EP035 Teleprompters, Hot Engines, and Noble Peace Prizes

Welcome to our show Unsealed: Life Beyond the Bolts! Each week, Kate Dillon from Crate Insider and Steve Hendren from Hendren Racing Engines go live on the Crate Insider Facebook page to chat about world events, random things, and to answer viewer questions.

To get you caught up, Biden was caught using a teleprompter and Trump was nominated for yet another Nobel Peace Prize. Once published, an article was under fire for misspelling Nobel and putting “Noble”. What do you guys think? Strategic marketing, or typo? Would news channels have ran the story of his new nomination without the typo? 

In this episode Kate also discusses some of her view points on gratitude and patriotism, as well as how she feels about upcoming trade show regulations. Steve goes over some of the most asked questions he gets, like “why is my engine running hot?” and as always, tells us how he really feels.
