Veteran announcer Brian Olson and seasoned drag racing guru Carl Robinson have been named as the announce team for the new X-treme Drag Racing League’s inaugural season.
The duo will serve as the voices of the X-DRL for its online live broadcasts and for the live audience at each of the nine X-DRL races during its debut campaign.
The 2013 X-DRL season begins on April 6-7 with the X-DRL Spring Nationals at Osage Casino Tulsa Raceway Park, and includes nine stops at many of the nation’s most prestigious tracks.
A 40-year veteran in the sport and an announcer for the past 31 years, Olson has announced races in the NHRA, IHRA, ADRL and much more, and also served as a television analyst for the likes of SPEED, Fox Sports and MAV-TV.
Olson has worked in all facets of drag racing, from Stock Eliminator to managing Top Fuel dragster teams, and his personal business, Olson Paint and Body Shop, entered its 29th year of service in 2013.
Robinson has been involved in drag racing since the late 1980s, including stops at Weld Racing Wheels and, since 2006, Mickey Thompson Tires and Wheels, which is also the sponsor of the X-DRL Top Sportsman class.
He also has been a regular guest in the announcer’s booth at various doorslammer events over the past several years.
