Heck, the video itself, as always from Big Rig Videos’ Chris Fiffie, is worth a stand-alone post in and of itself, an extensive interview with Mike Morgan intercut with on-track ChampTruck racing action and views of the rigs that competed in the attendant Overdrive‘s Pride & Polish event out in Willows, Calif., at the Thunder Hills raceway a couple weeks back now.
Give it a run through above.
I will say it’s been exciting to see Morgan having some success out at the few ChampTruck races so far in this its inaugural season of Class 8 truck racing. As regular readers know, the Mack of Nashville diesel tech is headquartered in my general vicinity, and leading into the first ChampTruck event he wasn’t even sure, given lack of a lot of sponsor money coming into the operation, whether he’d make that second, California event. He’s still looking for that $$ influx to keep his team solvent, but make it he did, placing second overall in the points to follow-up a first-place finish in the initial event.
Here’s wishing him the best as the series continues…
As for Fiffie, we’ve updated Overdrive‘s playlist with a few of his new “Rolling CB interviews” with owner-operators, all of which you can check out below. For more in-depth on the project’s origins, read the story at this link.
