Sampling of Speed

From fashion to travel to what he describes as a “methodical” driving style, Scott Speed is unique. And never does Scott Speed the individual shine through more than on Sirius Satellite Radio’s “Tradin’ Paint.”
Every Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET (Sirius channel 128), Speed trades banter with co-hosts Steve Post and Chocolate Myers. If you missed Speed’s first few rounds on “Tradin’ Paint,” visit our audio section at www.redbullracingusa.com for the complete segments. Here’s a sampling of Speed:

On Red Bull: “I have Red Bull in my blood. We just fit so good together.”

On action sports: “When I do something like snowboarding or an extreme sport, because it’s not something I’m used to doing I get a huge adrenaline rush from it. It’s like I’m a 13-year-old kid trying to set the world on fire again.”

On a recent trip to the Dominican Republic: “I have to say it’s been a very intense experience. It’s a very interesting culture, for sure. For example, when we arrived at our hotel Sunday night around 1:30 in the morning, we were downstairs at the casino. And along with the 15 or so hookers that were downstairs there was a guy rolling right past us with a gun in his hand … as he puts it in the back of his pants. I thought that was an extreme introduction to this culture.”

On the Daytona 500: “Normally, I was the one doing the racing. I’ve never been to watch a big race like that. To hang in hospitality and watch it from a spectator point of view, it was amazing. It was an awesome race as well. With Red Bull, we always have a good time, and Daytona was no exception.”

What's with all the attention on Scott Speed? He's weird and will have to do some changing to fit into NASCAR! How about more stuff on our boys BV & AJ

Scott is an interesting person, the two posts above reflect the stereotype of the Nascar fan everyone has. It is the RBRT blog and Scott is part of the team. I enjoy his time on Sirius. We need more personality in stock car racing.

I wasn't stereotyping Scott, I just want to know what he did with his hair because for one it looks like it is two different colors. I know this sport needs some personality, but I don't think it needs drivers dying their hair with Clorox.

I think he looks pretty BA in those Ray Bans. I say bring on more Scott Speed if he's going to bring the attitude and spunk.

Why would Scott have to change to fit into NASCAR? I like the different personalities that are in our sport. Why make someone into something they aren't? Red Bull Racing isn't all about BV and AJ. Thanks for letting us know more about Scott Speed. He's really interesting! Good luck this weekend in Vegas, boys. I hope we see 2 RBR Toyota Camry's in the show.

You get all AJ and all BV all the time. Give it a break. There are 3 Red Bull drivers driving stock cars now, not just two like last year. Why are you people so exclusive? Geez, give the boy some credit. He WAS in F1 after all.
