052 – Power and Speed – Jim Beattie Jr. from ATI Performance Products

Mike, Tom, Tad, and Crunch all in studio tonight. Tonight we have Jim Beattie Jr. from ATI Performance Products.  Listeners have said more tech talk.  You got it.

Mike, Tom, Crunch and Tad in studio tonight.  No guest, but schedule starts next week.  Watch for mixlr events and our Facebook for Details.  Well, you will have weeks like this.  It’s crappy out, snow is melting and making that snowy mess that is so familiar to people in snow prone regions of the country.  Translation, not much of anything going on… except for Hollywood Tom. Tom was invited to a distributor ssponsored event in the Dominican Republic to talk to customers about the products and how to better sell them in the motorsports market place.  Must be nice to be…
