Episode 200 -- NASCAR Icon Richard Petty
2022/06/22
Richard Petty … what else do we really need to say? NASCAR Hall of Fame inaugural inductee. Seven championships … seven Daytona 500 wins … the number 43 … 200 wins. It's a perfect fit for our 200th episode. It would also not be appropriate to celebrate our 200th episode without including our listeners, so we asked everybody to send in their questions for hosts Rick Houston and Steve Waid … and we even got a few from PAST INTERVIEW guests Larry McReynolds, Jeff Hammond, Kenny Wallace and Las Vegas Motor Speedway President and General Manager Chris Powell.

Episode 199 -- Richard Childress Racing-Dale Earnhardt Tire Changer Will Lind Part 2
2022/06/15
NOTE: Have a question to ask hosts Rick Houston and Steve Waid for next week's milestone 200th episode? Tweet us @thescenevault and use #vault200, or email a voice file to rick@thescenevaultpodcast.com! In the second and final installment of our interview with Richard Childress Racing legend Will Lind, he discusses all the Daytona 500s that got away from Dale Earnhardt and what it meant to him personally when the NASCAR icon finally won the sport’s biggest race in 1998. Will also tells our listeners about the Goodyear-Hoosier tire wars, a controversial decision by the RCR crew to replace Earnhardt’s missing tires at Charlotte, the transition between RCR crew chiefs Kirk Shelmerdine and Andy Petree and his own decision to take a step back from life on the road. Then in our second segment, we take a long look inside the October 18, 1990 issue of Winston Cup Scene. This late-season, off-week issue features a preview of the conclusion to the battle for the 1990 Winston Cup championship, news of the passing of former team and track owner L.G. DeWitt, Rick Mast's Busch Series win at New Hampshire, the aftermath of a very scary pit-road clash between Alan Kulwicki and Ernie Irvan at Charlotte and an equally as frightening accident during testing at Rockingham for Richard Petty.

Episode 198 -- Former Richard Childress Racing-Dale Earnhardt Tire Changer Will Lind
2022/06/08
This week's show begins with a simple challenge ... pay it forward. Do something nice for someone else, without any expectation of receiving anything in return. Will Lind got his start in the sport working with James Hylton, but he went on to have a LONG and successful career with Richard Childress Racing and was probably best known for changing rear tires on Dale Earnhardt’s Flying Aces/Junkyard Dogs pit crews of the late 1980s and early 90s. This week, Will talks about his hardcore early days in the sport, when he went to GREAT lengths to carve out a place for himself in the garage, his beginnings with RCR and the Dale Earnhardt he knew away from the track. The September 2, 1982 issue of Grand National Scene marked a fairly significant milestone in the publication’s history. It was Scene’s first issue with a standard tabloid size, rather than the folded, two-cover format it had used since its very first issue back in the spring of 1977. In the pages of that week's issue, it wasn’t exactly breaking news that Darrell Waltrip won at Bristol. This was his fourth in a row there, but it wasn’t exactly easy … and surprise of all surprises … there was just a wee little bit of controversy that night. Bobby Allison and Harry Gant weren't exactly happy with NASCAR or Darrell Waltrip. Dave Marcis wasn't happy with Terry Labonte, and Terry Labonte AND Billy Hagan weren’t happy with Dave. After reading co-host Steve Waid's column, Jimmy Means probably wasn’t very happy either after being made fun of for being so skinny. And finally … Bill Elliott … yes, THAT Bill Elliott got downright chatty with Gene Granger about the never-ending battle between Ford and General Motors, his season to date and safety.

Episode 197 -- Medal of Honor Recipients-NASCAR Fans Joe Marm and Bob Patterson
2022/05/30
NOTE: This episode contains vivid descriptions of the experience of combat. It may be too intense for some listeners. For this very special Memorial Day release, host Rick Houston had the honor of sitting down with Medal of Honor recipients Bob Patterson and Joe Marm to discuss their stories, their interest in NASCAR and why Bob is a big Kyle Busch fan.

EPISODE 196 -- TIM BREWER PART 3
2022/05/25
In the epic third and final installment of our interview with longtime NASCAR crew chief Tim Brewer, Tim talks about his and Junior Johnson’s 1991 suspension after a big engine was found in their car at Charlotte. He also remembers Bill Elliott coming on board with the team in 1992 … the early success … and then the crushing disappointment of losing out on that year’s championship. And if you thought Tim didn’t hold anything back in the first two installments of our interview … THIS episode is truly something to behold. Hosts Rick Houston and Steve Waid then thumb through the May 30, 1991 issue of Winston Cup Scene, which featured coverage of Davey Allison's dominant win in the Coca-Cola 600 and the furious response of Dale Earnhardt and Richard Childress. There's also news of Tim Brewer and Junior Johnson having their suspensions reduced from twelve weeks to four races.

