A Message For Our Local Racing Community

For a number of years, I've been reporting national and local racing results on WAPL's In The Draft. And while its easy to pronounce the names of NASCAR drivers just because I hear them on a weekly basis, its just as easy for me to completely obliterate some the names of our local drivers. You've heard it. Hell, there's some names that I'll pronounce different ways each time I read it off. No, I don't do it on purpose. I just don't have the correct pronunciation of your name.

So here's what I need from y'all. If I'm mispronouncing someone's name during In The Draft, e-mail me and let me know how it should be read. I feel bad not knowing I'm butchering a driver's name so help a brother out and catch my In The Draft reports Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 1:40 on 105.7 WAPL... "Your Station For Speed".
