The fifth annual “FOX Sports SEMA Special” TV show will premiere on FOX Sports 2 (FS2), Thursday, March 18, at 5:00 p.m. (PDT).
Produced by the High Impact Television (HIT) crew, the program includes a visit to the SEMA headquarters in Diamond Bar, California, where host Tore Dietrich went behind the scenes to discover what the SEMA Garage is all about. Dietreich talked to SEMA Vice President of OEM & Product Development Mike Spagnola about the different SEMA Garage services available to SEMA members, and to SEMA Board Member/4 Wheel Parts Senior Marketing Manager Kathryn Reinhardt about her company’s use of the SEMA Garage to develop products.
“We appreciate the opportunity to share with the FOX Sports viewers how the industry develops the great products that allow them to improve and enhance their cars, trucks and SUVs,” said Spagnola. “The High Impact crew did great job highlighting the tools and resources that are available at the SEMA Garage, and how manufacturers use the tools to develop products more efficiently, effectively and at a lower cost.”
“We have a great show for FOX Sports viewers, as we visited SEMA‘s SoCal headquarters and testing facility to see what’s new in the automotive aftermarket," said Dietrich, president of HIT. “We are proud to be able to give the viewer a look at some awesome companies, brands, products, vehicles and trends.”
