This week we welcome former NASCAR Cup and 3-time Daytona 500 champion Dale Jarrett to the podcast. Dale serves as ESPN's lead NASCAR analyst and has followed his father Ned's footsteps in having both a successful racing and broadcasting career. Interest in NASCAR is certainly at a high this season with the controversy at Phoenix preceding the championship deciding season ending race at Homestead. In this week's podcast, Dale chats with AA about...
-Whether he ever envisioned an announcing career after his driving days.
-The different perspective gained in the booth and why every active driver should experience it.
-How each NASCAR race is like a weekly Super Bowl for the television crews.
-The Clint Bowyer-Jeff Gordon feud and where the wild scene Sunday ranks in the sport's annals.
-His surprise over Brad Keselowski's post-race rant.
-The delicate balance between "boys have at it" and drivers crossing a line. And, does NASCAR need driver feuds to sell the sport?
-What Brad Keselowski's rise has meant to the sport.
-Whether or not NASCAR has finally settled on the right formula for the Chase.
-Does Keselowski do enough to win the championship Sunday?
