Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 18, 2009
Antron Brown, driver of the Don Schumacher-owned Matco Tools dragster, will co-host Race Central Radio with Kurt Hansen on Saturday, Dec. 19, 2009. The popular Denver-area motor sports talk show can be heard on KCKK AM 1510, the Rocky Mountain's Sporting News Radio affiliate. Brown will be on the show from 1:00-1:30 p.m. (MT) on Saturday. Fans can listen on the web at http://www.racecentralmedia.com.
"Kurt (Hansen) is one cool cat," Brown said. "In fact, I think he may be the only guy I know who talks faster than me. I've done Kurt's show a lot this year and over the years he's been on the air with Race Central and he knows a lot about NHRA drag racing. We won at Denver this year and the fan support for the Mile-High Nationals is great, so we're looking forward to taking some calls and talking some NHRA drag racing this weekend."
Brown, a 24-time NHRA winner, is the only racer in NHRA history to win races and top the standings in both Top Fuel and Pro Stock Motorcycle. The Matco Tools flagship driver raced his Brian Corradi/Mark Oswald-tuned dragster to a category-best six wins en route to a third-place finish in the Countdown to 1 in 2009. He also earned seven No. 1 qualifying awards and has 21 career poles. Brown won the Mile-High Nationals near Denver in July. It was the first of three consecutive wins as Brown became just the seventh professional racer to sweep the Western Swing.
