I thought I'd share some pictures of Kenny's Truck. He was a block from our office, I was busy and by the time I got there he was packed up and ready to leave, I welcomed him to Fargo and shook his hand.

Note the straps around the CB antennae, and the cool lights on the lower skirt of the trailer.
enjoy.. more to follow I'm going racing tonight.

Thanks for posting the pics,
wonder how he secured the antenna brackets to the coach.

Cool setup. Is he headed to Brainerd for the Nationals? Funny coach layout, no side door. I think those clearance lights look like the bad kind that have the rubber grommet like the ones I had to replace?

Kenny Wallace and Kenny Schrader were in town (West Fargo, ND) Racing USMTS Modifieds on Dirt!

Tonight Tony Stewart and Donny Schatz roll in with "all Star Sprints" show.

Last night I helped a friend in the pits with his super stock, how they lure me back to that dark side of my past I don't know. Must resist that racing itch..

I had some time so I walked the pits and took some pictures of the Truck conversions, enjoy.... I wish there was a way to draw those guys to a forum, they must know all about the nuances of the Truck Conversions as they live, roll, and pull to the max their T/C's 100's of nights and tens of thousands of miles per year.

Note the one picture of Kennys truck shows that anttea bracket just bolted down, these guys are not very facny, just faasstt!

enjoy

Great pictures. Ya, I hear you about getting more members here. But those guys don't worry about their trucks. It's the racing, hahahahaha. You've got to print out a bunch of fliers that say, "www.truckconversion.net" and drop one on each t/c's wiper. Oh no, you'd get very tired climbing up on them all. And might get a wrench across the neck.

Thanks for all the pics and thread.

Noticed a Cascadia with a visor. Does anyone know where they are sold?
