In this episode, Luke & Jed recap the weekend’s events and their potential implications on the 2017 NHRA Lucas Oil Championship races.  Austin Williams won the Menard’s NHRA Heartland Nationals.  Surprise, surprise: this marks the fifth consecutive season he’s won the Topeka event!  Jed & Luke discuss his success, and recap the NHRA divisional events in Atlanta, Norwalk, and Fontana with an eye on how they’ll ultimately impact the 2017 national championships.  They also touch on last weekend’s big buck action at Capitol Raceway and preview the 11th annual World Footbrake Challenge (which returns to Bristol Dragway July 6-9)

This episode is dedicated to guarding our racing operations against theft, and what to do in the event that your race car/trailer/operation is stolen.  Jed & Luke discuss with Brian Cireddu, the well-known and accomplished Ohio No Box racer who recently had his entire operation stolen from a motel near Las Vegas following the Spring Fling Million.  In addition, they touch on various anti-theft devices, GPS tracking and alarms, and insurance options.  It’s not the most fun episode, but hopefully one of the most impactful!  Luke & Jed also touched on what little racing took place over the holiday weekend, highlighted by the Arkansas Footbrake Throwdown and the Spring Run Off at Rocky Mountain Raceway Park in Utah.
