When you’ve spent more than 20 years of your life on the road as a NASCAR crew chief and NBC analyst, you’re bound to meet some interesting characters along the way. Letarte on Location brings you closer to all kinds of personalities that Steve has connected with throughout the years traveling the circuit. So sit down, buckle up and get ready for some “off the grid” conversations.
Steve goes on location from Seneca Lodge in Watkins Glen, NY for a lively discussion with Boris Said. Considered one of the best road-course racers in all of motorsports, Said became a cult-like figure, especially at Watkins Glen, with his legion of fans known as "Said Heads". The two discuss Said's career in racing, highlighted by his success in sports cars driving for BMW. Among Said's accolades are wins in both the Rolex 24 at Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring. In 2005, he became the first American to win the grueling 24 Hours at Nürburgring. Said also earned victories in both the Xfinity and Gander Outdoors Truck Series.
