“The Dave Despain Show” will debut April 25 at 8 p.m. on MAVTV.
MAVTV has ordered 26 episodes of “The Dave Despain Show.” The 30-minute format gives the veteran interviewer the opportunity to sit with racing legends, current superstars and rising stars.
Debuting with NHRA superstar John Force, guests this season include Clint Bowyer, Cory Kruseman, Dennis Anderson, Bobby Unser, Scott Bloomquist, Kyle Larson, Jeremy McGrath, Parnelli Jones, Ivan Stewart, Antron Brown, Forrest Lucas, and Dan Gurney.
Bob Patison, President of MAVTV, knows Despain as a respected motor sports journalist, and a giant asset to the fast-rising MAVTV channel.
“’The Dave Despain Show’ will be a flagship series for MAVTV,” Patison said. “Dave is one of the most respected names in motor sports journalism. He can now draw stories and memories from guests in a longer format that will definitely surprise and entertain MAVTV viewers.”
“MAVTV provided a format where I can really talk to people one-on-one and learn some of the behind-the-scenes truths,” Despain said. “It has been one of the coolest experiences yet and some of the stories are amazing. The quality and variety of guests is staggering, and the interviews reveal stories that even I haven’t heard in over 40 years of covering racing. The end result is deeply satisfying and I’m sure the viewers are going to love it.”
