I decided to take a turn toward the controversial on this episode of the NHRA Insider podcast. The guests are Jason Line and Andrew Hines. The opening monologue centers around the inside baseball of the TV game, the stuff that we’re trying to do, the things that we’re saying, the approach that we’re taking, and the stuff we’re dealing with because of that. Not to be overly dramatic, but there’s a direction that we’re going in and that’s a direction of honesty, and straightforwardness which has not been around in a while. Whether it is the reporters in the pits and on the top end asking hard questions of the racers or us in the booth being straight ahead and honest in our race calls, it’s pretty cool but but without friction.
Jason Line is the first guest on the show and he is at his most open and honest regarding his thoughts on an 18-race pro stock schedule, the direction of the class, and what he and KB Racing are doing to keep themselves viable and competitive in 2019. The pro stock category will be at every event for the rest of the 2019 season and that’s a good thing.
Finally, Andrew Hines joins the show. He has won five races so far this year and looks to be the odds on favorite for a championship. He talks about the challenges of racing in Denver, the challenges of developing new Harley-Davidson FXDR bodywork, and what it will take the keep himself ahead of the pack for the rest of 2019.
Good stuff, real talk, and honest on this podcast!
