The Nitty Gritty:
Welcome to Episode 37 of the Pro-Touring.com Podcast – our first show of 2013!
For those new to the scene, the Pro-Touring.com podcast show is hosted by myself and Larry Callahan, the owner of Pro-Touring.com.
The show is sponsored by the fantastic hot rod wiring supply company, Ron Francis Wiring, and we’re very appreciative that they were our FIRST EVER show sponsor, and the first sponsor to re-sign for 2013!
Hobaugh Cleans House at RTTC 4!
Run To The Coast 4 (held in El Toro, CA) is in the books, and so is our first event of the season!

Feature Interview with Greg Glass:
R U Faster Than A Redneck Creator
Just prior to the premier of the “R U Faster Than A Redneck” TV series, Larry had the chance to sit down with Greg Glass (President of Brentwood Communications International ) and discuss an inside look at the show itself. If you think the series is cool and would like the hear the 5-year story on how it came to be, be sure to listen in!
The show is running on the Speed Channel (Channel 607 on DirecTV). Since several Pro-Touring favorites were featured on that show we’ll be sure to give you regular season updates as the series progresses!
