An update of what's been going on at ASR and what's coming up!
March and April
Like all of you, we have not been going to car shows much for the last few weeks. Rex and Annette were at the GoodGuys 10th LMC Truck Spring Lone Star Nationals at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, TX on March 13th when the rains came. By noon the show had to be called off for the day because one of the two ways to get into and out of the track’s infield was flooded. That evening the call came in that the mayor of Fort Worth had shut the show down due to the COVID-19 virus. So on Saturday Rex and Annette went back to the show and with the help of some family and friends loaded up the trailer and headed back to Peabody.
Since then Rex, Annette, Moose and Travis have been busy working! We’re working on the website, getting as many new products on the site as fast as possible. You should see a bunch of new products from Vintage Air, Inc, Lokar, FITech, and more on the site now with much more coming soon! If there's anything that you need that's not on the site yet you can call 620-792-2836 for one on one help!
