Rough truck held

| July 22, 2013

COSHOCTON – The annual rough truck contest, sponsored by the Three Rivers Fire District and the Coshocton County Agricultural Society was held July 20 at the fairgrounds.

While the threat of rain reduced the number of overall drivers for the contest, the quality of vehicles, crowd enthusiasm and thrills remained including one Chevrolet truck that refused to quit despite attempting to run the gauntlet of speed bumps, hills, turns and jumps with one tire splayed out like an athlete with a broken limb.

Adam Blankenhorn from Mount Vernon won the event and also eked out a victory with the longest jump at the contest, giving him a clean sweep for the evening. Jason Daniels of Lima took second place and also drove the farthest for the event. Travis Stevens was third.

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.
