New Tag. Peugeot on a Pole.
Just up/down the road is Ground Zero for Keaton's Chicken. This is the original. Used to go there back in the early 60's. The original owners (two brothers) retired. The brother's neice ( I believe) reopened it about 10 years ago.

That sucks.... My tire I ordered will not be here until the 7th... But on the bright side my brake pads will be here today. I like Motorcyclesuperstore.com but they are slow to deliver... Unless you upgrade from free shipping

Tag 18

Sorry guys not the greatest tag, but wanted to get something up to keep the game moving.
This race shop was originally home of Travis Carter Motorsports, later Haas-Carter Motorsports, and now one of the buildings isused by a Busch team, and other is home to a 2 (sometimes 3) car second Tier Ford cup team. Interestingly enough it is across the highway from another former cup shop, now a very good body shop owned by a former cup team owner.I had to take the picture from the lot next door, as there is a gate controlling access to the shops. Any view will do.

Know by sight, I passed it a million times when I commuted from Hickory to Greensboro.
I am out until Tuesday.
