Kudos and Credits
Thats the updated list and all for now gang. Thanks to all who came out
to spend the weekend with us and enjoy the festivities.
I would like to thank the crew, and their wives, at SGS Performance for once
again allowing us to have another show with them. Their continued dedication
to making the show keep flowing is what makes our experiences with them so
enjoyable. They are a great shop, owned and operated by first class people and
their ladies and we appreciate all their efforts.
I want to also thank ALL of those people who participated and also those who
donated to make this weekends charity event a huge success. With the number of
competitors, 25, and the other donations, which included a generous one from
SGS, we made a total of $500. Those of us who knew Curt really appreciate all
the effort to make this a success.
Thanks to the weekends Chef's, Chef Keith and Sous Chef Neal on Saturday and
on Sunday Chef Keith and the pair of Sous Chef's Chef Larry & Neal for their
wheeling of our grill to feed the masses. We also need to say thanks to those
who brought stuff along to make lunch even better. I know I really liked the
chili on Saturday and wished I could have gotten more than the small dish I
had, it was awesome.
I was really amazed at how many trucks we had on hand for both days shows. It
was nice to see the people out and enjoying the nice weekend with us. I know
we did not get a count but we had the upper field full both days with some of
the East's nicest looking diesels. We appreciate the nice turn outs and know
our shows would not be anything without the great people who come and enjoy them.
And again, thanks to all of you who picked up your trash before leaving, and
thanks to everyone for driving carefully on the grassy knoll! Your efforts are
noticed every time!
Last but not least as I am wore out and going to call it an evening. Last
night I poured though piles and piles of my dyno sheets trying to come up with
the best idea for a number to dial my truck for this shootout. Curt had done
ALOT of work on my fuel system and the previous turbo to help me get my truck
sorted out and trying to win this meant alot to me. Many calls were made back
and forth as he was as interested in how the truck was responding to the
changes we made as he did care alot about his work. To say I was very happy
when I realized I did win it was an understatement and it meant alot to me.
Curt is missed by many of the Mason-Dixon TDC members, local pullers, friends
and family, he is gone but will not be forgotten.
