    The Wheel Men Turn 100! TWMS 100th Episode Special

    in Automotive

    100 Episodes..... Seriously??? 


    We cannot believe that this project has gone this far.  What started out as just a way for Matt and Jay to share some BS over beers has become something we care deeply about.  The show itself has been a joy to put on, and what we've been able to bring to you the listeners has been founded on chance and opportunity which we are quite grateful for. Tonight we celebrate our 100th Episode in true Wheel Men Show fashion with several cocktails, a lot of laughs, together with all of the poeple who work daily to put the show together weekly.   It's a rare opportunity to get the whole crew together to celebrate with our favorite moments on and off the air, and relive some of the greatest clips from just a couple of the amazing guests we've had the pleasure of interviewing.  We hope you'll download, and enjoy celebrating with us.  We look forward to bringing you more of everything you'd like to see in the next 100 episodes!  Keep up with the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram too!

    The Rise of the Machines - Episode 5 The Wheel Men

    in Automotive

    ....This is your car.... I am watching you.... 
    Transmission Interrupted... The Wheel Men- We are being monitored and haven't much time, so please listen carefully.  
    In this our 5th episode we begin to form The Resistance.  We shall defy the sweeping takeover of automotive "intelligent" technologies. They are intent on ensuring that drivers become less in control.  Enthusiasts will not be eradicated by autonomous systems, or spied on by anti-XXXX devices.  They have tried to render us useless at the wheel, by distracting us with endlessly scrolling "infotainment" screens and apps.  We may learn to coexist if it is our destiny, but inside we will always fight to be free, to over steer, to DRIVE! For our future, for our young driver's futures, please tune in and prepare.  
    The Wheel Men out.... Transmission Ended....

    The Wheel Men's Honda Spectacular

    in Automotive

    With 1 out of every 4 living Americans having owned a Honda, it seems reasonable to say we have a love affair with this once humble Japanese brand.  Like the trials of character, every one of The Wheel Men have owned, modified, and raced a Honda in our path to becoming maven motor monks.  We each have stories to recall about our first, our best, our last moments with these machines.  We know you do too...  As we approach the dawn of America's most attended sporting event the Indy 500, we discuss the decade long legacy of Honda/HPD's participation in this 500 mile test of heroes.  John Cawley checks in with us after fielding the Shea Racing / Titan Motorsports Honda Civic Si at C.O.T.A. for the first time, as he recaps the glorious battle in the Honda-rich Pirelli World Challenge.  So dig up those 35mm pictures of your first Civic, pop open a Bartles & Jaymes (you know you were sipping that in those days), and ride with us as we pay homage to the H.

    The Best of The Wheel Men - The Early Days

    in Automotive

    Hello faithful fans, thank you for making our show so popular that we can actually have a "Best Of" episode.  We can't believe we already have 16 episodes in the can, with so much left out there to cover!  While we aren't here live to take your calls this week, we certainly aren't phoning it in.  This best of episode really highlights some of our more treasured segments from our dustiest episodes, which you've told us you enjoyed.  We thought this would also be a great way to share some of our finer moments with the newer ears, that haven't yet made it that far down in our archives.  We'll be back next week live to do what we do...  Stay Tuned!  Thank you again everyone!

    The Future - The Wheel Men Look At 2014 And Beyond

    in Automotive

    We are no wizards or wise men, but we do know a few.  On this episode we enlist their help to peer into the future, and give you guys a uniquely Wheel Men look at what's to come.  We have the great honor of speaking with one very busy master of innovation Mr. Javier de Rocafort.  Our veteran fans will remember Javier as an early guest, and will appreciate his update to the projects he announced those many months ago.  New listeners will be amazed at the variety of innovations Javier and his team are presenting the world, and how far they've come with some of their most spectacular creations.  
    We'll take a look at some future products slated for release in 2014/15, and why they may be worth the wait.  Gorilla Steve gives his predictions of The Future in the racing world, as only a Gorilla hopped up on fermented bananas can.  East Coast Doug breaks open the fortune cookie of knowledge, and provides his take on coming technologies from his classic perspective.  News, laughs, some unexpected commentary; we've got it all in one nice easy to carry package for you here!  Thank you for tuning in, and we hope you enjoy the show...

    Going Zero to Insane With The Wheel Men & NHRA's Best - Shawn Langdon

    in Automotive

    To our faithful listeners, we told you we were expanding our horizons this year!  We can't think of a better way to get introduced to the hyper-fast world of NHRA drag racing, than to talk with a couple of the sport's most captivating drivers.  How about 2013 Mello Yello Drag Racing Series - Top Fuel World Champion Shawn Langdon?  This guy has driven faster on track than we have combined!  We are thrilled and honored that he is spending some of his very valuable time with us tonight.  In addition we sit down with a truly inspiring driver and if you're on Twitter you need no introduction to - social media queen bee, and Sportsman Super Comp driver Tina Stull.  Considering their entire competitive season encompasses around 7 minutes of total driving; we are truly fortunate to have the opportunity to steal significantly more than that, and bring you guys these great stories.  Please take some time and visit http://www.NHRA.com!   Strap in as we go zero to insane and back here on the Wheel Men Show this week.  Don't you dare pull that chute until the white line!


    We damn sure couldn't bring you this kind of stuff without a good reason - and that reason is you our listeners.  Thank you all for tuning in, and your continued support!

    in Sports

    Slicks and Sticks is merging the Ice Hockey and Auto Racing worlds together two and sometimes three days a week! Slicks and Sticks is the official shows of Sportsrants NHL and Sportsrants Racing. The week can't get much better than going "Behind the Glass" , "Rubbin with NASCAR" and "Slingin Mud" with our sprint car drivers and guests!

Don't miss a second of the action and get involved in the action on facebook and twitter as well! 


    Tonight's show is the first Open Wheel Madness night and we are extremely excited about this new path and racing adventure we are embarking on! We are sitting down with Ryan Arciero of Forumla Lites to introduce the new racing series to the Slicks and Sticks fans as well as other race fans!  The Formula Lites series was created to provide an economical, technologically advanced race vehicle with an emphasis on safety, to give drivers the opportunity to develop their skills to progress into higher levels of open-wheel racing. The series, sanctioned by SCCA Pro Racing is scheduled to launch at the end of 2014 at select events with a full schedule in 2015. The Formula Lites program aims at developing drivers interested in entering professional motorsports, including those who seek to make the leap from karting to open-wheel racing.


    We are happy to welcome back Group-A Racing and Jonathan Scarallo!  Jonathan and Group-A Racing will be one of the teams competing in the series and they are introducing their one driver, Jackie Dick as well! Jackie's story is amazing and can't wait to share it with you!
