This show made me a NASCAR fan!

Because of this podcast, I have become a huge NASCAR fan and much bigger appreciator of motorsports overall. This show played a major role in helping me to understand the history, culture, and science behind the sport! Heritage Road crafted a fascinating narrative through interviews, story recreation, and careful sound design! I recommend that everyone give this a listen if you’re a racing fan or not! It’s truly GREAT!! — just wish there could be more episodes!!!!
