Those are some beautiful trucks. Really interested in seeing them roll down the tracks.

Thanks Vitamin K,

It should be a fun race to see!
I hope the kids at the Mid America race will enjoy seeing some bigs rigs run & enjoy the showing of semi trucks.

Like Sporty.. I have no idea on how they will run or not.. so will just have to see on the 24th.

If anything I hope the Big Rigs inspire the kids & adults to build some sometime..
Theres alot more to building them but there fun to build then watch roll down a track.

whodathunkit,

These trucks look good in your photos, but they are even better in person! That includes your Sonic Blue Drag Racing Rig. :bigups:

I look forward to watching them race.

Thanks' Randy!

I just got home from work..
So I probably already missed out on seeing the big rig races on the MA-video links.

Do you have any updates that you could pass along on the big rigs Randy?

Would have been nice to have tuned in to see the race and all the semi-trucks...
But that's how it's goes when work pulls you away from seeing all the fun happen.
Maybe the MA crew will share some highlight photos of the semi trucks on the MA links
after all the racing is done :idk:

Really wanted to see Sporty's trucks run as well (hope he did well with his rigs!). ;)

A bit of delay to switch tracks. Concerned about the width of the rigs with the stop section dividers.

It was cool, but a bit scary to watch these big rigs barreling down the track.

That was a cool race, I was the one transporting them back, scared me on that first run and I almost lost one that tried to fly off the back of the stop section. Great job guys!!!!
