Episode 200 – OpenPaddock.net Podcast

New OP

New OPIt’s our 200th episode!!! …and in true OpenPaddock style, I’m late getting the show posted. Big thanks to Kevin for taking care of the editing process for me this week. Classes start on Monday, so this week has been chaotic to say the least. Sadly, Pechin was absent from this week’s show. He was off being a responsible dad or something.

One comment

  • My wife and I went to the Atlanta GRC round and it was pretty good. There were considerably more people there than I expected! I think IndyCar would have been satisfied with the crowd they had. On a show note, pleeeeeeeeease mute your mic while typing on your keyboard (or don’t type).
