K-Tek Booms Capture NASCAR

News Image
Sound Mixer Mike McQueen has selected K-Tek boom poles for his coverage of the NASCAR road races.

"We started in Dover and from there it went all over the country," he explains. "During the week we would visit the race team shop, follow the driver to some personal and team events. Then we'd head to the next track, sometimes on either the teams or driver's jet. We attended races at Dover, Pocono, Michigan, Sonoma, Kentucky, Daytona, and finished our coverage going to New Hampshire. With most of the race shops around Charlotte, NC, we found ourselves in that area quite a bit too."
Mr McQueen has used K-Tek since he started in the business. "My first boom ever was a K-Tek, one of the aluminum ones," he says. "I liked their design so when it came to upgrading I picked up two Klassic Boom Poles (152CC and 102CC). These five-section poles are lightweight, thoughtfully designed, and sturdy. The fact that I can go from the shortest range of 1' 4" to the full extension of nearly 21' is a plus.
"I don't have to put one down and pick up and set up another. The ease and speed at which I could extend the booms on the NASCAR project made my job a lot easier when it was GO time."
