ELKHART, Ind. – John Force Entertainment launched a new drag racing show this week on the NHRA YouTube channel – Nitro Rewind. The internet based show is hosted by Bill Stephens with feature interviews from NHRA Top Fuel and Funny Car drivers. Terry McMillen, driver of the Amalie Oil/UNOH Top Fuel Dragster was one of the drivers interviewed about this week’s upcoming Houston event.
“I was excited to be a part of this inaugural show,” McMillen said as he made his way towards Houston. “This is a great opportunity to fill the void needed to not only promote the upcoming ESPN2 telecast, but also to give fans another chance to be a part of our locker room, the NHRA all access pass if you will. Plus with the beauty of technology everyone can watch it when and where they want.”
“We wanted to create a show that would set the table for the upcoming NHRA national event,” said Ashley Force Hood, president of John Force Entertainment. “Our goal is to get people excited about our races and hopefully tune into the great ESPN2 broadcasts. We are going to have a little bit of a recap of the previous race but most of the focus of each show will be on the next race coming up and what fans should be on the lookout for.”
After watching the initial show McMillen was even more enthused. “A lot of deserved credit is given to JFR for all of their accomplishments on the track,” McMillen said. “This is a huge undertaking with a lot of effort from their team that promotes the entire sport. I hope they get all the credit they deserve for the effort.”
