Five-time NHRA Top Fuel winner Rod Fuller piloted the yellow-and-black HOLT CAT dragster during the 22nd annual O’Reilly Fall Nationals. David Powers Motorsports and San Antonio-based HOLT CAT partnered for the Dallas event, Sept. 20 to 23, at Texas Motorplex.

On Aug.15, employees at the Ransome CAT headquarters in Bensalem, Pa., were treated to an ice cream social with special guests from the NHRA, “Hot” Rod Fuller and Kenny “Captain Chaos” Koretsky. Employees spent the afternoon getting autographs from the drivers and their teams and examining the dragster and the stock car up close.

Contractor LA Fuller & Sons of Amarillo, TX, recently had two options for bidding a large water improvement project in nearby Plainview. They could submit a proposal to do the job by open-cut construction, a method with which they have extensive experience, or to bid the job as a mostly trenchless project, employing horizontal directional drilling to install the pipe. It might have been easier for Fuller & Sons to choose the cut-and-cover option, since it had never installed water pipe with a directional drill.
