In this special episode, we sit down with Buck Reuss (Denny Hamlin Foundation) and Mark Rogers Jr (Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway Media Representative) to discuss and preview the 2018 Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown.
We learn where the idea for the foundation and the charity race came from. Some insight into who will be coming – both pro drivers and amateur drivers. We discuss who to watch out for and who we think will take the checkered flag.
Buck also takes a moment to discuss race procedures, award payouts, and incentives.
The guys get back together for the first time in 2018 to talk about the recent races in the national series, ARCA, as well as the K&N Pro Series East season opener in Florida. We also take a look at six different tracks schedules throughout the Mid-Atlantic region along with the CARS Tour. Jesse announces he will be spotting full-time for #TeamRacingVirginia driver Grayson Cullather in the CARS Tour LMSC program.
With co-host Jessie Vaughn absent for a while, TWR founder and content manager Justin Kern goes through his top moments of 2017. Taking the last number of the year, Justin looks back at the top 7 TWR moments of the year. In addition, he briefly talks about the news of Myrtle Beach, Southern National, and NASCAR putting the new Chevy “Upgrade” (Chevy Spec) into the rule book for 2018
The guys get you caught up with winners from different divisions throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Champions are crowned at the tracks we talk about. We also talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly of the ValleyStar Credit Union 300. The first race run under the new permanent LED light system at Martinsville Speedway. We also take you through the top five Late Model Stock Car drivers in the nation as well as the state champions in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
With Jesse Vaughn tied up with prior work commitments, Mark Rogers Jr. of Langley Speedway, makes his return as guest host. Mark and Justin go over all of the racing news and who won were since the last time the guys got together at the 9th Annual Hampton Heat 200. The guys also spend some time talking about a hot topic floating around the Late Model Stock community – The SPEC Motor. Disclaimer, Mark Rogers & Justin Kern are not engine builders, car owners, or drivers, the opinions discussed in this episode do not reflect those of the engine builders, track officials, NASCAR officials or teams that run or do not run the motor. These are just the rumblings we have heard around the track.
The guys also take some time to look over the NWAAS National and State points as there is less than a month left in the season.

We are joined by Langley Media partner, Mark Rogers, Jr., as well as Late Model drivers Grayson Cullather, Brenden Queen, Mark Wertz, and Sam Hunt.
