Luke and Jed discuss SFG’s stance on Excessive Braking, along with a seemingly bizarre ruling from NHRA. Plus, Million Dollar Race Promoter Randy Folk joined the show to clarify some of the details of this year’s Million and to provide his unique perspective on the decisions he was faced with at the event; both this season and in years past. Plus: BTE Who’s Hot, event results from across the country, nerdy NHRA championship breakdowns, and of course, shoutouts for days!
Kenny Underwood became just the second two-time Million Dollar Race Winner. Randell Reid nearly went Verdi on ‘em. Scotty Richardson came close to getting the one win that has eluded him. And none of that was the biggest story of the Million. You know what was. Luke & Jed talked about all that and more. Guests for this show include BOTH the Million Dollar Race winner Kenny Underwood, and runner-up: 17-year-old Cory Gulitti. One long episode to recap one crazy weekend in Montgomery. You gotta hear this.
On the eve of the 23rd annual Mickey Thompson Million, the guys welcome the only 2-time winner of the Million, Gary Williams to the show. GW rehashes his glorious triumphs from 2004 and 2007, how they changed his life, and some thoughts on the Million in general. Gary, Luke, and Jed all weigh in on predictions for the winner and the car count at this year’s Million. In addition, the guys break down the NHRA title chase following an exciting weekend in Charlotte, and recap a handful of big buck bracket events leading into the Million Dollar Race.
In this week’s show, the guys break down coast to coast action from a busy weekend. Highlights include David Rampy’s quest to reach 100 national event wins, a slew of young guns with huge performances, breakdown and insight on a few unsubstantiated rumors, and of course the monthly edition of JJ’s Top Ten!
In this episode, Luke & Jed discuss Jake Howard’s incredible run: all he does is win E.T. Finals (that’s 5 in 3 years, and 3 in 3 weeks for those keeping score at home). Luke took a deeper dive into the NHRA national points chase in Super Stock, Super Comp, and Top Sportsman to break down the championship contenders and their odds. The guys closed the show with a couple of listener e-mails that depict some unique and thought provoking situations (re-runs, points implications, gifted rounds, etc.). Plus the usual nonsense: BTE Who’s Hot, What’s On Tap, Shoutouts and more.
