Melanie Troxel was the Newsmaker guest on Wednesday night's The Race Reporters on A winner in both Top Fuel and Funny Car, Melanie is on a partial schedule this year in the In-N-Out Burger Dodge Charger and will be on the track this weekend at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. John Sturbin and Bobby Bennett joined me for the roundtable and then Peter De Lorenzo and I talked about the state of automakers' involvement in motorsports.

What does Melanie think about the four-wide controversy? Having the resources to compete against John Force and Don Schumacher? What team bonding outing has she scheduled in Las Vegas?
