    When Furniture Row Racing was still active and based here in Denver, the truck would leave Daytona on Sunday night and unload in Denver on Tuesday morning and leave Denver on Weds. morning.

    Only applies to four wheelers in MT, trucks are supposed to only do 70, those other states plus Wyo, Ut. and Tx it applies to everyone

    I'd like to nominate Borden Dairy drivers for that award. They've never been anything less than top-notch in all my experiences with them. And like bull haulers, they're not afraid to lay the hammer down when it's time to mooo-ve.

    Back when I first started, the same thing happened with me on I-90 as I was rolling eastbound across the top of Indiana.

    So I went online and checked the race schedule and the teams were only going from Chicagoland to Michigan International - a whole 230 miles for their week.

    They typically have to go home, swap out equipment and then head to the next track
