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!
Luke is back with Kevin McKenna for Way Back Wednesday. This week, the duo looks back on the year of the Michael Phelps Olympics, David Tyree’s helmet catch, Dan Fletcher’s Competition Eliminator domination, Alan Johnson’s split with DSR, and Scotty Richardson’s WFC repeat: it’s 2008 in the world of drag racing.
Jed has the opportunity to finish out our 2019 Championship Interview Series with NHRA Sportsman Motorcycle Champion Jim Werre and NHRA Super Comp Champion Ray Ray Miller. Two great interviews with some really interesting guys. Both take us through their racing history and where they came from all the way up to outlining their championship runs!
Justin Lamb, co-instructor on This is Bracket Racing Elite, gets to catch up with Dan Fletcher, in a pretty cool discussion/story time. There are some sketchy audio sections, due to a bad internet/zoom connection, I tried to edit most of it out. Enjoy!
This week, he welcomed NHRA Lead Announcer Brian Lohnes to tell Luke why he’s wrong about his prediction that there wouldn’t be a traditional NHRA national in 2020. In addition to providing some optimism for the proposed NHRA season, Brian weighed in with thoughts about some on-track activity as tracks in some areas of the country begin to open up. The duo closed with both grease monkey and nerdy bookworm fun as well – a little something for everyone!
Luke and Jed are back together this week. Discussing topics ranging from what races are happening, what races are postponed, when are they happening? Then they moved into a fun topic, with all of the Netflix documentary watching going on during these times, the guys discuss which racers they’d love to see a documentary on. They even called in producer Mark to weigh in!