EPISODE 195 -- TIM BREWER PART 2
2022/05/18
This week in the second installment of our interview with longtime … and outspoken … NASCAR crew chief Tim Brewer, Tim talks about his move to M.C. Anderson and why he considers that to be the biggest mistake of his career. He also guides us through some tumultuous years financially with Blue Max Racing and Tim Richmond, during which it was left to HIM to cover checks to keep the team going. Then it was back to Junior Johnson & Associates, to work with drivers Neil Bonnett, Terry Labonte and Geoff Bodine. And … yes … Tim talks about some of the … let’s just call ‘em rules interpretations he made over the years. That led to a couple of quotes that go STRAIGHT to the top of our favorites over the years on this show. Hosts Rick Houston and Steve Waid then dig into the September 9, 1982 issue of Grand National Scene. Cale Yarborough scores the fifth Southern 500 victory of his career, with rumors circulating that his car owner … M.C. Anderson … wanted him to run for the 1983 Winston Cup championship. The win comes after a heated late-race battle with Richard Petty, during which sheet metal WAS traded back and forth several times. There’s also a story on a couple of NASCAR movies that were in production at the time … and … finally … a piece on the whuppings drivers had received over the years.

EPISODE 194 -- TIM BREWER PART 1
2022/05/11
After some reactions to last week's release of CLIPS from our L.W. Wright interview, longime NASCAR crew chief Tim Brewer talks about his earliest days in racing at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, quitting school and hitting the road as a young teenager, the infamous Talladega boycott of 1969 and an encounter with NASCAR Founder Bill France Sr. Brewer got his big break when he went to work for an independent driver by the name of Richard Childress, before winding up with Junior Johnson & Associates. In our second segment, hosts Rick Houston and Steve Waid leaf through the October 27, 1977 issue of Grand National Scene. Donnie Allison wins at Rockingham and Cale Yarborough clinches the championship with two races remaining on that year's schedule. There’s also a story illustrating the relationship that existed once upon a time between Richard Childress and Junior Johnson.

EPISODE 192 -- GIL MARTIN PART 3
2022/04/27
After teasing next week's interview guest, we conclude our three-episode arc with Gil Martin’s cancer story. It’s powerful … because he went at his Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma (CTCL) diagnosis with the heart of a racer. If this doesn’t work, try that … over and over and over again. In honor of that cancer story … as we have in the past with others in the NASCAR community who have dealt with such serious issues … we let it stand on its own and forego our standard second segment.

EPISODE 191 -- GIL MARTIN PART 2
2022/04/20
Big news in the world of NASCAR history this week ... the rebirth of North Wilkesboro Speedway, thanks to the efforts of a small group of Wilkes County diehards and Speedway Motorsports! In our first segment this week, we share the second installment of our interview with longtime NASCAR crew chief Gil Martin. Gil shares his memories of his first Winston Cup victory as a crew chief, which came in November 2001 at New Hampshire with Robby Gordon behind the wheel of the Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet. Gil also shares the story of the Corvette he was promised ... but never received ... following that win. Then, it's on to the sometimes topsy-turvy relationship he shared with young phenom Kevin Harvick, RCR's decision to bring back the number 3 and the urgency of winning the pole for the 2014 Daytona 500. In our second segment, hosts Rick Houston and Steve Waid break down the November 29, 2001 issue of Winston Cup Scene. That week's paper covered the Battle of the Gordons at New Hampshire, in which Robby gave Jeff a nudge up and out of the lead en route to that first win with Gil. Also, a Busch Series season review package relived some rather testy quotes from competitors.

EPISODE 190 -- GIL MARTIN PART 1
2022/04/13
This week ... host Rick Houston and his sons Jesse and Adam join listener Bill Stripling for a memorable weekend of decidedly Old School and frigid short-track racing at Martinsville Speedway. In the first of what will be three installments with longtime NASCAR Busch Series and Cup crew chief Gil Martin, he takes us through his very first days in the sport. A buddy of his needed help out at the old Nashville Fairgrounds Raceway … and Gil didn’t particularly want to go. But he went any way, a move that very obviously turned out to change the course of his life. Gil also remembers Bobby Hamilton and the genesis of Filmar Racing, and the growing pains that Nashville-based operation faced with four very different drivers … Bobby Hamilton, David Green, Jeff Burton and finally, Kenny Wallace. Finally, Gil takes us through his move to Richard Childress Racing. In our second segment, Rick and co-host Steve Waid leaf through the April 16, 1992 issue of Winston Cup Scene. Davey Allison wins at North Wilkesboro, despite being battered, bruised and sore from an accident the race before in Bristol. Bobby Hillin gets put in lockdown due to a run-in with Kyle Petty … and there’s actually a connection to that incident AND our new NASCAR Technical Institute studio. Oh … but wait … there’s more. Dave Marcis helps pave the way for NASCAR to make its first appearance at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a young Dale Jarrett tumbles out of his car while trying to leave North Wilkesboro, a Junior Johnson & Associates crew member is unable to go on an important mission? Why? Because he’s locked in a porta-john. Finally, there’s an almost unbelievable connection … again … to our deal with John Dodson at the NASCAR Technical Institute.
