Our great sport can often be one of great divide between new racers and seasoned racers, young racers and old. We seem to be inept at accepting change, and egos and elitist attitudes prevail, cutting a chasm between those entering the sport and those that have been around the block.
In an era where participation and spectator interest are at perhaps their lowest at any time in history, and a sour public opinion and negative press are around every corner, we find ourselves at a point where solidarity rather than division is the only way to continue to drive drag racing into the future with new racers and new fans. And there are perhaps no greater illustrative examples of this very divide than in the growing sport compact scene and in a once-popular, drag racing-centered television show.
On Thursday, May 2nd the first episode of "The Racing Insiders" airs on MAVTV @ 2 and 5 PM EST. and again on Sat, @ noon. So get ready to pull up a chair or set your DVR to record.
