Crowd roars for ‘Midnight Rider’

| July 17, 2017


COSHOCTON – The crowd roared as “Midnight Rider” blasted on to the track at the annual Rough Truck competition held at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds on Saturday evening, July 15. The 1936 Chevrolet features a 540 cubic inch engine that boasts 1600 horsepower and hails from Indiana. The truck put the petal to the metal and easily crushed four cars that had been placed on the track for that purpose. The annual event is held by the Three Rivers Fire Department and the Coshocton County Agricultural Society to raise funds. Approximately 40 drivers tested their skills against the newly designed rough truck course.

About the Author ()

I live with my beautiful wife Nancy on a small farm just outside Coshocton. We have been married for thirty two years and have two grown children, Jessica and Jacob. Jessica is married to Aaron Mencer and they are employed with Coshocton City Schools. Jacob is a sophomore at Kent State University. I graduated from River View High School, have a Bachelor’s Degree from North Carolina Wesleyan University and am actively involved with the Roscoe United Methodist Church, serve on several local committees and am a member of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, having served as Past-President. I love reading, especially military thrillers, the Civil War and history in general. My goal is to write a novel. My wife and I are also AdvoCare distributors and encourage anyone wanting to lose weight, gain energy and better health to explore AdvoCare at our website; I love the media field, innovative technology and have worked in newspapers for over 30 years – in fact, my first job was delivering newspapers. The Beacon is a dream made possible by the support of this community and a great team. I hope to continue serving Coshocton County for many years.
