NASCAR and MotorSports – From a Queer Perspective

The Flip Side of the Microphone – Lewis Franck

Lewis Franck with the late Dan Wheldon in Toronto - July 2011

Welcome to “The Flipside of the Microphone” – a new podcast series on Q4G.  Think…. Inside the Actors Studio….. but instead of an actor – we talk with a member of the NASCAR Media.  They travel from track to track each weekend sticking their microphones in front of our favorite drivers…. and I thought it would be intersting to flip the microphone around….. and get to know more about some of our favorite NASCAR jounalist.

Where did they grow up? What other jobs have they had? What’s the biggest story they ever broke?  All that plus we talk about the state of journalism at the track.

In this episode we talk with Lewis Franck (@LewisFranck) who writes for Reuters and Auto123.com.  Lewis is a New York kinda guy – so you might think he would be out of place at a race track – you would be wrong.  Lewis has covered nearly every type of motorsports for decades.

From being a lawyer – to starting out as a photographer – Lewis and talk about his path to becoming one of the most respected writers in motorsports.
