Episode 51 ..::.. Back to the Future

In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, racing was rained out at Hagerstown, the drivers were already en route and racing in Charlotte and Black Rock postponed their event. So, with no interviews, we turn the reigns over to the fans. Through Livestream chat, the fans gave us topics and we did a lot of talking about our past experiences in the racing world. It was just like our first episode from way back when!
