ELB racing not so elb?
ELB racing has replaced the vintage 1992 Ford F-150 tow vehicle with a 2008 of the same make and model. The new tow vehicle is an XLT 4x4 and more importantly, features the 5.4 liter engine with gobs of torque. The old truck struggled to pull the race car and trailer over the mountains near Summit Point WV. The ELB crew will have no problem pulling their rig anywhere on the east coast with the newest addition to the ELB stable. And, given the new tow vehicles crew cab, they’ll have no problem bringing a full crew along.
Speaking of vintage, check out this photo of the original ELB race car. Kermit Burroughs dug this drag racer photo out during the latest Mid-Atlantic blizzard.
