Guide Review - SIRIUS NASCAR Radio

Lets run through a typical weekday on SIRIUS NASCAR Radio.

The Morning Drive

The 7-11am "The Morning Drive" features MRN's Marty Snider and the Charlotte Observer's David Poole hosting four hours of excellent NASCAR radio. David Poole does not give NASCAR any slack. When he thinks that they made a mistake or something needs to be changed he will let them know.

This is probably my favorite show on SIRIUS as they bring in big name NASCAR guests and ask them hard questions. Marty Snider and David Poole do a great job of getting to the bottom of the issues in a very entertaining format.

The Driver's Seat

From 11am to 3pm John Kernan hosts "The Driver's Seat." This show features guests that know NASCAR from the inside out as NASCAR drivers from the past and present dig into the issues from the drivers' perspective and take fan calls.

Buddy Baker, Johnny Benson, John Andretti, Ricky Craven and many more drivers take their turns behind the microphone. These drivers really give fans an inside look at NASCAR.

SIRIUS Speedway

Dave Moody takes over from 3-7pm with "SIRIUS Speedway." This show features a more casual feel. They are on top of any breaking NASCAR news as they broadcast live from Daytona International Speedway.

This show has a fast pace but this is the point in the day when my NASCAR overload starts to kick in. Taken by itself this is an information-packed broadcast. But after the previous eight hours of coverage these guys don't have much left to talk about that hasn't already been explored by the previous shows.
