    Episode 178: Coleman Pressley

    Episode 178: Coleman Pressley

    Championship winning spotter (and driver, kind of) Coleman Pressley stops by the podcast with Davey Segal (8:10) on the heels of his Alanta Motor Speedway win with Joey Logano. The two get into the wild finish at AMS, racing against his former driver Brad Keselowski, his relationship with Logano on and off-track and why it's so important to ensure that driver-spotter relationship is in tip-top shape.

    He also gets into his spotting history, how it came about, learning the craft and whether or not he feels content in year No. 8 atop the roof. Pressley also had a successful driving career, setting records a Hickory Motor Speedway and making it to the Xfinity Series before the economy and other factors prematurely ended his racing efforts. He gets into how and why things didn't work out, how instrumental his father, Robert Pressley, was in his career and what it was like to strap back behind the wheel for the first time in eight years and win the Fall Brawl with Logano as HIS spotter late last year.

    Plus, his broadcasting work with FOX Sports, how Logano is as a babysitter, why the best hot dog in NASCAR isn't in Martinsville and more.

    Davey recaps Atlanta, Logano's first win of the season, previews COTA, the interlopers participating in this weekend's race and Papa Segal pays homage to the No. 78 and a memorable moment for Davey on Twitter.
