Starting your own NASCAR team, even in the lower Camping World Truck tier, can be extremely expensive. One of your biggest expenses will be the heavy- and medium-duty trucks and trailers that you will need to haul your race and show cars in.

Every year, my husband and I vacation for a few days at a mountain resort. This year, we encountered numerous obstacles that might have prevented us from enjoying this special time together. My spouse’s father needed surgery. I suffered an unexpected brief illness as well. When we were finally ready to go on our trip, my husband took our car for a tune-up.
