ICYMI: Badger B-Ball Star Will Spot For RCR At Road America


Nailing a half-court buzzer beater? Cake. Spotting a NASCAR Nationwide Race for Richard Childress Racing? Yeah, that’€™s a different situation.

One that University of Wisconsin guard Ben Brust will find himself in on Saturday at Road America. Brendan Gaughan told Steve Byrnes on NASCAR Race Hub that Brust would be one of his alternate spotters during the race.

"€œHe’€™s a competitor," said Gaughan, "€œHe’€™ll be able to keep a level head. He’€™ll be able to spot that corner for me."

No pressure, Ben. But good luck. And in a pinch, they may even be able to use you in the pits.

Elsewhere, Travis Pastrana and Regan Smith took to the streets of Chicago to raise money for the Charlie Dean Leffler Charity Fund.

Here’s what else is buzzing in the NASCAR world on Friday, June 21st.
