Everything is marked down. It's all gotta go. Shirts will likely be discontinued, so once they're gone, they're gone. Hats I have some other designs I would consider offering, but inventories must be cut.

2002 Saline, MI Dennis Boeresen Greenline Express John Deere Pro Stock. I have no interest in getting into the downfall of Boeresen Farms, it's not the point. This was the first time I saw Dennis in competition myself and they were a threat from the get go. They had strong tractors and it shows here.
I reckon this'll be the end of the #gordywana thing. Long live the #midwestwinternationals. Here's what I saw on Friday night and Saturday. If I didn't shoot it, I was late on Friday getting there and on Saturday If I didn't shoot it, I was on mic talking about you instead. Some of these images are deliberately blurry. It's not an edit, I was shooting with a tilt-shift lens because I don't know if anyone ever has of a pull before I and I wanted to find out. It's totally optics. I'll push the boundaries of pulling photography more than anyone else mainly because I don't make anything off of it and I have ADD! I can't wait to try one outdoors this summer whenever I can.

1991 NFMS Jerry Thurston IH 686 5500 SS. I n honor of what should be NFMS week, we present Jerry Thurston making a trip through Freedom Hall. Yes, it does look a little familiar. Jerry got it from Tom Dickerson. These days, you'll find Jerry grandson Bryan at tracks around the midwest shooting photos.
here's the best of what I saw at the Oklahoma Winternationals. I know I didn't get everyone, particularly on the north track. I'm sorry for that. I also did some experimenting with some things... Well, you'll see. I have to try out some some stuff now and then.

Where the podcast and the Clip Of The Day collide!!!
On this one we look at Imlay City, MI NTPA Super Stock tractors circa 2004 and the day it all changed... again.
1995 Imlay City, MI Nolan Hall The Wolverine Haller Ford Ranger. Nolan was a force particularly on the Michigan circuit. He began with modifieds and then 4 different TWDs. This, the 3rd would be responsible for 2 of his 4 RN2 TWD titles including the 1995 season. Nolan was one of the few and quite possibly the first modern, non-funnycar-style TWD to have a rollcage.
1998 NFMS Paul Waesch Wipe Out IH 966 Pro Stock. The Waesch family ran this PS for 11 years and collected 1 RN2 title in the process. It was sold, but Wipe Out Enterprises is still going strong today building everything from parts to turn key pulling tractors. Paul is still out there, too. I've seen him pulling a Farmall H at various antique events.
2004 DeKalb Super Pull Columbus, OH Ed Goertner Ford 6000. This was an earlier version of what Ed would go on to build for the NA/SS class which I have shown you previously here on COTD. He's still a force on the Central Ohio and Tri-State circuits. This tractor is still around. JP Dunn had it for sale as of this posting.
