Couple more pictures from the Ford photgrapher. The picture up against the Darlington written on the wall has become my new screensaver.

 

Dad and I enjoying the time before Sunday's race.

Just watched the 2016 Southern 500 this past weekend and all of the great memories of last year came flooding back. This was really a once in a lifetime experience that I will really cherish doing with my Dad. I emailed the Ford marketing representative that treated us like VIPs last year and just thanked her again for this great experience. She stated Chevy had the pace lap this year. Did anyone see what they had?

Your right I had not. I have put a lot of miles on the trailer since buying it last year. I have trailered to Darlington,SC, Dickson, TN, St. Augustine, FL, and Alton, IL. May go to Myrtle Beach, SC for the MCA show on 9/30. Still debating about that. Planning to go to the MCA Club show in Little Rock, AR on 09/17.

 

Just bought new tires for the trailer this week and decided that I should probably get new ones for the truck. I really hate Goodyear tires. 32K on the truck in a little over 1 year and these Wranglers are down to the wear ribs. Have never been happy with Goodyear tires.

Goodyears wear out really fast, mostly because they're soft compound tires. I know I leave tire prints on my driveway just turning into it. Every set of Goodyears I've ever had have never lasted anywhere close to their claimed mileage life.

 

Nice rig, though! ::thumb::
