The Pit Crew's trip to Indianapolis Motor Speedway netted us a ton of interview material and photos. The problem with that, and I'm not complaining, is prioritizing the use of the stuff.
ON PIT ROW is only a two hour show. We usually have about 20 minutes of show allocated to NASCAR related interviews. Trying to fill all of that live on a Tuesday can be tough. These people are swamped with obligations, from testing and sponsor commitments to, oh yeah, that family thing.
With significant talk time from ten different drivers, we have to pick what to use this week - and shift other content to later shows.
Tonight we have Kasey Kahne, Clint Boyer and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Not bad, huh?
The driving forces behind Race Talk Radio, Dennis Michelson, Lori Munroe and Mike Harper particularly have been great to us. Several past ON PIT ROW shows are archived here. Thanks to 4ever3 for the suggestion of putting this link up. I'll make it more prominent in the next few days.
Remember you can call the show and participate live by calling 1-877-502-8255 during show hours. You never know who you might get a chance to talk to.
The questions for our weekly Fast Lap segment are up every Monday here at the Bench Racing blog and over at the Fast Lap blog at the Thunder Lounge. Jump in. Argue with me. Tell Steve he's an idiot. I do. We have some good commentary this week from Bob and Robert so far. I'm pretty sure they made tonight's show.
Anyway, thanks for listening, reading, posting and inviting Steve and I to be part of your NASCAR thing. We're having a blast.
Update: Well the live radio gods frowned on us - sort of - last night. The Dale Jr. audio that was fine Monday night, now needs to be cleaned up in editing so we substituted some nice Aric Almirola stuff. Then my trusty sidekick Steve forgot to adjust the volume on the Clint Boyer sound bite and you'll get to hear LOUD DISTORTED SCREECHING, instead of Clint, blowing me off. Hopefully, the screeching from the recording covered up the cursing from the co-hosts.
