NASCAR podcast: Tim Fedewa

By

Tim Fedewa gets to see how unique the NASCAR season is every week with his view over the racetrack as a spotter for Stewart-Haas Racing drivers Chase Briscoe and Kevin Harvick. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, Fedewa has face-to-face interaction with his team as he does not go to the racetrack, nor is he allowed inside the garage area. In this week’s episode, he discusses that lonely feeling, plus:

  • Spotting in unfamiliar places at the track
  • What goes into picking his normal spotting position
  • Being a part of Chase Briscoe’s great season; keeping Briscoe focused
  • Being in awe of Kevin Harvick
  • How Fedewa has seen Harvick change as a fellow competitor and now teammate
  • If he had any reservations working with Harvick (who has been tough on teams)
  • What goes into a spotter/driver relationship
  • What makes a good spotter
  • Drivers who have impressed Fedewa from the spotter’s stand
  • The hardest part of the job
  • Why Fedewa stuck with spotting as a second career
  • A Jimmy John’s sandwich, the Indianapolis pagoda, and losing his hard card
