This week, open with memories of Jesse Howe, a storied southern tier driver who was beloved by many. Then, we look back on the busy week between NAPA WinterSLAM and the Northeast Derby Banquet in Owego, and discuss with Jake Sherman his experience in the compact division at WinterSLAM. At the end, we catch up with an elated Ed Brewster, who with JMW and Cow RC Demo Derby joined Tyler Spittle in hosting the first-ever rc derby at the Motorama Event in Harrisburg, PA. HT RC also hosted a $1,000 to win rc derby over the weekend in Ohio, drawning more than 50 cars.
