Episode 43 ..::.. Two Minute Warning

This week, we chat with first-time guest Frank ‘Bubba’ Burnell. We’ll also check in with Jeff Hachmann of DIRTcar.

We dive into a diverse mailbag, talk about Rich’s upcoming Sportsman endeavors and the wonders of Steak-flavored Great Value brand Potato Chips.

The mailbag prompts a spirited discussion between Rich and John on safety, and then age of kids allowed in the pit area.
