THE HECTIC LIFE OF BRUNO MASSEL

 

Bruno Massel is one very busy man. Not only is he a TV host, as he hosts Truck U and Garage Squad on Velocity, but he is also an NHRA reporter for select races throughout the season. On top of that, when he can, he also competes as a drag racer.

“I literally have every hour accounted for, so at the beginning of the year, I sit down with the producers from the Garage Squad -- and we’ll also look at the NHRA calendar -- and we’ll also have to factor how far I am from an airport," Massel said. "We also factor in when we have a live window and what time we might be done. We also consider how long it would take to get to an airport and be back around 6 am the next morning to be on set for the Garage Squad shows. I’ll leave Thursday night right from set and get on a plane -- and all that plays in. It’ll literally take me a week to come up with a schedule that works, then we still have to fit the Truck U schedule in and what races I can work -- and what races I can actually race at.
