Welcome to the Racing Insider’s Podcast!

Each week, Kate Dillon from Crate Insider and Steve Hendren from Hendren Racing Engines go live on the Crate Insider Facebook page to chat about world events, random things, and to answer tech questions.

This week Kate and Steve started the show out with the cutest guest, mini assistant Addison. This cute 1st grader made us smile when she told us what she was going to be when she grew up. Kate received an outpour of great reviews of her new product, the Track N' Recover. With so many trailers getting stolen, the Track N' Recover has gave so many peace of mind. Steve had another busy week building engines, and told us how he really feels about 1-Ply toilet paper. Join us Monday at 7pm, and drop in your tech questions!
