This week’s episode kicks off with hosts Rick Houston and Steve Waid sitting down with Las Vegas Motor Speedway President and General Manager Chris Powell and NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace for a very special announcement.

Then, in the third and final installment of our conversation, Archie Kennedy talks about his disappointment at being cut from the Petty Enterprises over-the-wall pit crew and how that might or might not have played into the difficult decision to tell Richard and Lynda Petty that he would no longer be driving their motorhome.

After leaving Petty Enterprises, Archie went to work for another ultra-significant figure in NASCAR history … Jeff Gordon.

We then take a deep dive into the October 5, 1995 issue of Winston Cup Scene.

Mark Martin wins at North Wilkesboro, but it’s Ernie Irvan in the spotlight as he makes his return to competition. Ricky Rudd gets all bitc … sorry … Ricky Rudd is not pleased with NASCAR when he’s forced to return to the pits late in the race to tighten loose lug nuts.

It’s revealed that Ted Musgrave got REALLY close to Bobby Hamilton in their battle for the 1991 rookie-of-the-year title. Curtis Markham doesn’t let a little thing like blindness hinder HIS attempts to win the 1995 Busch Series freshman title. Archie Kennedy finds himself in Scene’s Photo Bio section. Rusty Wallace talks about his dream vehicle … and it AIN’T on four wheels.

Slim Jim moves its sponsorship to Jason Keller’s team … and gives away A LOT of product. Finally, the legendary PR rep Tom Roberts extends an incredible streak of being at the track.
