Columbus, Ohio (20 February 2014) – For Ohio race fans, there is a new way to catch up on the latest racing news as Mike Shank and former Ohio State and NFL player Matt Finkes will once again join forces as hosts of a new television show.
Beginning with the first-ever broadcast on February 21, Time Warner Cable Sports Channel will televise the new weekly show, Pit Pass, every Saturday morning at 10:00 AM ET.
Shank and Finkes formerly hosted the Rocky Fork Power Hour, a weekly Columbus, Ohio radio show that delved into all things racing from NASCAR to IndyCar to sportscars, with Shank also showcasing insights into his own IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship race team based in Pataksala, Ohio.
“It’s crazy how this has grown because Mike was just on the (radio) show as a guest and then we started having him on all the time and he was the co-host, and now we’re taking on this new show by moving to TV,” said Finkes, who has found himself recruited to help Shank’s pit crew on occasion. “This is a big challenge, to add the visual element of what we are doing from the radio show, but it is pretty exciting and I think fans are going to have fun watching.”
