Default Transporters

Since some, if not all, the Schumacher teams were returning to Brownsburg after the race on Sunday night it was interesting to see how they get all the transporters out from those tight pit areas. It was a show by itself. Moving those freight trains on wheels is quite a project.

I've always told my truck driving buddies that the real show is seeing these guys park them together (within a foot in many cases) and get them pulled out of a pit spot.

I have all the respect in the world for the guys and gals who drive these rigs.

That is a great picture. I love it. He will always be "The Man" in Pro Stock. If I send you an email can you send me the jpeg so I can make a copy for my Bob Glidden wall in my shop? Brian

pm sent.

btw, my pics are available to anybody free. If you see one pop up, just pm me your email and I'll send the original. The only problem is that I have a cheap, mini photo scanner at the moment, and it makes streaks (sort of a built-in watermark for me I guess), so they are not perfect unless you reduce them a bit. Plus, all mine were taken before the digital era, so all were burned in by God and not by a chip.

Some day, when I can get a quality scanner, I'll send better and bigger pics. Not sure when that will be as I'm not educated on the best photo scanners/printers.

The person walking toward the rig is NOT Rusty.....At that time, Bob had an older man working with him as crew that sported a burr hair cut....I think that is the guy
