Uncle Joe Benson at the Auto Club Speedway NASCAR race, February 2010.
February 19 - 21, 2010: Starting with a live broadcast of his Friday afternoon KLOS show from a pit side suite, J.B. was working non-stop at the Auto Club Speedway's NASCAR Sprint Cup Auto Club 500, just like he's done every race since the track opened in 1997. In addition to hosting the Fan Zone's big stage (featuring Styx Sunday morning), he did a number of major driver interviews and called both the NASCAR Nationwide and NASCAR Sprint Cup races from the announcers' booth.
