In this edition of “Throwback Thursday,” Luke and Kevin McKenna revisit 2001. Obviously the dominating story of the year came on September 11. The duo discusses where they were on that fateful day, the impacts on their lives, and (on a more trivial scale) the effect of 9/11 on the sport of drag racing. As usual, they break down the biggest stories in the year of sportsman racing: from the NHRA professional ranks, to the Lucas Oil Series, the IHRA and big dollar bracket action.
A little different episode on tap for this weeks regular episode. Luke goes solo on this one! Jed’s “on assignment” at the Spring Fling at Galot, so Luke took the reigns to discuss the happenings in the world of sportsman drag racing. Luke gets the chance to delve into some hot button topics, cheating devices..again, “performance enhancing drugs” and of course some results from the past week. Tune in for an awesome show!
Luke opens this week’s episode with a brief, heartfelt monologue on the sad and troubling times in our country… Then he and Jed completely flip the script for one of the more humorous and enjoyable episodes we’ve had in a while. On the docket: some (gasp) actual race coverage from the SFG event in Iowa! Also, big news from NHRA and Summit Raceway Park. Then, the good stuff… The guys dive deep into their latest top 5 breakdown: the best race car names in history. Follow that with an impromptu trivia time, and and epic list of shoutouts… Let’s just say that it’s worth sticking around ’til the end!
We have a HUGE episode for your listening pleasure! Luke and Jed, discuss current moves to open areas of the country, are we headed for some normalcy? They discuss the Michael Jordan documentary, and finish up with an ever popular Top 5 segment about favorite famous track employees, that we all have run across around the country!
