What Wednesday #36: Daytona 500
Today I hang out with Redneck Jesus himself, Dale Jr.
What Wednesday is where I talk about what I’m watching, reading, playing, etc, because for some reason I think you’ll find that interesting. If you have recommendations, I’d love to hear them :)
What I’m Working On: The Daytona 500
I worked on the Super Bowl a few weeks ago. Now I’m working on the redneck Super Bowl, the Daytona 500! It’s definitely not my first 500, but it’s one of my biggest because Redneck Jesus, Dale Jr., is back after missing the 2nd half of last year with a concussion. Exciting times! To commemorate, we had a sit-down with him, his wife and Jeff Gordon. That’s a lot of racing star power in one room. Instead of telling you about the shoot, I figured I’d show you. You can look for the finished product this Sunday on Fox. The pre-race show airs at 1pm and it will air near the end of it. Check it out. NASCAR can use the help in the ratings…
Bonus: I also got to hang out with Danica Patrick and Tony Stewart in Detroit at Ford HQ, where I got to see where they designed the $500,000 Ford GT. Which is also kinda cool, I guess.
