Auto Channel Gathers Motorsports Gurus for Discussion from Daytona

10 February 1998

The Auto Channel has put together an unrivaled panel of motorsports experts from the print media to discuss NASCAR racing, the growth of it's popularity, and the upcoming Daytona 500.

Auto Channel anchor Walt Glatthaar is joined by Mike Harris, motor sports editor for the Associated press; Lewis Franck, columnist for Inside Sport; and Al Pearce, columnist for Auto Week and author of the comprehensive new book "Inside Sports NASCAR Racing: The Ultimate Fan Guide." The panelists--all of whom have arrived at Daytona International Speedway to cover 1998 Speedweeks activities for their respective publications--take a long look back at NASCAR's 50 year history, and discuss in depth the explosive growth in populrity that the sport has enjoyed over the last 10-12 years.

The informal panel is joined by Winston Cup Racer Kenny Wallace, who followed his brother Rusty across the finish line at last Sunday's Bud Shootout. Kenny talks about the Shootout race, his hopes for coming races, and he breaks the big news that a deal to make teammates of himself, Bill Elliott, and Jerry Nadeau is currently being negotiated.

Join the fun and listen to these insiders as they tell stories that you are unlikely to hear anywhere else and as they analyze the "world's fastest growing sport."
