ITP focus is on the coverage of racing-worldwide. “IN THE PITS has enjoyed great success throughout its 550+ episodes,” stated PMM President Larry O’Donohue. “The ITP show started with Craig Murto, editor and publisher of Late Model Racer Magazine and syndicated columnist. We soon added Dave Reininger, senior editor of and veteran INDY Car spotter. Later came Dirt and NASCAR Late model racer Jason “The Juice” Smith as well as drag racing hall of famer Johnny Rocca”.
