Herbie has been getting some love.
Prep is under way for the Mint 400.
Sand. Sanding. Oo more sanding. It's a fiberglass body I don't want to sandbinto the fiberglass.
So hard to sand off these cool paintings.

cool story and rig(s) my kid rolled mine when he was 12 in our back yard. My buddy might still have it. Probably free to a racer wanting to build if it is still in his pasture .

Holy Toledo.
Another week is gone. Still moving forward.
So close.
Nothing worse then being told they will help you to be lied to. Put on the back burner. Or just blow you off.
Loading up in one week. Still waiting
I do thank all my sponsors that support me through all my racing.
