Guests Tony Pedregon and Wes Buck join Brian Lohnes on this final episode of the NHRA Insider podcast for 2021. The conversations range from a look back over the NHRA's insanely successful PRI Show to the season that was, what to look for in 2022, the changing landscape of professional drag racing, and the plethora of breaking news that has swarmed over drag racing in the last few weeks and promises to be unrelenting after the new year.
Pedregon talks about the effects of independent team ownership will have on the professional ranks, who is he looking for to succeed in 2022, and who are the stars on the rise coming off a hot and heavy 2021 season.
Buck talks about youth in drag racing and looks back over not only the 2021 season but the state of drag racing as a whole. This is a neat conversation that recognizes the opportunities that are available to drag racers these days, how people are taking advantage of them, and why the future of the sport appears to be so bright.
A fun walk back over 2021 and a fun leap forward looking at a 2022 that holds more promise than any season we have looked ahead to in years!
