I worked for the Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce and I was trying to get them involved in racing and one day my secretary said I had a call on line one and when I picked up I heard " John, Alan Bestwick with MRN radio"! He had the same energy on that call like he was in the booth. This was back in the early 90's and we ended up doing some spots on MRN and the Chamber sponsored my driver CP3 in several top Super Late Model races at Martinsville, Nashville and of Course Myrtle beach Speedway. I can still hear his voice saying my name on the phone, its was a thrill I will never forget. It just shows he not only did the race calls but he was out out hawking sponsorship.Is Allen Bestwick just the Epitome of what a racing broadcaster should be??!!..
Probably they weren't into the B.S. drama. See...the gerbils.I didn't get to watch it. But I read the announcers weren't well-versed on dirt racing. No surprise there. Davenport used to drive for Bowyer's dirt late model team. Bowyer fired him and Davenport has gone on to be one of the top 2 or 3 dirt late model drivers in the country. It would have made more sense for the viewers knew that when those two were mixing it up.
Like he said in his interview he knew it wasn't the dirt late model crowd because they were cheering not booingThe governor of MO may have been born and raised in Wheatland, but JD is the mayor of that town. It's like it is his own personal playground for dominating everyone else
