Just put the GTTalk banner on top of the hauler, Wait!  even better

 

The blimp sign to say , Hi, to all my friends at GTTalk  >>> now that would be pretty cool  :worshippy1: :bigrofl:

 

Heck, why don't I just sponsor a team, and plaster GTtalk.com all over the car? Would be good advertisement! :driving_tbucket:

You don't have to go that extra expense, Troy. Just slap a bumper sticker on the pace car.

If I had one, believe me, I'd try it!

We could go down in history as the only tractor forum ever banished from NASCAR

Troy, some of those guys might be GT fans themselves. Do a little recruiting, see if you can get them to join up!

Well, tomorrow morning I leave. I have to be in Reading to meet the other guys at 7:30 am, drive as a group to Allentown, then take the flight to Daytona. I wasn't supposed to go for another two weeks, but it seems that Goodyear was overwhelmed with local guys down there wanting to help, so they rescheduled us fly in guys for this weekend and next. A little disappointed, but still happy to be able to work it, and take on the adventure. I have the camera charged and ready to go. No promises, but I'll take as many as I can, as time allows.

 

Bill (Tennblue59), I'll try and give you a call as soon as I know what our schedule will be like, and hopefully be able to meet up with you and have some coffee or dinner. Looking forward to meeting you, and sitting down to talk about whatever topic comes up! Thanks again for the invitation.

 

Talk to you guys when I get back on Monday afternoon!

There is a big craze to put nitrogen in motorcycle tires now-a-days.

Maybe on a racing bike, but I don't think it is a big deal on my touring bikes...I don't ride that agressive.

My Nephew runs Nitrogen in the tires on his rock crawler? Funny as big as those tires are. I can't imagine why he wold be concerned with the tire growing due to heat?

A Small nitrogen bottle takes up a lot less room than an air compressor and will fill many tires. I work with a guy who does formula V, autocross and shifter cart racing. That is what he used to save room in the trailer

I think it's just cool you get to work on some aspect of NASCAR cars, let alone going to Daytona....which is one of my dreams to go watch the 500. Cool gig you got going.

I just turned down free tickets to Bristol in March, did it, done it, I really need money for new tires instead.....for 4 vehicles :wallbanging:

I guess no one else caught that, so have I. Great Grand Dad used it in the first pneumatic tires he had. :smilewink:
