Another great truck fest

2933 55
I just wanted to say Thanks to all of you cummins forum members that stopped by the booth today and Saturday to say hello and shoot the sh&t.

I was great seeing some new faces from here and seeing all my friends from previous events again also.

Truck Fest was a huge success again this year and a great time was had by all. A big thanks goes out to Dan and Kevin From Valair clutch for driving all the way up here to spend the weekend with all of us and for getting the Texas Diesel Funny car over to our booth for the morning:thumbsup

As far as the racing goes it was also a blast. My truck ran a best ever time of 12.86 @ 104 MPH:hyper: I made it to the fourth round of eliminations but fell asleep at the lights and lost but at least it was to a Dodge Dieselguy84 (Eric) ran a personal best time of 14.2 @ 95 mph:beer. Cliff and i raced and again i beat him:CRY: But its getting closer as there was only 1/10th difference but a W is a W. Right Cliff?:thumbsup Adam did great in the pulls in the street stock class at 278 ft. dieselpizzaguy raced for the first time ever and made it to the fourth round also.:thumbsup

If i missed anyone else who was there racing, lets hear from you and your results. we have lots of video and picks that we will post as soon as we get them loaded up.

A big thanks goes out to Banshetroy for all the effort he put into making the forum T-shirts and having them to me on Sunday:beer Also congrats on winning the Raffle for the quadzilla X2box:woot: I will post up the pics of the shirts soon and will be taking orders for a new batch. PM me with your info. shirts cost will be 20.00 each and they are sharp

Hope to see you all again soon and for those who missed it this year mark your calendars for next year.
