The Carey and Coffey Show is a talk show about NASCAR. Mostly. It's hosted by two guys, Matt Carey and Jay Coffey, who happen to love NASCAR. Oh sure….they stray off topic from time to time and dabble in music, sports, their wives, kids, the internet and a host of other things that distract them, but it always (eventually) comes back around to NASCAR. Speaking of NASCAR talk, it's not that typical "nuts-and-bolts" type of NASCAR talk that most of you don't care to hear. You're not going to hear Matt and Jay rattling on about shock packages for the next race or dissecting Goodyear tire selection because really; who cares? Carey and Coffey aren't reporters, they're 30-something year old guys who like NASCAR and are lucky enough talk to thousands of people about it each week.
The show began in the fall In August of 2005 as a regular sports talk show. It became obvious relatively quickly that they didn't know enough about basketball, football, or care enough about hockey to host an all-encompassing sports talk show. They decided to focus the show on Baseball and NASCAR. (Carey and Coffey trivia: the working name of the show was originally balls and tires, that didn't fly with the program director, so they named it Carey and Coffey.) A few short months later, Baseball fell by the wayside and the Carey and Coffey Show started to carve out a real identity.
Capitalizing on the fact that there is no personality based NASCAR talk show on the radio , and that NASCAR is a sport experiencing tremendous growth and expansions, Carey and Coffey formed Carey and Coffey LLC with the goal of distributing the Carey and Coffey Show to as many as people as possible while generating enough revenue to support Jay Coffey's Coors light habit.
