When it comes to personalities that people recognize immediately in the world of NHRA drag racing, Amanda Busick is one of them. A top end and pit reporter for NHRAonFOX broadcasts, Amanda has been a big part of the NHRA television team since the move to FOX was made and since the company brought production in-house. She’s not afraid to ask the tough questions at the top end, ruffle a feather or two, and chase a story that the audience needs to hear.
The top end of the drag strip is one of the most interesting and intense places during any event. You have the constant flow of traffic coming off the racing surface, a decent number of people milling about, and then you have the adrenaline filled drivers coming out of their car after experiencing victory or defeat. As you will see in these recap videos that we get the inside scoop on, things do not always go according to plan and there is NO script.
Enjoy this look back at moments from the pits the will make you laugh, that will make you cry, and will make you understand Amanda, her approach and her career a little better. She, like me, cannot wait to get back to the drag strip again and get back to work!
