From high atop Iowa Speedway, Tab Boyd keeps watch. Sporting three radios connected to his headset, he’s the eye in the sky guiding Sam Hornish Jr. out of the garage during a practice run.
“You got one coming out of turn four right now but after that you’re clear … C’mon … lotta room. You got one ten back but other that you’re good-ta-go … and clear .. clear-clear”
With a headset-sunglasses-cap combination that gives him the look of an NFL defensive coordinator, Tab Boyd works for Team Penske spotting for Joey Logano in NASCAR Sprint Cup and Hornish in NASCAR Nationwide.
