So… Last Sunday was Easter, which meant that the 35th annual Creston Rod Run was happening. This was my first time going to this particular event, and unfortunately the Nebraska State Patrol felt the need to employ about 20+ officers to follow us from town to town in about 15 cop cars as well as an Airplane and Helicopter. It was EXTREMELY overdone on their part. I have written the Nebraska State Patrol an e-mail on Monday asking questions in regards to the amount of tax payer dollars spent on Easter for the event vs the amount of revenue gained by the tickets issued (which as far as I know at this point is 1 ticket for a burnout, 1 for speeding and 2 for no front plate). It is now creeping into Thursday and I still haven’t gotten a response, nor do I expect to.
Even though there were no burnouts as I was expecting from previous years, it was still a great car show and opportunity to meet some new people. I have pics up in the gallery which can be found here: http://www.potenzamotorsports.com/photos/v/RodRun2011/
