Hauler Driver and Cylinder Head Maintenance

A few of us used to stop there when traveling from one track to the next one on the NHRA tour. They had plenty of parking for the haulers. I read today that they decided to retire and sold the property to some investors and they are going to open it up to sell Mexican food.
If you are on 40 going west, then you will go through Amarillo TX. So you might want to stop off at the Big Texan Steak Ranch to eat. They serve breakfast also. That is another place a lot of the drivers of race car haulers stop and stay in their hotel on the way to the west coast. Maybe you will want to do the 72oz challenge.
Funny your talk about the roads. Yes I noticed. Missouri and Arkansas aren't good... Nor Illinois.... But coming into St Louis city and driving through it I'll remember foreverClutch, how long are you stateside? If you'll be in the I-40 corridor area of Texas/Colorado at the end of September/start of October, you might be able to catch Rocky Mountain Race Week traffic.
We did Rocky Mountain Race Week on the OLD section of Route66 between Tulsa and Oklahoma City the last 2 years. You wont be able to take an RV on it due to weight zoned bridges, but you can stop near and walk or bike it from NEW Route66.
Just a warning: Many roads in Arkansas and Oklahoma are...lets just say that some are un-deserving of being called interstates or highways.
Be sure to stop and look at the big transformers in Stillwater Oklahoma, about 20 miles north of old 66 west of Tulsa.
