One of the things we have done a couple of times during this break from NHRA drag racing action is to make these NHRA Rewind LIVE shows. The first time it was members of the FOX Sports broadcast team and this time it was me and three awesome racers. Clay Millican, Stevie Fast Jackson, and Andrew Hines basically call the race from the inside out as we re-watch the race broadcast. These guys tell stories that you’d never hear, give information about how their events went and basically take us inside this historic drag race that happened last season.
The interesting thing about this threesome is the fact that both Millican and Jackson lost in the final rounds of their respective classes. Hines not only won the race but set a new national elapsed time record as well. He talks about the chase for 200 and the other guys do an awesome job telling us what it was like to come so close and to work so hard only to fall a tad short at one of the world’s largest drag races.
Taking these opportunities to interact with drivers and teams during downtime has been cool and no one wants to be back at the drags more than I do but I can tell you that getting to know these guys even better than I did before and making shows like this has been pretty fun.
