Fort Mill, S.C. – December 9, 2016. Fans asked for it, so we picked up the check again! After 12,000 miles, 40 days, and 29 states, the highly anticipated Season Two of “Dinner With Racers” is finally here. Hosts, Sean Heckman and Ryan Eversley, used their Honda Odyssey fitted in Continental CrossContact LX20 tires, to record 28 episodes. Fans can download the first 14 today with the final 14 episodes coming December 16, 2016. All episodes can be downloaded at www.dinnerwithracers.com, or at iTunes. (FULL EPISODE LIST BELOW)

 

Following their 2015 debut that featured a month-long road trip recording 26 conversations over dinner with some of the most interesting characters in motorsports, the duo has done it again. Continuing the same theme from the debut season, Season Two follows a nearly identical format. A factory racing driver for Acura in World Challenge as well as a driver in the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, Eversley makes up half of the hosting lineup, with motorsport marketing / creative content veteran Heckman completing the duo. Using their unique blend of humor, insight, experience, as well as genuine love of the sport, Eversley and Heckman pick up right where they left off in Season One, exposing some of the most unique and entertaining stories from their variety of guests.

 

Meeting up with 28 racing greats over dinner, listeners will be exposed to a variety of personalities, ranging from NASCAR and IndyCar drivers, to some of the most respected engineers, mechanics, journalists, and broadcasters in the business. Stories cover everything from what it was like to be the first woman to qualify for the Indianapolis 500 and then Daytona 500; to giving up a contract worth over $2 million just to be a “good guy”; to turning a satiric twitter account in to a full-time job; as well as enjoying life after nearly three decades in prison.

 

For Eversley, a chance to continue the series was a welcome one, “I know it’s a cliché, but It truly is such an honor and a privilege to be able to do this.“ Eversley continued, “Both Sean and I were truly blown away by the fan support from Season One, it’s honestly something we weren’t expecting. It really meant a lot to get so many nice comments, and that kept us very motivated for Season Two. This show lives and dies by its guests, and we couldn’t have been luckier to have such a great group who were not only engaging and interesting, but also incredibly gracious with their time. It’s an absolute blast doing this, and we really appreciate Continental for continuing their support, as well as Honda for giving us an incredibly comfortable car for such a long trip.”

 

Heckman echoed Eversley’s sentiment simply stating, “What he said.“

 

The series will also continue to support less exposed musical acts, with each episode promoting a variety of musicians and bands at the close of every episode.
