We've moved the home of Bench Racing with Steve and Charlie to the new OnPitRow.com site. We'll continue to post over here for awhile, but please check out the new site and change your bookmarks. Thanks.
Racing season is heating up--behind the mike.
Former ESPN RPM 2Night host John Kernan and Charlotte Observer, Sirius Radio and ON PIT ROW raconteur, David Poole, have been sniping at one another for a couple of weeks as was chronicled on The Daly Planet blog. Kernan's gig for Sirius Radio has gone up in smoke. And he seems to think it has to do with the current crop of radio personalities who do nothing but "tow the NASCAR line" He was/is unwilling to be a "shill" for NASCAR and intimates that others, including Poole, have lost their journalistic edge.
This week the Fast Lap asks:
1) Should NASCAR raise the minimum age for drivers in any of their top three series to 21 years of age?
2) Is NASCAR relying on Dale Jr. to single handedly rejuvenate the sport?
3) Was all the 2007 worry about Toyota taking over the sport; just one year too early?
4) Kenny Wallace or Jimmy Spencer?
Let us know how you feel about these questions, or anything else that happened since last February in Daytona. If we like your comments, whether we agree or not, we may use them on the air during Tuesday's ON PIT ROW.
