"Jersey" Bill Connell

Bill may be a new talent – with a great, unique perspective – to Motorsports broadcasting, but Bill was an automobile racing fan before Dale Earnhardt was a rising star in the NASCAR constellation.

Traveling to speedways from Bristol to Homestead, Bill collected Winston Cup-branded replica cars and racing collectibles at races from California to the Carolinas. A native of New Jersey, Bill grew up watching NASCAR races and the USAC Championship Series as often as possible.

A tall, intense and knowledgeable racing fan, Bill started his real world career as a law enforcement officer as a Military Policeman in the U.S. Army. Upon being honorably discharged, Bill continued his career with a smaller agency in New Jersey and then a major metropolitan Florida agency, and is now in his fourth decade of service as a Police Officer.

“Jersey Bill” currently lives and works in the Tampa Bay area of west-central Florida, and will certainly lean in when sharing his knowledge and passion for Motorsports as a member of the Burning Rubber Radio team.
