MRN's Steve Post Hits The Culinary Big Time

Steve Post
Motor Racing Network pit reporter Steve Post, also the co-host of’s weekly “Fast Food” program during the NASCAR season, will be featured in an upcoming episode of “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” on the Food Network. 

The show, titled “Soup, Salad and Seafood,” is hosted by Guy Fieri and will air Monday, Dec. 30, at 10 p.m. (EST).  It was taped in October at “PotPie,” a home-style restaurant in Kansas City, Mo.

Post says next week’s program is an outgrowth of a friendship he and Fieri have struck up in recent years. 

“We had a chance to interview Guy when he was Grand Marshal for a Sprint Cup Series race in Sonoma (Calif.),” Post said.  “We hit it off pretty good and talked about doing some more shows together, previewing great places to eat in upcoming race towns.” 

Their schedules merged again this year, in early October.  Fieri was in the Midwest to tape next week’s show and Post was on his way to Kansas Speedway for the Sprint Cup Series race.

“I shot him a note about being in Kansas City and the first thing he texted back was an invitation to one of their tapings,” Post recalls.  “The next morning at 7 a.m., I was headed to PotPie.  I assumed I was there to watch the taping and was just trying to stay out of the way when he (Fieri) grabbed a chair and said, ‘Post, sit here.’ 
“The next thing I know, we were sitting with cameras rolling talking about the incredible chicken pot pie that was served to me.” 

“Having Steve featured on ‘Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives’ with Guy Fieri accentuates the diversity of our staff,” said MRN President and Executive Producer David Hyatt.  “With ‘Fast Food’ on during the racing season, Steve Post brings the ‘Triple-D’ flair to race fans traveling to our wide array of NASCAR tracks, leaving them with the local flavor of our sport.” 

“Fast Food,”’s online tailgate party, is streamed live each Thursday during the NASCAR season, with Post and co-host Woody Cain searching for the best trackside recipes.  The show is part of Motor Racing Network’s exclusive lineup of online programming produced by Craig Moore and available for download at  The network’s full schedule of webcasts is also available through AudioNow simply by dialing 1-832-999-1717 from any telephone.
