On this race week episode of the NHRA Insider Podcast, National Dragster Sr. Editor Kevin McKenna and NHRAonFOX analyst Tony Pedregon join Brian Lohnes to talk all things Circle K NHRA Charlotte 4-Wide Nationals. The guys talk about the news of Bandimere's impending closure, the Pro Stock Motorcycle downtime and who made the best of it, starting line/staging espionage, and the questionable forecast for this weekend's race to start with.
Leading into the race discussion, the group talks about racers like Antron Brown, the complexity of operating the near double-digit Elite Motorsports Pro Stock team, Matt Hagan's dominating funny car performances thus far, and why the NHRA needs to embrace a power ranking system like other sports have.
This one goes deep into some interesting subjects. There's some laughs, some debates, and some hot fire spit by this panel on all the above topics. In other words, it's another must-listen trip inside the world of NHRA Camping World Drag Racing!
