  • Why Bristol Motor Speedway is concrete instead of asphalt like most tracks.
  • Jeff built the track himself and told us how that came about and why he wanted to build an asphalt track there.
  • We talked about the types of racing vehicles on short track and how they compare to NASCAR and open-wheeled race cars.
  • We talked about some drivers who have raced on his track and why owners are interested in younger drivers.
  • Jeff explained more about his track including the seating, VIP, corporate events, car shows, and training events.
  • We also got Jeff’s opinion of Danica Patrick going from open wheeled to stock car.
  • We talked about their negotiations with NASCAR to be a sanctioned track or an ASA sanctioned track. Right now they’re running independent.

After the interview Foss and Rees bantered about which sport is more exciting: Open Wheeled racing or Stock car racing. This turned into an argument over which racing movie was best, Days of Thunder, Talladega Nights, or Driven.

We want to thank Short Track owner Jeff Vaughn for coming on the show and we wish his track success in the future! You can check out his track at
