My new "Mule" courtesy of Dick Fry and son Jeff. Awesome. I had to keep hiding the keys from Randy who liked to take off for parts unknown. I didn't put polka dots on it, but decorated it just a little later.
Under the big cover in the pit parking outside the entrance to the track was a non-stop story evolving as the two days went on. Of course many like the Kittle Hauler and Krew were there on Thursday to get ready for the big show. A lot of fun began before the work and racing.
Little room between the haulers made for pass thru paths to the back parking.
