Would today's most prominent bracket racers have been more successful or less successful in a previous era? What skill set has the biggest impact on success in today's big dollar bracket world, and how has it changed? Jed and I discuss and debate these topics on this week's podcast. In addition, we share some thoughts on the recent major announcements from the two richest events on the 2021 calendar. Listen on ThisIsBracketRacing or wherever you typically find podcasts: Apple Podcasts, Podbean, Google Play, Stitcher and more.
Jed gets the opportunity to sit down with two of the biggest winners of the 2021 season, the SFG $500k winner Todd Arnold and the Loose Rocker $75k winner Soggy Dunn. Both have incredibly unique stories, and it was really interesting to hear how their weekends played out.
Luke and Jed cover some results and happenings from the Houston LODRS, London, KY, VMP, SFG500 (mid-race at recording time), and the Class Racer Revival. The guys finish off with a big product partnership, and of course finish off the "Race Car Names" bracket.
Luke sits down with the winningest driver in NHRA Sportsman Drag Racing history, Dan Fletcher. Their wide-ranging discussion includes Fletch's perspective on how much the sport (and his spot within it) has changed over the last 25+ years, the Fletcher family racing legacy, his biggest triumphs, and his future plans. In addition, Ashley Thompson provides a brief update on the 2021 ThisIsBracketRacing Driver Series (racers at Greer Dragway and Beech Bend Raceway begin earning points this weekend).
