Racing Roundup-Arizona, the fastest and most important two hours on radio, is an independently owned and produced motorsports show and has become the motorsports fan's destination for Phoenix and the Southwest. The fast-paced show is based on Terry Jeffords-owned and produced The Racing Roundup Show in Milwaukee, WI. Since Jeffords untimely death in 2000, the Milwaukee show's host and Speed Channel announcer, Jim Tretow has been the driving force behind the program. We congratulate The Racing Roundup Show in Milwaukee on celebrating their 27th anniversary of broadcasting in 2011.
