolutely leave inspired. And inspired to pray. Because, again, I was cured from cancer.

You don't know the story, probably. But I had lymphoma, a very serious form of lymphoma a lot of people thought would take my life. And a local pastor here, one of the Presbyterian churches, drove by the dealership where I was working and said, the Lord told him somebody was here.

They're supposed to be healed. And I had come to the Lord about two years before that. So I honestly thought the guy was nuts. Because here's this little guy who says he's a pastor. He's going to put oil on my head and pray for me and all this stuff.

And I'm like, what's up with this dude? So I didn't have the faith right then either to be healed. But nonetheless, I was covered in tumors.

They were all through my skin. But it was God through Pastor Little, right, that his prayer that day, and that Friday was when I was being prayed for. My chemotherapy was supposed to start on Monday. And it did start on Monday.

But I didn't have a single tumor, not one. And who did that? Prayer. God did it, but through prayer. And so by you coming to this event, right, you can get a better firsthand knowledge of who you're praying for, what you're praying for. Again, it's at Triad Baptist Church.

The information is all there at christiancarguy.com, as well as Jesus' labor level, all our stuff. But thank you, Bryce. What an honor it's been to have you. Well, I'm just going to have to come back on, too, because we've got all kind of healing stories that we can go through as well.

That's awesome, man. But it's just an honor to be with your audience. And I hope everyone comes out on the 16th. We're going to make a lot of memories. We're going to make a huge impact.

And that's what it's all about. Oh, we're so grateful. Now, remember, slow down. Jesus walked everywhere he went. Got it all done in 33 years.

And thank you so much for listening today to the Christian Carguy Show. What about the tiny dog? Cat? Owl? Dolphin?

What does the turkey say? Whale? No, whale.

So? Do the giraffe. Giraffe, really?

Okay, giraffe, giraffe, giraffe, giraffe. You're not going to get it all right. Just make sure you know the big stuff. Like making sure your kids are buckled correctly in the right seat for their age and size. Get it right. Visit nhtsa.gov slash the right seat.
