Mr. Taft,

 I just wanted to send you a quick email showing my appreciation for your website and all the work you've put into it. It really is a great site and I find myself getting lost in your photos all the time. I attached a few photos from an event I went to at Stafford Motor Speedway in Stafford Springs, CT. back in August of 1988. I dont remember who won the event for I was only 3 at the time. The ticket stub says TNT Renegades Monster Truck challenge, and you can see all the rigs in the background of the more famous trucks (USA-1, King Crunch, Bigfoot, Stomper, etc.) Hope these pictures are helpful, keep up the great work, and let me know if youd like some more, for I've been going to the events at stafford for the last 4 years, including the upcoming show this Saturday the 28th. Thanks.
