UPDATE! UPDATE! Due to time restrictions, We will be limiting the number of trucks to 25 per class. So to make sure you can pull, let me know ASAP if you want on the list and leave a number I can call you at to confirm your spot on the list. With the large payouts, I think it will fill up quick. If there are any open... slots on the day of the pull, then its first come first serve.
