We were one of the lucky Teams, all of our drivers had rain tires but it was very stressful there for awhile juggling things around to make sure everyone was covered. We had people offer a few of our drivers $2,000 for their set. We had more overnighted and sold them for $212 plus freight. As Jimmy said we all tried to help anyone we could by giving away used sets to drivers that were in desperate need.

Both as a promoter and a Team owner it is a no win situation, if you order enough rains for all your drivers then it doesn’t rain you are stuck with them usually for the year but if you don’t have them then it is a nightmare.

We are so lucky to have such a great group of people under our tent that anyone of them were willing to help the other out in a second.
