With the end of David Letterman’s stint on television, we were reminded of this interview from 2008 where friend of Jalopnik Alex Roy appeared on the late night show. Here’s that interview.
David Letterman’s career in TV comes to an end this evening with the conclusion of his run as host of Late Show. But Letterman has humble roots in Indiana, and before he became one of the most successful late night hosts in history, he was just a guy from Indiana that loved racing. Here he is at the Indy 500.

Well lookie here. That's Alex Roy — and he's on David Letterman! And he's looking good.

As for the interview, it's funny, with Roy…
Looks like the writer's strike is really taking a toll. I mean, Alex Roy is going to be on Letterman? Sure, Alex will probably be talking about his book (The Driver which I just picked up — the first chapter rocks... that's all I can honestly say at this point in time) and his flabbergastingly ballsy high-speed, …
