On this week’s show, the guys catch up with recently crowned NHRA S/C world champ Austin Williams. In addition, they recap the holiday weekend action, which unfortunately included a disproportionate number of on track incidents. They also roll out a new “What’s On Tap” feature in which they preview upcoming events and talk about a 2018 schedule that is quickly becoming the richest and most exciting season in big buck bracket racing history. Plus they close the show with a long overdue #RacingAnswers segment.
A couple months ago, Jason Patterson was a Footbrake racer from south Texas. Now he’s an NHRA World Champion. Luke & Jed catch up with him to talk about the experience. In addition, they salute this year’s class of NHRA world champions, discuss the latest IHRA news, and preview the upcoming Sportsman Drag Racing Podcast anniversary episode.
Justin Lamb just became the third driver in NHRA history to win two national championships in one season. Those titles marked the third and fourth of his illustrious career (he’s 30 years old). On this week’s show, Jed and Luke got to catch up with Justin en route to Pomona for the World Finals. In addition, they do their best to bring everyone up to speed on the remaining sportsman championship pictures, recap the World Series of Bracket Racing, and share some thoughts on integrity within championship points battles.
It’s our anniversary! Join Luke & Jed as they take a look back at the first 52 episodes of the podcast and review the listener poll about the best, funniest, and most awkward moments of year one!
In today’s episode, Luke & Jed revisit last week’s discussion on safety and break down the past week’s major events: big dollar Footbrake action at the SFC, NHRA national event competition from Las Vegas, and the final Division 2 event from Rockingham. They’re joined by recent Las Vegas winner Marko Perivolaris and Luke brings everyone up to speed on NHRA championship possibilities with just 2 weeks remaining in the 2017 season. And of course, the duo discusses their NHRA pick ‘em contest with an emphasis on the recourse for the loser.
