Kansas TDC this Friday!
« on: June 14, 2017, 10:14:00 PM »
Tomorrow I deliver equipment (my bid tractor!) for the Kansas TDC and I got an early Father's Day present, a new Nikon DLSR with a nice zoom lens!  It's looking good so far already!

I'll be competing in 5 axle and not in Flatbed against this guy:



Will update with pics, anyone want video clips too?

Congrats on the camera, hope it works out for you! I would be happy with pictures but if you want to shoot some video I'd also be happy to check it out too. Good luck at the competition.

Thanks! I'm gonna need all the good juju, turns out one of my co-competitors is a multi time state champion and one time National Grand Champion.

Awesome stuff Roogie! Your shots came out really sharp, great job. Just out of curiosity, why was everybody pulling trailers for other companies?

The drivers probably weren't driving their own company's tractor either. You're not allowed to use your own company's equipment when competing.

Spot on Greg. Also notice any tractor with fender or hood mounted spot mirrors have them covered up so as not to give one driver an advantage over another.
