From what we’ve seen and heard, the Karnataka 1000 or the ‘K 1000’ rally has always been a set of fast and exciting stages, even after the transition from asphalt to gravel. The 44th edition of the K 1000 rally was no less, with the drivers being able to push their limits on the faster stretches of dirt, but the mid forest stages were the proving grounds for the driver and co-driver duo. Chetan Shivram held his guard against Fabid Ahmed and Gaurav Gill in Bangalore but the Popular Rally was another story. Gill got off to a good start on day one in Kochi, winning two stages and earning a third place in one stage. Chetan, who had won the previous round in Coimbatore, was getting closer and closer after each stage. He finished on podium in stage two and three, with Bikku Babu taking one stage win on day one.

1st & Ten with REGGIE GILLIAM

Reggie Gilliam has turned into one of the best underdog stories on the Bills roster this year. The Toledo product entered training camp as a fullback with a long-shot to make the team; he finished training camp as a tight end who, in fact, had made the opening day roster. Gilliam’s lined up in a lot of different roles throughout his playing career — running back, fullback, tight end, standout special teamer — and he’s looking to continue developing as a swiss-army of sorts with the Bills. Bills Digest recently caught up with Gilliam for his thoughts on transitioning to the NFL and his big touchdown catch against the Miami Dolphins in Week 2.
