Roger Monroe is a name that is known all over the country when you are talking about drag boat racing.

I interviewed Roger this morning on Kickin' Country 103.1. He said that this is his 35th year announcing drag boat races....and that he had announced car racing for seven years prior to that. Roger is not only the man who calls the races in such a passionate, exciting way, but he is such a great guy as well. He gets everyone pumped up for the next race as he unloads endless bits of knowledge about the sport, the racers, the boats, and so much more that he loves sharing with the fans!  As you enjoy this years Showdown in San Angelo, know that the man behind the microphone is the most celebrated announcer in the sport of drag boat racing.  Happy 35th Anniversary Roger Monroe! You are firing on all pistons and just getting warmed up!!
