Lyle Barnett joins Brian Lohnes to talk about his path through the world of small-tire drag racing and into the ranks of the E3 Spark Plugs NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series.
On the day they spoke, Barnett had completed his licensing, making runs of more than 250 mph in the quarter-mile. He talks about the experience, his recovery from a horrendous fire in 2015, and how he has made his way to the highest rank of doorslammer racing in the world. An intense and fascinating man, this is one you'll want to hear.
There's also a fun musical look back at the Funny Car category set to an iconic tune.
