Welcome to What’s Happening Wednesday on Chief 187™Chatter.
This week’s Drafting the Circuits has a decidedly IndyCar theme. The Indianapolis 500 – The Greatest Spectacle in Racing – takes place this Memorial Day Weekend and we are dedicating a good portion of the show to that.
Our guest is “Speedy” Dan Clarke, a British driver who now calls Indianapolis home. Clarke has run everything from UK Formula Ford to the Champ Car World Series, the Firestone Indy Lights Series to driving road courses in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. Most recently Clarke has earned the 2012 Intercontinental Trophy Cup Porsche Cayman Championship. In addition to IndyCar we’ll talk about Formula 1 in Monaco with the masterful Michele Rahal. And Ronnie Crate Payne, Gray Warren, Sinista 1 Keith Hayes, and I, Chief 187™Candice Smith, will get to talk about the NASCAR Sprint Cup Coca~Cola (World) 600. It is the preview of 1261.8 miles of racing this Memorial Day Weekend!
Burning Rubber Radio kicks off this weekend with runner up at the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 in Charlotte, Brendan Gaughan. I asked host Andy Delay to secure this guest that very night and, like he always does, Delay came through! Gaughan gives a candid interview leaving me – and our listeners – totally endeared to him. Buzzie Reutimann, NASCAR Sprint Cup driver David’s father, swings by to talk about his most recent race and a career that has stretched the decades, includes his son as team owner, and keeps him in the cockpit of his racecar in his seventies. A post-All-Star race roundtable between Delay, Bob Steele, Ronnie Crate Payne, Corrie Stott, and me, Candice Smith, is spirited. And stay tuned for Chef John Dicks' famous ribs recipe, the one that Tony “Smoke” Stewart always indulges in when Dicks cooks for him at the races.
Heels on Wheels this week finds me talking to one of my favorite ladies, Shawna Robinson. She is as charming, forth-coming, and interesting as ever and tells us about her storied career, personal choices, and re-invention post-racing. I also have Kelley Picasso, co-founder of Autosport Labs who introduces our audience to Race Capture Pro, an open source racecar data and telemetry system that is being sold at a very accessible price point. Producer and race enthusiast/racecar driver Bob Steele joins me to talk NASCAR as well. The other ladies interview Motocross Racer Sue Fish and Casey Roderick PR Person Renee Jones. And always stick around for Sizzlin’ Scotty’s recipe!
