As a preview to the 24th annual O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Spring Nationals presented by Pennzoil, John Force Entertainment has posted the first installment of Nitro Rewind on the NHRA YouTube channel. The show, an Internet-based broadcast, is hosted by Bill Stephens and will feature interviews from Top Fuel and Funny Car NHRA competitors throughout the season.
“We wanted to create a show that would set the table for the upcoming NHRA national event,” said Ashley Force Hood, president of John Force Entertainment. “Our goal is to get people excited about our races and hopefully tune in to the great ESPN2 broadcasts. We are going to have a little bit of a recap of the previous race, but most of the focus of each show will be on the next race coming up and what fans should be on the lookout for.”
In the first episode, Top Fuel drivers Terry McMillen and Morgan Lucas talk about the challenges and excitement of racing in Houston as well as what the Top Fuel experience is like. John Force Racing track specialist Lanny Miglizzi talks about getting race cars down a tricky racetrack, and fans can see footage of JFR future Funny Car driver Courtney Force testing after the VisitMyrtleBeach.com NHRA Four-Wide Nationals. Future episodes will be posted on the NHRA YouTube channel the Thursday after each national event.
“I am excited about this project,” added Force Hood. “I can promise NHRA fans one thing: The shows will all be positive, and they’ll highlight the great nitro personalities and storylines the NHRA offers every event. This show will evolve, and our goal is to interview and promote as many Top Fuel and Funny Car personalities as we can.”
