From the pits to the towers, TV and radio racing personality Steve Post has experienced a lot in a 30-year career.

The 1 p.m. talk is the last of the Center’s 2017 monthly Center Conversations talk series. It is sponsored in part by the Watkins Glen Area Chamber of Commerce and is open to all. The Racing Research Center is located at 610 S. Decatur St., Watkins Glen.

Post has been involved with racing since landing a job at Pocono Raceway in 1986 after graduating from Penn State with a degree in marketing.
Today he is a pit road reporter for the Motor Racing Network covering NASCAR’s Monster Energy Cup Series, Xfinity Series and Camping World Truck Series. He is co-host of “Winged Nation” on MRN.com and MAVTV and a contributor to NASCAR USA.
“To me, Steve Post is the quintessential ‘small town’ guy who made good on the ‘big stage’ through years of hard work, drive, persistence and a considerable amount of talent,” said Kip Zeiter, IMRRC’s coordinator of visitor services and outreach and a friend of Post’s.
“Steve is first and foremost a race fan, and anyone who has ever met him or listened to him on the Motor Racing Network knows this instantly. We invite everyone to spend an afternoon sharing the excitement of motor racing with someone who has spent his career ‘Speaking of Life in the Fast Lane’,” Zeiter said.

In January, Post will be the announcer at Indoor Auto Racing Series competition in Allentown, Pa., and Atlantic City, sponsored by Area Auto Racing News.
This series features TQ midget cars, and one of the cars will be on display at the Racing Research Center for Post’s talk. The Center is organizing a bus trip to the Albany, N.Y., Indoor Auto Racing Series race on Feb. 10.
