Tyler joins Luke to discuss the role of the promoter in today's world of bracket racing, the state of our sport, and its future. In their multi-faceted conversation the two touch on the history of big dollar bracket racing, the biggest challenge facing tracks promoting their own bracket events in 2021, and the stresses that go along with track management (that we'd never even consider as racers).
