Barry Boone may best be known as half of the AMA Pro Flat Track official announcers at each of The Rolling Thunder Show's venues (and AMA Pro Road Racing events, as well), but Double B is also a very avid motorcyclist who puts in thousands of miles each year traveling to the races on a variety of equipment.
Barry started up a new venture during the off season in which he hosts a different motorcycle racing star on his new radio show 'Talking Motorcycles with Barry Boone,' and his show tonight is sure to grab the attention of any and all riders, racers and enthusiasts as he hosts his show tonight from Daytona Beach where he will have some of the stars of the series he announces on hand to help kick off the new racing season that is upon us.
Tonight's show includes 3-Time AMA Pro SuperBike Series Champion Josh Hayes, 2013 AMA Grand National Champion Brad 'The Bullet' Baker along with a handful of other racing greats that will descend upon the Daytona International Speedway and the Daytona Short Track tomorrow in what is considered the grand daddy of them all of season openers.
In the shot above, Barry can be seen announcing semi race #2 winner Steve Bonsey at the Springfield Mile II round of the 2013 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship on September 1. Bonsey had just taken the #80 Zanotti Racing/RGR Harley-Davidson XR-750 to the win at the Illinois State Fairgrounds mile oval qualifying race.
And in another shot from the Illinois State Fairgrounds mile oval, Double B can again be seen talking the crowd up after Bryan Smith had just taken the #42 Crosley Radio/Howerton Motorsports Kawasaki to the win in semi race #2 the day previously at the Springfield Mile I event on August 31.
Tonight will be the night for sure to be tuning in to check out what Barry and his list of esteemed and go-fast racers have to say as they get ready to hit the tracks tomorrow in what is sure to be a grand event in Daytona Beach.
