Steve Parker's World Racing Roundup
Sunday starting at 5pm

Last week it seemed a given that NASCAR's Jimmie Johnson was headed for an unprecedented fourth straight Sprint Cup championship, but his spin on the third lap of last Sunday's race in Texas shook-up all the leaders' standings. Now Mark Martin has a real shot at his first title! Ron Hornaday has tied-up his fourth Camping World Truck Series title while the Nationwide Series is still up in the air. Plus all the latest on the "silly seasons" in all the racing series in the world. The call-in number is: 213-341-4353. Join in!
