This episode is dedicated to everything Mickey Thompson Million. Luke & Jed were on hand competing for the biggest prize of the 2017 season. They didn’t win it, but they talk a lot about the man who did: Johnny Ezell. In addition, they touch on some of the hot topics from the Million: the split negotiation, safety equipment (or lack thereof), and the undertone of cheating accusations. No guest this week: Johnny Bracket Racing politely declined to come on (his racing speaks for itself).
This week the guys are recording live from the Mickey Thompson Million in Montgomery, AL. Luke & Jed are joined by the winner of the inaugural Million, TJ Tracey. In addition, they discuss the callouts from Huntsville last week and talk about Jed’s big win at the same event. Plus, they cover results from across the country and give their picks for this week’s Million.
In this episode, the guys discuss new developments in the world of bracket racing: from IHRA’s change in format, to an interesting system of pairing in the late rounds. Luke & Jed are joined by Britt Cummings, as he and Gaylon Rolison announce their new event: the 2018 Dream Team Shootout. In addition, they cover the NHRA action from Oklahoma and E.T. Finals events from the Southeast and the west coast… Plus they agree on a wager for their NHRA pick ‘em contest.
In this episode, Troy Williams, Jr. joins the show to discuss his incredible week… Troy clinched the IHRA Top Dragster World Championship on Sunday, then kicked off the Fall Fling with a win in the 32-car Dragster Shootout. As if that weren’t enough, he capped the week with a $50,000 triumph in Friday’s main event! In addition, he tells a few stories about his early years at the track, plus Luke & Jed recap the Fling, the NHRA national event in St. Louis and breakdown their NHRA draft picks at the points battles wind to a close.
