The Chrome Horn, episode 40: USA Today's Nate Ryan

When they're not focused on race coverage or getting berated by Tony Stewart, the NASCAR media corps members are a pretty fun bunch. Today we talk with USA Today's Nate Ryan, who holds forth on everything from the Hall of Fame vote to attendance woes to, yep, Dale Earnhardt Jr. We also hit him with the classic "Which NASCAR driver would you want driving your getaway car?" question, and he comes through big. It's some fine listening, and you can read more of Nate's stuff every day at USA Today and via Nate's Twitter page at @nateryan. Enjoy!
