OK here are some pics I took on my little camera. All the video is locked in my DV tape Cam that'* dead until Bill sends me my charger. Shadd did borrow the tape and copied it onto a cassette for his family. We all watched it last night.
He has an awesome family with 6 bro'* and sis'*.
The day before the event we had to get everything ready. Shadd was a bundle of nerves. I kept feeding him Monsters just to calm his worries, He had a nightmare that only 3 trucks were going to show because he had invested a pile of cash in the event.
The track was level and packed with clay.
We went to pick up the bleachers for the spectators at the local high school. The car trailer he had prearranged was gone
so he managed to contact a friend and borrowed a hauler.......with a Wing on the hood
It'* not a big town so we aroused some suspision from the local Sherrif.
We told him it was a Bonne meet so he left us alone.
After that was done, it was getting late so we headed back to Shadd'* garage to do some mods to CueHaul.
There'* a Turbo in there.
I told you his garage was huge.....
Bill, you would be in heaven in this place. You HAVE to visit.
Makes Rod'* intake look small. :P
Makes my exhaust look small.
We got it all done before midnight.
An engineous homemade device.
Digital footage readout.
Setting up the announcers booth.
Takin home the trophy.
Then we had to clean up and bring everything back.
It was a full day.
We watched Transformers with the family on the projection TV.
It was definitely a highlight of my vacation.
Thanks to the Shadd Forrester and especially Shadds mom and dad Kennon and Paula for all the hospitality.
