Ice to Asphalt — and Back


Shaun Peet, an imposing jack man, and Brian Haaland, a fleet-footed tire changer, will be featured during TNT’s pre-race broadcast before the Lenox Industrial Tools 300.

The two crewmen on the No. 83 are former ice hockey players. Peet (above) played at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H., spending four seasons as a defenseman for the Big Green from 1994 to 1998. The 32-year-old went on to play at the minor league level. Haaland was a goaltender at the University of Nebraska-Omaha from 1999 to 2004.

They’ll spend Thursday evening at Tri-Town Arena in Hookset, N.H., reliving old times on the ice with TNT pit reporter Lindsay Czarniak. The segment “Lindsay on Location” will air during Sunday’s pre-race broadcast beginning at 12:30 p.m. ET.

Be sure to check out the Nos. 83 and 84 in Friday's first practice (noon ET) at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Then they'll qualify at 3:10 p.m.

Good Luck today in qualifying boys!
For sure will watch the pre race for the crew members. It's nice to hear all the "great" comments about Red Bull Racing now, on Sirius radio they have been talking up the team lots! "The up and coming team" :)
Keep up the good work team!
