Episode 58 2013 Summer Death Race Part II


Fri, 19 Jul 2013 15:45:43 +0000

Part Two picks up on Friday evening June 21. We begin with Andy Weinberg speaking to the familes and crew members shortly after the athletes were sent off to build the “Stairway to Heaven”.  As we continue on, we give you a sneak peek inside the mind of Joe Desena as we followed him around as much as possible. You’ll hear how he deals with the racers as they decide to quit, keep going, or in one case, beg to be DQ’d.

We also catch some various racers thoughts and feelings throughout the next 48-72 hours. We end with two finishers, Erica Matta and Andrew Hostetler. This duo sums up their experience and the DR experience as a whole rather well.

Today’s episode is sponsored by Superhero Scramble. This awesome race has 3 more races to go this year including the marathon distance SuperVillian to take place in Illinois on August 24th.
