Boyd competed full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2018 for SS Green Light Racing. Boyd won his first career Trucks Series race in October of 2019 at Talladega Superspeedway.

I was introduced to Spencer by the crew at Danbury's American Pavement Specialists when they were sponsoring his truck at Daytona back in 2021. We did a few segments with Spencer in anticipation of the event and we realized he just fits on our show.

We caught up with Spencer on the Friday (9/1/23) edition of the I-95 Morning Show, in anticipation of the 2023 NASCAR playoffs. We asked the lifetime driver who is Connecticut's best NASCAR driver of all-time?

Lou: You mentioned Joey Logan and Connecticut, I was wondering I know we don't have a rich NASCAR history here but who would you say is the best Connecticut driver of all-time, is it Logano? 

Spencer: "Oh man, Randy Lajoie. Randy LaJoie, I'm putting him at the top."

Lou: Oh OK, another name we always heard growing up around here was Jerry Nadeau 

Spencer: "Yeah, that is a big one too man." 

That was just a portion of our discussion, we talked to Spencer about a variety of things. We asked him if there is a particular driver that pisses him off on the track, if NASCAR has groupies and if he'll play spoiler in the upcoming playoffs. You can hear all of Spencer's answers in the full interview below.

Spencer even gave us a shout out from Daytona in 2021.

Danbury Area Folks Share Their NFL Fandom for Playoffs

I am an Oakland/LA/Las Vegas Raiders fan, and have been since I was a kid and I'm often outnumbered in NFL conversations, but not completely alone. In the NFL, there are fans of all kinds in every city in America.

Before the Raiders losing playoff game against the Bengals last weekend, I reached out to my friends who are Raiders fans and asked them to send me a photo of them wearing a jersey or celebrating the team in some way. I had a great response and it kicked off a fun sports conversation but it was for Raiders fans only.

I wanted to give the same opportunity to all NFL fans in the Greater-Danbury area, whether their team was in the playoffs or not. I sent out the call on my radio show and on social media and these are the responses I got back.
