THE BERNSTEINS

Hall of Famer Kenny Bernstein and son Brandon, who drives the Copart Top Fueler in NHRA, were my Newsmaker guests on Wednesday night's The Race Reporters on PowerUpChannel.com. Susan Wade and Dave Rieff joined me.

I have mentioned on my show Valvoline/MTS Dodge Charger Funny Car driver Jack Beckman's campaign, which runs through June 2, to help raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Beckman is a cancer survivor. The link to donate is too long for radio, but here it is:

Please look for my story on Antron Brown in this Friday's Arizona Republic. Antron opens-up about the accident at Firebird International Raceway that resulted in a spectator fatality. You'll be surprised at who has helped Antron get through this difficult time. If you're not in Arizona to buy the paper, look for the story at AZCentral.com.
