KC Pesnell broke the internet. So, we had to talk about the 14-year-old who won $50,000! In that discussion, Luke and Jed debated whether KC (or any 14-year-old) should be driving a 140+ mph dragster alongside grown men and women at the highest level of our sport. In addition, Jed put his reporter hat on and broke some news about the situation. It's as much of a "must listen" podcast as we've ever published! Once we wrapped up our thoughts on that situation, we brought on Rex Simmermaker, host of the “Fast Brackets Podcast”on the eve of the first U.S. Nationals featuring the two fastest pure sportsman categories: Top Dragster and Top Sportsman.
Jed sits down with Stephen “Champ” McCrory, they talk about Champs history in the sport, his accomplishments, and how he feels about the direction the sport is going.
Luke and Jed return for an entertaining and slightly “off” regular episode, featuring a discussion about house cars, and their opinions concerning them. JJ’s Top 10 (15) returns with July’s picks, and some light results talk.
On this week’s interview Jed gets to dive into Mia Tedesco’s head and find out about her start into drag racing and what keeps her going week after week. Faith and family are vitally important to Tedesco. She began drag racing when she was 8 at Pittsburgh Raceway Park (renamed Keystone Raceway Park), a track owned by her father Michael Tedesco. It was her Uncle Carmen who convinced his niece to grab a helmet and fire suit and to get behind the wheel of a race car. A lifelong drag racing fanatic, Uncle Carmen was Mia's biggest fan until his passing in 2015.
