A REAL NEWSMAKER -- DODGE CEO RALPH GILLES

LISTEN ALERT: I'm scheduled for a live guest shot on Fox Sports Radio this Saturday at about 1 p.m. EDT with hosts Andy Furman and Sean Farnham. They want to discuss drag racing safety given the recent fatalities. You can hear this on 300 Fox Sports Radio affiliate stations, markets including Los Angeles, Dallas, Seattle, Detroit, Atlanta, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Miami, Phoenix, Washington D.C., Pittsburgh and San Francisco. FSR can also be heard on XM Channel 142 and online at www.FoxSports.com .




In a major industry Newsmaker interview, Dodge President and CEO Ralph Gilles was my Newsmaker of the Week guest on Wednesday night's The Race Reporters on PowerUpChannel.com. We got Ralph's views on NASCAR, the auto business, as well as NHRA. Mark Armijo and Jim Pedley joined me for the roundtable and then Larry Edsall was on to help interview Gilles -- who told us Dodge and Ford shared wind tunnel data in developing their new Nationwide series cars!
