Wally Olczak’s Wild Road America Recap!

In this very unique OSUSC podcast episode, the great Wally Olczak stepped in for Jimi as show co-host for the full event and results recap from OSUSC 2016 Road America. If you know Wally you’ll know he has a fun way of explaining things that keeps you smiling and laughing….and he didn’t disappoint!

As a reminder, the Road America event is an incredibly unique one in that all of the competitive driving segments are done in a SINGLE day, yet the event itself is stretched out over a full weekend that included a tour of SNAP-ON Tools, a NASCAR Xfinity race, and a Saturday night Karting Enduro! Even cooler than that was that there were over 10 first timers at the event as well!

We hope that you enjoy the show, and thanks for listening!

-Rob & Wally
