HorsePower Half-Hour






















Horsepower Half-Hour is an innovative and entertaining approach to bringing you automotive news, service tips and new car reviews.  You don’t need to be a car enthusiast, race fan or weekend mechanic to enjoy Horsepower Half-Hour because you’ll find a little bit of everything under the hood!


Triangle-area rock radio veteran, Mark Arsen is your host, his love for cars is evident in the way he presents each new car review on-location with local dealers and gets you helpful automotive service advice from area mechanics.  You never know who’ll turn-up next on the Horsepower Half-Hour as Arsen talks cars with the people who build ‘em, drive ‘em, race ‘em, collect ‘em and more.

You’ll also hear the best automotive features and interviews from the week, produced by News Radio 680 WPTF like “Car Chronicles” and “Racing Today”.
