Bill Lester: NASCAR Trailblazer 

Bill Lester: NASCAR Trailblazer 

NASCAR driver Bill Lester drops by the show to talk NASCAR and his experiences as an African American driver.


This week we speak to trailblazing African American NASCAR driver Bill Lester. I also have choice words about the retirement of Andrew Luck and the crisis of race and class it poses for the NFL.

We also have some Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down Awards to the Portland Timber fans and rap mogul Jay-Z, as well as a very special Kaepernick watch.
