Hosted by Larry Henry
There is a long way to go in the Nascar season..but Roush-Fenway Racing is 1-2 in the Sprint Cup standings and leads the Nationwide points. The Cat in the Hat, Jack Roush joins us to talk to the great run to date. Speaking of great runs, Steve Torrence made one to gain his first NHRA Top Fuel win last weekend in Atlanta. We talk to Torrnece. We slowed down the co-host of Top Gear Tanner Foust just long enough to talk about his racing and the start to Global Rally Cross. And we will catch up with ARCA first-time winner Brandon McReynolds who just took the checkered flag at Talladega.
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.
