Nashville Roundup

Well the trip to Nashville was a pretty good one. Both cars, the #26 2XL Dodge and the #96 Dodge made it into the show. Brian stepped over to the #96 for this race showing his maturity knowing that the team needed to get the car into the owners points since Dennis Setzer was faster with the 26 in practice. Well in true Brian fashion he went out in the #96 car and out qualified Dennis by running a 30.048 to Dennis' 30.063! Way to go Brian, when you put a fire under him he gets rolling!
Dennis ran the entire race, Brian came in with handling issues on the car and sat on the pit box for Dennis the rest of the race. Dennis finished the #26 in 20th place and brought the car within 5 spots of the locked in top 30 in owners points.
On some other news for the race, Nashville was the debut venue for the 2XL, Slednecks, Nitro Circus vending trailer. I would say that the headphones were a hit and the fans loved the Nitro Circus and Slednecks videos that were playing all day. The most common fan question of the day? "Do you all know Hubert?". It seems that Hubert - Americas favorite redneck - from Nitro Circus grew up not far from the venue and we met quite a few of his neighbors, friends and relatives.
All in all the race was a success for the team and we look forward to another great weekend at Phoenix!
See you all there!

Bob, Dennis and Brian talk shop while Brad (Brians younger brother) tries to get some pointers haha!

Rob wonders why he has been holding this tire all day for Bob

Dennis tells Bob that he needs his hat on or he has to find a comb......Brad and Brian keep quiet.....
