Here is what’s on today’s show:
NASCAR Hall of Famer and decorated World War II veteran Bud Moore has passed away at the age of 92. As the NASCAR community pauses to remember him, we’ll look back on his championship legacy in the sport and the heroism he displayed while serving America in its time of need.
We’ll also continue our early look ahead to the 2018 season with driver moves among the sport’s power teams – Hendrick, Penske, Gibbs, Stewart-Haas, and new champs Furniture Row!
Sirius XM NASCAR Radio’s Pete Pistone also joins us with his thoughts on the late Bud Moore and the one driver change for 2018 that intrigues him the most.
