Facebook drama within the big buck bracket community, Jed’s redemption tour at the JEGS Summer Door Car Shootout, and the NHRA sportsman world championship picture (and our podcast pick ‘em contest) is a little bit more in focus. The guys discuss these topics and more in Episode 87!
In this episode, Luke & Jed rehash the action from the SFG Summer Shootout at US 131 as well as NHRA action from Division 3 and 6, and assorted big dollar bracket events across the country. Two former world champions that the guys dropped from their team last week showed out over the weekend and forced them to rethink those decisions… Luke previews the upcoming JEGS Summer Door Car Shootout, and they close the show with a popular #RacingAnswers topic: dealing with the first round (or final round) jitters.
National Dragster Senior Editor Kevin McKenna joined Luke & Jed for this week’s show, as the trio performed their mid-season re-draft of Sportsman champions. That closed an episode that led off with Jed’s World Footbrake Challenge Recap, as well as insights from Luke’s weekend at the Firecracker Bracket Nationals in Byron, IL. In addition, they touched on results from the Tenn-Tuck series, and NHRA national and divisional action. Jed was tired and slurring his words... Luke shouted out half of Minnesota… It was a pretty typical Sportsman Drag Racing Podcast!
This episode features our monthly segment from the best 12-year-old announcer and podcast personality in the land, JJ Pennington: JJ’s Top Ten. In addition, the guys discuss the holiday weekend events, introduce a new Siebert Performance Who’s Hot, and close with some final thoughts on the constantly changing landscape of big dollar bracket racing in 2018.
