V 12 powered Massey Ferguson

trials riding in a scapyard

trials rider Adam Raga and hard enduro star Alfredo Gomez found themselves some trials riding gold in the scrapyard - perfect terrain for an all-out offroad adventure.

But not every dirt track is open to the public, so when Adam and Alfredo’s semi-legal freeride came to an abrupt halt, they had to make a break for freedom through the scrapyard and to the outskirts of town.

Ever wonder what it was like to be John Force's crew chief during the past 30 years? Austin Coil's story is now in an online article

A dealership in Leon Valley Texas had 180 wheels from 39 Chevy Silverados and 6 Camaros stolen, all the vehicles were left on blocks. This is the 3rd Texas dealership to get hit. Wouldn't you think the Chevy Dealership Association would spread the warning?

For some reason the dealership decides to call that 180 wheels to be a value of $300,000...

5 guys took 5 hours, between midnight and 5 am to pull all those wheels, and put them in a 24 foot moving van.

They hit Brown Chevrolet in Devine and Womack Chevrolet in Castroville last year.

Skip to the 45 second mark

regarding trucking, Texas hits truckers on maintenance violations, and Indiana is focused on speeding tickets. Figures.

With speeding accounting for nearly half of all moving-type infractions marked on inspection reports in 2013, Indiana ranks first in the nation for those violations.

Nearly 80 percent of Indiana’s inspections are taking place on the roadside, not at weigh stations, a rate that has been fairly stable since 2011. 20% more than the national average

Indiana’s priorities are weighted heavily toward reducing truck crashes. That’s an understandable goal, given Indiana ranked second in crashes per lane-mile of highway system. It's also lucrative for the state due to the fines.

Oregon, with the same goal, puts more effort behind hours violations as an influencer of what it sees as dangerous driver behavior. Less interested in money, and more on safety and drivers working conditions.

Virginia leads all states in brake inspections and violations

Maryland is the toughest on level 1 (everything possible) inspections
