Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Matt and Drew ride with a NASCAR driver on Hey Kentucky!

KSR took the radio show to Kentucky Speedway yesterday morning, and then followed it up by filming Hey Kentucky there in the afternoon. As part of the fun, NASCAR driver Noah Gragson took Matt Jones and Drew Franklin for a spin in the pace car, all while conducting an interview in the process.

According to Matt, they got up to 135 mph around the track. And judging by the picture above, he was terrified while Drew wasn’t phased.

Now, the footage has been released, and it’s hilarious. Check it out below:

For the rest of the episode, Matt and Drew talked about a wide range of topics including Papa John’s dismissal at UofL, a drop in Kentucky football season ticket sales, and the latest UK basketball recruiting updates from the Peach Jam.
