It is always good to welcome back the man who has the finger on the pulse on all things drag racing in the state of Michigan, here is our friend Todd (Sr.) Dunham from The Drag Racers of Michigan Facebook page. The DRoM is really the one of the first stops that you want to go to in order to get the full picture of what action is going on daily.

Today we had with us Bill Alexander of the MSADRA on "The 5:15 Show".
At the pre-production meeting for the show, we had to explain to staff how you could race a snowmobile at a drag strip in the summer. After watching some videos on the MSADRA Facebook page, staff came up with even more questions. Thankfully, Mr. Alexander answered not only our questions, but he took time to answer questions that were coming from our listeners. Mr. Alexander deftly informed all how the association started, talked about what it takes to get started, the differences between drag racing a car vs. a snowmobile, all of the different classes in the sport, what kind of safety equipment is needed, the membership of the MSADRA and how it is run, how the members interact, the cost of snowmobile drag racing, Mr. Alexander's history in the sport and so much more.
Editors Note: I just wanted to say that we were very impressed by not only Mr. Alexander, but by the reputation that the MSADRA as developed. Mr. Alexander did not disappoint on air and is a fine credit to the sport of snowmobile drag racing. We held Bill way over our time slot, and he graciously stayed to answer a mountain of questions. No wonder he and the MSADRA gets high recommendations from track owners. We will have Mr. Alexander back with us 8/17/20. We are looking forward to it.-John

It's always fun to have Karri Anne on with us on "The 5:15 Show" and this, her third time with us, was no exception.
On this show, we had Karri Anne tell us the whole story on how she won the "Pinks All Out" driving an AMC Pacer.
From getting the ride, to entering, to going round by round, to becoming a coast-to-coast story after winning it all!
There is even a humorous "denial of the powder room" by the show's producers back story too!

Tonight our guest is BOB McSWAIN from Godfather Racing. Mr.McSwain has done everything from engine testing on the street to racing in dozens and dozens of drag strips around America. Not only does Mr. McSwain race, but he has direct family members racing in all different levels under the Godfather name too. His place in Fraser, Michigan is one of the few east side shops that still pumps out high performance cars in fine order. BTW, Mopar is spoken fluently there...
