A statement from WWTR Executive VP & GM Chris Blair on the passing of Ken Squier

ST. LOUIS (November 16, 2023) – “It was through Ken’s play-by-play and storytelling that I fell in love with the sport of NASCAR at a very young age. In addition to his magical narrative of some of the greatest moments in racing, I also looked up to Ken for his accomplishments as a short track promoter, of Thunder Road Speedbowl in Barre, Vermont. He brought the same passion you would hear on a race broadcast to the weekly shows at arguably one of the greatest tracks in America.

“One of the most rewarding moments of my career came many years ago when I was a keynote speaker at the RPM Promoter’s Workshop in Daytona. Following my presentation, I had a great conversation with Ken, and he complimented me on it. A simple ‘good job’ from the man who brought racing into my living room when I was nine years old is a memory I will never forget. It means more to me than any trophy or award.”
