144: KC Pesnell breaks the Internet!

KC Pesnell broke the internet.  So, we had to talk about the 14-year-old who won $50,000!  In that discussion, Luke and Jed debated whether KC (or any 14-year-old) should be driving a 140+ mph dragster alongside grown men and women at the highest level of our sport.  In addition, Jed put his reporter hat on and broke some news about the situation.  It’s as much of a “must listen” podcast as we’ve ever published! Once we wrapped up our thoughts on that situation, we brought on Rex Simmermaker, host of the “Fast Brackets Podcast”on the eve of the first U.S. Nationals featuring the two fastest pure sportsman categories: Top Dragster and Top Sportsman.
