Get Behind The Wheel

Antron BrownThree-time NHRA Top Fuel Champion was just getting his fantastic Top Fuel career underway when The Freaks talked with him in March of 2008. It was hours after his first Top Fuel win in Houston. But in the ten years he’s won three titles and a basket full of Wally trophies, the NHRA iconic trophy awarded to race winners. This interview, however, should be given some kind of award. Only in the Freak Nation can you hear this kind of candor. Listen…

Bryan SellersIMSA GTD Points Leader Bryan Sellers was in The Freak Nation Sunday night between European tests and next weekend’s battle with Katherine Legge for the IMSA GTD championship. Only six points separate the two teams. The crazy thing about this battle is that Sellers and Legge are actually teammates in the Jaguar E Pace racing the they were testing for in Europe last weekend. Now they’ll change hats and go at each other for a 2018 championship. Crazy! Listen…

AJ AllmendingerThe Freaks dip into 18 years of interviews to come up with a five year old conversation with A.J. Allmendinger.  This was before Allmendinger signed with JTG Daughtery to run in the NASCAR Cup series.  It was announced this week that Allmendinger would be losing the JTG ride next year.  We thought it was a great time to hear from A.J. and where he was before he took the full-time assignment in the Cup series.  Listen…

Tony Stewart2002, 2005 & 2011 NASCAR Cup Champion Tony Stewart returned to The Freak Nation from our Freak Archives. It was back in April, 2013 at Texas Motor Speedway that The Freaks visited Tony in his motorcoach only to find him pretty casual in his underwear. Tony talked about a number of issues from driving across country from Virginia to Texas to how he talked with Danica Patrick when Danica raced for Stewart Haas Racing. Listen…

Stephen SimpsonIMSA VIR Winner Stephen Simpson and teammate Misha Goikhberg came into The Freak Nation Sunday. They finished sixth in the Prototype category after winning overall at Virginia International Raceway three weeks ago. The two have a great relationship that allows some kidding and that’s perfect for the Freaks Pits. Listen…

Clint BowyerYou never know what to expect from Clint Bowyer when he visits the Freak Nation. And this visit in Phoenix in 2012 was right before the NASCAR Cup appearance at what’s now ISM Raceway. Bowyer, in fact, threw down some shade on Teh Freaks when the conversation slipped to hunting and wrenching ducks.  Bowyer is a good ol’ boy and he’s proud of it.  Listen…

Mario AndrettiMotorsports Hall of Fame Legend Mario Andretti has made himself comfortable in The Freak Nation.  He’s been here regularly but this visit is from The Freaks’ 12th Anniversary.  We bring it back because Mario is Mario and he’s worth hearing whenever.  It’s just good to create a relationship with a legend, especially when the legend is A DUDE!  Listen…

Katherine LeggeIMSA VIR GTD Podium Finisher Katherine Legge is always candid when she comes into The Freak Nation and Sunday night was no different. Legge was in a tight race at Virginia International Raceway. But she also talked about the IndyCar accident at Pocono. Is oval racing a concern to drivers in her homeland? Is it a concern to her? Would she run in the Indy 500 if she got the chance or is her career strictly sports cars now? Listen…

Alexander RossiIndyCar Second in Points Alexander Rossi returned to The Freak Nation Sunday night. Rossi is second in points with a 2016 Indy 500 win on his resume. In 2015 Rossi raced in Formula One with Marussia before coming to IndyCar. So he knows considerable background on the European racing community and the differences with the racing fans and community here in the U.S. Listen…

Tony Stewart2002, 2005 & 2011 NASCAR Champion Tony Stewart came out of the bulging Freak Archives. The interview was from 2005 right before Stewart began his rise to his second championship.  Stewart has been a regular in The Freak Nation and his shows in this conversation when he stopped by before taking part in a charity race in Sedalia, Missouri.  Listen…
