Live from the Empire Dragway Banquet in Mount Morris, NY
We welcome Dan Delaney into the studio!
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.
We recap the Wreckless Warrior’s year-end banquet, touch on the 2016 Northeast Banquet plans, talk about how someone will win a car at the 2016 New Years Party in Waterloo. We will finish with a chat with the incomparable Chris Firster, who has something to get off his chest.
This week, we catch up with Tyler Siri and recap the Gobbler, then we recap the Turkey Bowl and dive into the start of the 2015-16 silly season.
Travis Charleson, winner of the Smashed Empire Films Hit of the Year award, and Mad Russian Jesse Kunkle joins us as we recap the 2014 NE Derby Banquet.
