World Rallycross Championship Is Going All Electric

Electric vehicles are growing in popularity and World Rallycross is the next organization to make the switch. But should they? Bangshift reports that World Rallycross Championship is going full-electric by 2020. That means all the noise aka all the excitement will be gone. Would you be interested in watching a race with just the whirring of the battery instead of the rev of engines?

We feature one of the best in chrome this week – Advanced Plating in Nashville, TN. We’ll talk to owner Steve Tracy about the many aspects of their business; from chrome to gold, from cars parts to musical instruments. That’s right, part of the business is plating guitar components, 2.5 million pieces a year!

The 60,000 sq.ft. building is like a giant chemistry experiment with over 160,000 auto parts coming through the doors. Steve will tell us some of the more unusual items they’ve been asked to plate, plus how he and his company survived the 2010 Nashville flood. It’s a great story and maybe Steve will put Gannon to work?
