Getting excited about the worlds largest one day cruise is never hard to do especially when it’s in your own backyard, The Motor City. Now add in the fact my hot rod was on display as one of the many attractions at this year’s festival of cars and car culture. Last year I was there with the VIPsports Top Alcohol Funny Car team and this year Toyo Tires asked us to represent them to the crowds of adorning gear heads. On behalf of both Toyo Tires and Leadfoot Motorsports the fans were absolutely awesome.

In spite of persistent rain much of the day, people came out to the event and stopped by our display non-stop. One of my favorite things to do besides wheeling some fuel burning beast down the 1320 is interacting with the fans as well as answering questions pertaining to our many marketing partners. In this case Toyo Tres was the star of the show for obvious reasons, however our numerous other partners received ample support as well. If you have never been to the dream cruise I would advise you to make it one of those things you do to complete you fan resume. This event is one that can’t be summed into words. For one the sheer magnitude of the event itself and the million plus people that attend make it a very special place to be. Detroit definitely earned its right to use the “Motor City” moniker this weekend. Even Rob from Toyo Tires could not believe so many people turned out to the event knowing hard rain was in the forecast for much of the day.

In addition to representing Toyo Tres, we were also pleased to have the addition of Jamie who is one of the lovely ladies competing for the title of Ms. Von Dutch / Leadfoot Motorsports. Jamie did an excellent job in representing herself, Leadfoot, Toyo and all of our other marketing partners. I think she has a bright future in modeling as well as anything else she decides to be involved with. Now that the show is over our next focus is to get the purple rocket ready for the biggest race on the IHRA’s schedule. The IHRA World Finals in Norwalk, OH at Norwalk Raceway Park will be our next event. The event begins this week August 24 – August 27th. Wish us luck as we look to capture our first Ironman! Until next time… live fast, drive hard!!!
