June 27, 2013 – Derek Pernesiglio has been fortunate enough to have accomplished many things in Motorsports. He’s raced Midgets, TQ Midgets, Late Models and other types of cars. He’s been an announcer at Seekonk Speedway and spent “mic” time at several other tracks and major races and has interviewed many present stars of racing’s major leagues before they were household names.
He’s done it all with humility, passion and an energy that is contagious. Currently, Derek is the Pit Road Reporter for NASCAR’s K&N Pro Series broadcasts and he’s also in the process of reviving his racing career in an “Open” class Mini Outlaw at the Millbridge Speedway on Wednesday nights in the next several weeks.
RaceChaser Online’s Editor-In-Chief Tom Baker caught up with Derek at Millbridge on Wednesday night and sat down for about ten minutes of fun conversation about a variety of racing topics – you can listen in and enjoy the results of that post-race pitside chat just by clicking on the link below!
