NASCAR Sprint Cup star Kurt Busch had an unusual assignment last Friday at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
The 2004 series champion spent part of the day taping an intro for this Saturday night's edition of "America's Most Wanted," the popular FOX TV show hosted by John Walsh.
"John was at the track filming on Friday and it was great to meet him and do the filming," Busch said. "I was in my Miller Lite fire suit and we did a nice little interview first. Then I did the introduction to a segment where they are looking for a woman named Jenny Liang.
"She was living in (Las) Vegas and working at the Mirage Casino when she supposedly murdered her boyfriend and then went on the run. I really enjoyed spending the time with John and I hope that our efforts add support in helping them capture this woman."
Never miss a local story.
One of the things that impressed Busch most about the taping was Walsh's companions.
"John has an entourage of about 20 people, with two armed guards following him at all times," Busch said. "With his show helping take down nearly 1,000 dangerous fugitives in the past 20 years, it's pretty easy to understand why he has that kind of support crew."
The show airs Saturday at 9:00 p.m.
