Rockin’ and rollin’ at Coshocton County Fairgrounds rough truck

| October 4, 2012

The rough truck contest at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds always brings out the best and the “beasts” from Coshocton and surrounding towns, villages and rural hamlets. In this case, Fresno, Ohio.

“Sharkie” is the name of this beast – one of the many entries in the popular contest held Wednesday night, Oct. 3 at the fairgrounds. It seems the course designers throw in a few more twists and turns each year and 2012 was no exception, with several vehicles towed off the track despite heroic efforts from the drivers. One Warsaw area man actually had his truck go end over end with firefighters and EMS personnel on the scene quickly. One area firefighter, Michael Freetage, was injured during the recovery. The Beacon was unable to confirm if there were any injuries to the driver of the truck.

“Sharkie” was driven by Capt. Nate Dahlmans of Fresno. Spelling could be wrong.

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.
