Pro Stock Motorcycle champ Andrew Hines and public-relations specialist Elon Werner joined host Brian Lohnes on this episode of the NHRA Insider podcast.
Werner, the vice president of Sports Publicity for the Tony Fay Agency of Texas, has long been a presence inside NHRA Drag Racing, garnering teams like John Force Racing headlines over the years. He talks about the modern world of PR, how things have changed over his 30 years in the sport, and what he is doing to work with people like Kalitta Racing, Justin Ashley, and more each week.
Hines tells the amazing tale of the new Vance and Hines four-valve cylinder head, developing new motorcycles for Cory Reed and Joey Gladstone, testing before Gainesville, and breaking the 200-mph barrier with Angelle during the race. Truly an awesome story of applied technology in the sport of NHRA Camping World Drag Racing.
