F-R Racing's Garage Talk

Release Date: 11-24-2023 20:00

D.J. is back from his illness last week (mostly).  We kick off the show talking about D.J. taking on the flu and food poisoning at the same time and how at one point his wife had to call 911 and have paramedics come to the house because things got really bad.

After a brief discussion about safety, SAFER barriers, and deaths during the 24 hours of Le Mans in the 50s and 60s we go on and talk about an event we've heavily criticized over the course of this year, the Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix.  We recap the week starting from the damage caused by the drain cover to Carlos Sainz's car and the ridiculous 10-position grid penalty he faced for it, the cold weather causing chaos with grip,  the ridiculous Vegas opening ceremonies, and much more.  That's all before we even get to the start of the race.

We break down the race and how it was actually quite exciting.  We talk about Max's penalty, words for the stewards, his accident with George Russell, and oh he still won.  Also more on Lando Norris' crash, Lewis' puncture,  Haas and Williams' great qualifying runs, but poor races, and so much more!

Finally, we get to what we know you've been waiting for, the unveiling of the Wednesday Night Dash Season 8 schedule (skip to 40:30)! We're back in the Next Gen Cup Car in January and will be visiting some tracks that WND has never visited and also visiting some that we've never been to in the Cup car.  It's going to be an exciting season and you should join us!  


???Wednesday Night Dash???? is off until early January, but hold your spot now! We have room for about 5-6 more drivers. $40 for 10 races broadcasted with the rest of the cash outside of the broadcast fee thrown into the prize pool.

????Behind Closed Doors???? is taking the holiday season off as well. Registration will continue to be free
