On this post-Gerber Collision & Glass Route 66 NHRA Nationals presented by Peak Performance episode of the NHRA Insider podcast, NHRA's Joe Castello joins Brian Lohnes along with Vance & Hines chief tuner Andrew Hines. The talk is centered on an incredible race weekend at Route 66 Raceway. The fans came out by the tens of thousands, the car counts were fantastic, and the competition through the event was off the charts. Sunday was one of the most incredible race days that anyone has ever seen, and you'll get it from the perspective of a television reporter and of a racer in Andrew Hines.
The conversation eventually turns to the unstoppable nature of Gaige Herrera, how Hines continues to work with him, how his multi-faceted presence is aiding the team, and some surprising facts about this racer who may be most well-known on a motorcycle but can do damage in cars as well.
The stories from inside the race, on the starting line, and in the pits, all right here!
