Episode Description

It was a blazing hot weekend but that didn’t stop some great racing. At Daytona, Tony Stewart was able to win the Coke Zero 400. We’ll hear from Tony plus also Ryan Hunter-Reay who won his third straight Izod IndyCar race taking the top spot in Toronto. Matt Hagan was the NHRA Funny Car Champion last year but finds himself outside of the top 10 in points with 5 races until the Countdown to One. Pit Pass USA catches up with Hagan on his farm in Virginia. Patrick Dempsey may be Dr. McDreamy on TV but he’s also put together a great racing operation. Joe Foster is his partner and longtime co-driver. A podium finish last weekend in ALMS P2 category has them all smiles. We chat with Foster. And when you say World of Outlaws you automatically say Kinser family. We tracked down Kraig Kinser just before he heads off to Eldora.

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.
