Or show starts off with Kevin Oeste and Mike “Q-Ball” Clarke sharing the story of his Kevin’s recent invite from Jimmy Shine and Billy Gibbons to be a guest at a recent ZZ Top concert! Kevin was super excited, and it only escalated when the topic shifts to recap the amazing new Hot Rod, Kustom, Street Machine, and Truck event called the Triple Crown of Rodding! Kevin, Kelle, and some of the V8 Speed & Resto Shop crew had an unbelievable time seeing some of the hottest cars in the country and hanging around with great friends and builders like Troy Trepanier, Alan Johnson, Gary Case, Chip Foose, Dave Kindig, Jesse Greening, Ken “Posies” Fenical, Roy Brizio, Mike & Jim Ring, Troy Ladd, Bobby Alloway, Phil and Jeremy Gerber, Johnathan Goolsby, and many more. While there, Kevin connected with Larry Erickson.. you know, the guy who designed CadZZilla… and his documentary project got a shot in the arm! It’s a heavy episode book-ended by Automotive Trivia and the usual nonsense, so we’re hope you’re fueled and ready for the V8 Radio Podcast!
New Zealander Burt Munro is a very famous motorcycle land speed racer, and was the subject of a film called the World’s Fastest Indian. We recently had the pleasure of meeting Burt’s granddaughter Robyn Munro at the 2023 SCTA Speed Week at the Bonneville salt flats. It was Robyn’s first time to the salt, and you could tell how much the experience moved her. Her next stop was to accept the Sturgis Hall of Fame induction for her legendary late grandfather Burt. Recorded in the tech inspection lanes at the Wendover Airport.

Back in 1963, Craig Breedlove famously set the world land speed record in the Spirit Of America, returning the title to the United States from Englishman John Cobb. And although Breedlove went on to set more records and go much faster than the 428.37 speed he achieved that day, we thought it would be fun to tell the story straight from a first hand account written in the pages of a 1963 Sports Illustrated Magazine. This is a great story, with quotes from Breedlove, and a historic vantage point from a very exciting time in land speed racing history. We hope you dig it! Hosted by Kevin Oeste.

Not many people can say they’ve set the record for piston-powered, wheel-driven streamliners, but not many people are Danny Thompson! Coming from a rich racing heritage started by his famous father Mickey Thompson, Danny had the remarkable opportunity to race in a variety of forms and bring his dad’s vision to life… while setting records of his own. Kevin Oeste chats with Danny about these and many more stories on this episode of the Bonneville Up To Speed Podcast. We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we do!
