In the last three years of racing I’ve met as many women fans as men fans, and in NASCAR it’s the same thing. My wife loves cars, but the difference is she doesn’t have 20 years of understanding the background of them. She basically drives them and uses her gut feelings as to which is best.
Prior to ‘The Shield,’ basic cable was just a wasteland of reruns and NASCAR. When we came along, I think there was a collective, ‘Hey, if they can do that, why can’t we?’ from the basic-cable networks of the world. We ended up being the cornerstone for a network, and a great one.

I think NASCAR and racing have been around for a long time. I certainly enjoy it, and there’s a lot of connects to people. People drive to work every day, and there’s a lot of genuine connection there. If people are interested in seeing that, building into that, I’m proud of what I’m a part of.

There’s been bumps in the road and serious challenges along the way, but my love for NASCAR and my zest for life is what’s most important to me.
Horseracing already has the highest mortality rate of any sport in the world per capita to the people who do it. If you crash in Nascar you still have a roll bar, and a cage, and a lot of protection.
