We’re back with a second episode of the NHRA’s new internet chat show, “Deep Stage” this is an honest and unflinching look at the world of drag racing from the inside out. Lewis Bloom, Whit Bazemore, and I all talk about what’s on our mind, who’s up and who’s down, along with the important topics of the day in the sport. Whit and I get tangled up in a debate over the need for personality in drag racing versus driver skill. We both have our own ideas about what’s more important at the end of day for the sport to succeed.
We talk about who had the worst starts of the season in Pomona, who impressed us the most, and perhaps most importantly whether or not the NHRA is actually going to let us speak our minds and drop truth bombs that they may not agree with. (Spoiler alert: Yes and we prove it).
There’s some stuff in this show that may make your jaw hit the floor, may make you shake your fist, or may make you want to take an angry jab at one (or all three) of us. We’re game because if there is one thing that we need more of in NHRA drag racing it’s wide open conversation with a topic and an opinion…whether you agree with it or not.
