Austin Cindric, Racing Heritage Leads Him In To Xfinity Playoffs-AUDIO

Columbus Ohio native Austin Cindric has known the sounds of racing since his first day on this earth.

He goes to bed at night with a photo of his grandfather, Jim Trueman, and his helmet from the Indy 500. That also gives him a connection with Ohio as Trueman was an Indy 500 winning team owner for Ohio’s own Bobby Rahal. He is also the founder for Red Roof in and former owner of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. That connection for Cindric is one that is extra special as he was nearly able to capture his first career win on the Lexington Ohio road Course in August.

Cindric is in his first full year of NASCAR Xfinity series racing. This season has seen him in the No. 12 and No. 22 for Penske Racing. He has also run the No. 60 for Roush-Fenway Racing. It’s a tough challenge, and Cindric said the last handful have been tough. The last five races he has been in three different car numbers, with 5 different crew chiefs. We talked about that, racing at Richmond and the playoffs, along with his racing family and more during NASCAR Xfinity Series Media Day.

If it races, I'll write about it, talk about it or shoot it with a camera.

I began pursuing a career in motorsports journalism immediately after attending college at Kent State University. I have hosted multiple Motorsports talk shows, worked in Country Music radio, and now i spend every day on the air in the morning with 1300 and 100.9 WMVO and in the afternoons watching the roadways around Central Ohio for 93.7 WQIO.

The excitement and the fans make everything I put out there worth while, it's been an exciting 15 years having covered everything from the Daytona 500 to the Rolex 24 and you can find me at pretty much any event run at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

What I like to bring is a look behind the scenes, a look at what and who makes the sport grow. From the guy that welds pieces back at the shop to the host in the tv booth.

Everyone has a story and I like to tell it. My main focus here at TPF is looking at the men and women behind the microphone and cameras.

My life long goal is to become a member of MRN or PRN Radio and bring the races to you. I hope that what I share now is enjoyable and gives you a unique look in to the world of motorsports.

See you at a track soon
