We had customers in from Alabama a few years back and instead of the usual dinner at a nice restaurant, I suggested this. Between all the wife beater t-shirts, mohawks and shirts saying "show me your tits", these guys all turned to me and said "Don't you ever call us red necks again!" LOL Years later I still hear about it. But they had a blast.

Yeah, thank god my wife loves and supports me , she's always telling me stories of her encounters in the stands ( usually not good ones either). And the pit area isn't any better ... A lot of language I could do without..

I maybe switching gears a little for the Thurs show at Davisburg. Not sure if he will have enough fwd stock cars or not , so I may just bring the 94 explorer for tough truck contest instead. I will still bring my reg off-road fwd car as well . either way I will have 2 vechiles of some sort.
