Valvoline Racing Radio features Executive Producer and Host Shawn Whitfield, Host Casey Orr and Producer “Big Daddy” Kyle giving all of the updates and stories pertinent to NASCAR fans. Wednesday’s episodes feature a recap of the racing action and points standings from the previous weekend while Saturday’s episodes look ahead to that weekend’s race.
Whitfield says, “We are more geared towards the casual NASCAR enthusiast. We give them the updates and details that bring them up to speed on any of the action or news they may have missed.” Orr added, “We’re like the NASCAR multi-vitamin. We fill in all of the gaps for fans who aren’t able to sit and watch every race in its entirety.”
