Ride or Die

The joy of having six hosts is that when four of them are busy there can still be a show. Pat and Eric sit up close to their mics to discuss the week's events. You'll probably like it, you know, assuming you like our show. There is Indycar, IMSA, Formula 1, and Blancpain race recaps and plenty of news to discuss. I have it on good authority that this was a fun episode.

This week on the DFL Show, Brad went to Long Beach, Stef drove a Formula E car. Joel has been stupid busy with things, Eric has things to say, and Pat rants at some stuff. This one went a little long, and we lost Joel for the final few minutes during the awards ceremony, but hopefully you can power through it, because we had a lot of fun, and you'll like it. This episode is brought to you by Hunziker Design, for more information visit nicolashunziker.com.

Last Minute Deal

Sorry this episode is late. I (Brad) am on the road in the middle of a very long road trip, and I didn't know my co-hosts had recorded an episode this week, so I didn't edit it together for a few extra days. I don't honestly know what they talked about, but I assume some racing, and other stuff?Hopefully it's good.

Do It Live

We started this week's episode with four hosts, but we're down to just two by the end of it. Joel had to take off a bit early to catch a plane, and Stef's audio dropped out just before we got to the week's awards ceremony. Luckily Brad and Eric are still around to entertain. We talk Formula 1, WEC, TCR (Go Duncan!), ELMS, and the 6-hours production race at Bathurst. We discuss Scott Tucker's Level 5 stuff being liquidated at fire-sale prices, we discuss the new LMP1 project from Ginetta, some Supercars news, and a hypothetical question about Alonso and his career. This week's episode is brought to you by Hunziker Design.

Pat's In Charge

Everybody else was unavailable so I decided to grab my buddy Ryan and do the show myself. I also had to edit this episode, so apologies that it's uh, a bit rough. We talk about a lot of F1, we talk about how good F2 is this year, and all the rest of the news. Also, we gush about the 919 EVO and what China might be up to. I had fun, and I hope it comes across in the show.

We've returned for our sixty-nineth episode. It's Brad, Pat, Eric, and occasionally Stef chiming in for a great episode. We talked about some news, some race recaps, and had another round of Robin Miller MadLibs. Unfortunately, Stef's audio dropped recording right before the game, so... Anyway, we hope you can enjoy it regardless. Thanks for supporting us through 69 awesome episodes.

DFL with Racers AKA, the Ryan Eversley Interview

That's right! Pat somehow convinced Acura factory driver, podcast host, and tire salesman, Ryan Eversley, to sit down for nearly three hours on the record, going all over the place in terms of topics. It was a really good chat, and I'm really proud of how it turned out.

Life, The Universe, And Everything, Plus One

Oh boy, what a show we have for you this week! Stef, Brad, and Eric are all sitting around the mics this week to give you the pop culture references and lists of things wrong with their cars that you all crave. What? Racing? You wanted us to talk about racing? I guess we do that, too...Stef kicks off the show with a list of things wrong with her Parshalump race car, then we give a decent breakdown of all the racing from the weekend, most of which could not be watched at all. Brad gives an excellent unpaid advertisement for MTOD, We did get a chance to see the Supercars racing from Adelaide, but Trans Am at Sebring was untelevised, we just know it was a shitshow, and the Mint 400 was also untelevised, we just know it was awesome. Some NASCAR news, IndyCar testing news, still silly season in a few championships, there's some new F1 stuff, St. Pete GP is this weekend and looks to be pretty damn awesome.

NASCAR Or Adult Film Star?

This week on the DFL show we have Brad, Pat, Stef, Eric, and Joel, which makes for some excellent conversation. We have a ton to talk about, even though the racing season is pretty much over. Don't worry, though, because we're only a couple of weeks away from IMSA's pre-season test, and a couple weeks after that is the Daytona 24, so we won't have much downtime. The only race of any note this weekend was the Gulf 12 Hours, and Eric has a quick report from that event.After that, we have some Audi LMP1 news, a bit of F1, some NASCAR title sponsor news, Indycar, WEC's new regulations, IMSA's new regulations, DTM schedule clash with Le Mans, And some Aussie Supercars news. Pat says if the Merc seat doesn't go to Bottas, he'll eat Stef's old jar of Vegemite (fingers crossed they hire Wehrlein)! We actually have a few listener questions, plus a listener-submitted game we're lovingly calling "NASCAR or Porn Star" (thanks Bill!), then we give away only one award this week, and leave to celebrate Christmas. Enjoy!
