More diversity on Tech House & Speed this week including one Nissan driver who got his start on the PlayStation. We also have a record holder going up the mountain at Pikes Peak. We have a Starworks team that's looking to climb back on the winning train this weekend at Grand-Am's Six Hours at The Glen. And a drift team owner adding road racing to his schedule. He'll also be at The Glen this weekend. It's a lineup you'll only get on Tech House & Speed. In Segment One we talk with Jann Mardenborough, 2011 PlayStation GT Academy winner beating out 90,000 competitors to get a rung on the Nissan Motorsports racing ladder. Mardenborough saw his first motor race in 2010 at Le Mans. This year he was racing in the 24-hour classic and was leading the LMP2 category for a while before finishing fourth. His parents don't tell him to put that computer away any more. In Segment Two we talk with Mike Ryan, record holder for trucks going up the mountain at Pikes Peak. This weekend he'll have a new hot-rodded truck from Gale Banks equipped with a turbo and supercharger. The Banks Turbo Diesel Freightliner is more than a truck, though. It might be the world’s largest racing machine with mid-engined technology rivaling any racing prototype. In Segment Three we talk with Ryan Dalziel and Alex Popow, Starworks Motorsports, who had a dream season last year winning at Le Mans, the ALMS and Grand Am. This year they're third in points just three points out of first but they're looking to get back on the winning train this weekend at the Six Hours at The Glen. Finally in Segment Four we talk with Tyler McQuarrie, a team owner and event winner in Formula Drift. But this weekend at The Glen he'll add road racing back to his schedule when he accepts a ride in the C.J. Wilson Racing Mazda MX-5 in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. McQuarrie has won at the World Challenge level so he's no stranger to road racing. He'll explain how it might be his first love.
