Randell Reid, the winner of last weekend’s Spring Fling Million joined Luke & Jed on this episode to recap and relive his huge victory over J.R. Lobner in Friday’s main event.  While Randell and J.R. were obviously the big story, their success was at least somewhat overshadowed by a staging controversy earlier in the day involving Johnny Ezell.  The guys put Johnny Bracket Racer on trial so to speak, and weigh in on the intentions and ramifications of his actions.  In addition, they broke down the Bigfoot $40k’s from Darlington, the first IHRA Sportsman Spectacular from Baton Rouge, and the NHRA national event from Houston.

In this episode, Luke & Jed are joined by last weekend’s $175,000 Powerball of Drag Racing winner, Brandon Taylor.  Brandon gives us a bit of a round-by-round of how the biggest windfall of his drag racing career to date happened, and what was going through his head in that crazy final round sequence.  In addition, the boys recapped the weekend action from not only the Powerball event, but also NHRA Lucas Oil Series action from Texas, Las Vegas and North Carolina.  They previewed what may well be the biggest weekend of the sportsman drag racing season coming up: Spring Fling Million, Bigfoot $40k’s, and more.  And they closed the show with the popular #RacingAnswers segment.

In this episode, the guys got the opportunity to sit down for a great conversation with the minds behind the Spring Fling Million and the Spring Fling brand: Kyle Seipel & Peter Biondo.  They previewed the upcoming event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway that does offer the largest guaranteed purse in all of drag racing for 2018.  They also provided a behind the scenes glimpse at the ups and downs of race promotion.  In addition, Luke & Jed recapped the Southern Big Buck Nationals in Belle Rose, LA and look ahead to a busy month of April on the sportsman scene.  Of course this podcast wouldn’t be complete without a final look back at the NCAA tournament and the podcast bad beat bracket.  It’s our version of “One Shining Moment”
