On today’s podcast, Metcalf shares how a former college football player becomes a NASCAR pit-crew coach, why he’s passionate about leadership, his favorite NASCAR story, and the importance of being an example of Jesus to those who are suffering injustices.

"Faith by cheering the heart keeps it free from the fear which, in times of pestilence (deadly or virulent disease or plague), kills more than the plague itself." – Spurgeon Wore a pair of Kobes to @disupdates in Feb and this shirt yesterday for @chadwickboseman. This last one hits home as my wife and father are cancer survivors. I'm tired of crying. I'm tired of losing heroes in the black community. Not all heroes wear capes; we ALL can do a better job of supporting each other. Most people have lost something or someone close to them in 2020. However, I still believe something good – change – is coming. Until we get there, don't lose F🖤ITH, don't lose H💗PE and don't lose L❤VE. 👊🏾👊🏾 📸 : @mmcfadden5
