Pit Pass USA with Larry Henry gets a chance to talk with a rising star in the Nascar Sprint Cup Series, “The Franchise,” David Reutimann, the driver of the #99 Aaron’s Dream Machine Toyota. It was a two year winless drought, but NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series Pro Stock driver Allen Johnson ended that streak a few days ago in Topeka onboard his Mopar Dodge Stratus. He’ll talk about that win and the season. No one has ever said that Robin Miller doesn’t share his opinions, especially on IndyCar racing. Miller, who you see on Wind Tunnel and read on SpeedTV.com will stop by to give us the 411. And, our good story of the week is with 60 year old ARCA Re/Max Series regular Darrell Basham.
Pit Pass USA with Larry Henry
Wednesday at 4 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Sports Channel
Pit Pass USA is about all forms of racing. Pit Pass USA prides itself on not just being about Nascar or IndyCar or NHRA, or any one particular series.
Pit Pass USA has conversations, not interviews with drivers, owners, crew chiefs, series officials, crew members and even the media. We want to hear their story, find out what makes them tick, and get their viewpoint on the sport.
One thing that we strive for on Pit Pass USA is bringing the untold story to race fans. That’s why one of our key goals is to talk to those that may not get much media attention but are working just as hard as the stars of the sport to make their dreams come true.
Pit Pass USA is broadcast live every Wednesday at 4 PM Pacific Time on the Power Up Motorsports Series on the VoiceAmerica Sports Channel.
