PRN's 'Fast Talk' to Feature Bruton and Marcus Smith on Monday
Doug Rice, president and general manager of Performance Racing Network (PRN), will host a special edition of "Fast Talk" from The Speedway Club at Charlotte Motor Speedway Monday, Nov. 30, featuring Bruton and Marcus Smith. The show gives listeners the opportunity to call or e-mail questions for the celebrity guests.
"The special edition of 'Fast Talk' presents an excellent opportunity for fans to ask questions of two of the most notable men in motorsports," said Rice. "Bruton Smith is a leader in the NASCAR industry and has done a great deal to help further the sport. Marcus has learned a lot from his father and has been a big proponent of putting the fans first since he took over at Charlotte Motor Speedway last year.
"Having them on provides a great open forum for fans to ask about a number of different elements of the sport. I'm sure race fans will have a lot of questions for them both and we'll probably cover a colorful range of topics during the hour-long show."
As founder and CEO of Speedway Motorsports, Inc., Bruton Smith has more than 50 years of experience in motorsports and is regarded as an innovator in the industry. He opened Charlotte Motor Speedway in 1960 with a 600-mile race and made history when Speedway Motorsports became the first publicly traded motorsports company on the New York Stock Exchange in 1995.
Marcus Smith, president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway, joined the company in 1996 as a marketing assistant and quickly ascended the ranks. He took over leadership of the track in May 2008.
Fans can call in to 1-800-771-TALK (8255) between 7 - 8 p.m. ET on Monday, Nov. 30, to ask Bruton or Marcus a question live on air. Questions can also be submitted in advance via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Race fans from around the country are encouraged to participate as "Fast Talk" is broadcast on more than 200 stations across the United States.
