Pit Pass USA with Larry Henry Wednesday, June 20, 2012
June 20, 2012
Hosted by Larry Henry
The Izod IndyCar Series returned to the historic Milwaukee Mile on Sunday and Ryan Hunter-Reay driving for Andretti Autosport was able to hold off the field to gain the win. Ryan checks in with us before heading to Iowa Speedway this weekend. Busy times for the Starworks Motorsport team. Last weekend, they won the LMP2 class at the 24 Hours of LeMans and this weekend they do battle in GrandAm at Road America in Wisconsin. We catchup with team owner Peter Baron. Nothing like a little good old fashioned dirt track midget racing. The Indiana USCA Midget Week just concluded with Darren Hagen winning the title and two races along the way. We talk to Hagen. And it was almost a photo finish for ARCA at Michigan but Chris Buescher added to his win total by an eyelash. We track down Buescher at Chicagoland Speedway testing.
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.
