Bringing the Heat: Brayton Laster Recounts His Racing Journey

On this episode of Bringing the Heat with Bryan Nolen, Nolen sits down with ARCA Menards Series driver Brayton Laster. Nolen and Laster talk about his start in his racing journey, the origin of his Pizza Man nickname and the increased car count for ARCA in 2024.

After the Laster conversation, Trey Lyle fills in the rest of the way for Nolen and is joined by Wyatt Watson. They discuss if Ryan Sieg should have done more on the final laps in order to prevent Sam Mayer from passing him for the NASCAR Xfinity Series win at Texas Motor Speedway.
