Anthony Alfredo joined 2018 Drone Racing League (DRL) World Champion Paul “NURK” Nurkkala in a fascinating conversation, where the two were interviewed by StarTalk host and renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Tyson, along with neuroscientist Dr. Heather Berlin, explored the mental intuitive processes required for NASCAR and DRL racing.
“It’s really interesting to compare how our minds work during competition,” stated Alfredo. “Through our conversation with Neil and Heather, we found both Nurk and I share a lot of common elements when it comes to racing and how we process certain events unfolding before us in split seconds. It will be really exciting and informative to watch the whole conversation on NBCSN, especially before a race like Talladega, where so much of this applies particularly to this type of racing.”
The entire interview with Alfredo and DRL’s ‘Nurk’ can be seen live on Saturday, June 20 on NBCSN at 12 p.m. ET. Catch the NASCAR Xfinity Series Unhinged 300 at Talladega Superspeedway live Saturday, June 20, beginning at 5:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports One and will be broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
