The Inside Track Podcast returns this week with co-hosts Jeremiah Davis and Danny Lehmkuhl breaking down all things motorsports in Eastern Iowa — on dirt and asphalt.

Davis and Lehmkuhl also welcome on 14-year-old Big 8 Series Late Model driver Brody Willett to talk about his year in the Late Model, how his confidence has been built after winning at Hawkeye Downs, and what he’s hoping for in his trip to Wisconsin International Raceway this weekend (24:51).
