With the cooperation of WHO Radio, The Big Show and FFA, Titan Tire has developed a tire specifically designed for tractor rides. This tire is a conventional R-1 with a solid rib down the center known as CRCR Technology. The CRCR or Comfort Ride Center Rib provides an extremely smooth ride and improves lug wear for those long days on the road.
Contact Linda Adamson at Titan Tire for ordering details.

Hello Tractor Drivers!
The cold winds and the snow of the winter season are here so there is nothing better than a one day Tractor Ride with Bob Quinn and WHO Radio!
Bob Quinn needs to get it out on the road for a day trip. So we thought…. how about a One Day Tractor Ride on Friday, February 22, 2013 around the Amana Colonies.
Starting at 9am and ending around 3pm.
Plan to join us for another fun and exciting noon hour Announcement Party with the Big Show at the Iowa Machine Shed Restaurant on Friday, January 25 from 11:30 am to 1 pm, sponsored by Titan Tire and the the Iowa Machine Shed Restaurant. Plan on coming early and staying for all the fun!
As always, we'll have the big announcement shortly after The Big show hits the air at 11:30.
Tractor Ride registrations will be available at the Machine Shed on the 25th and WHO Radio staff will take your registration and payments during the Announcement Party. The cost for the basic Tractor Ride is $135.
Please decide in advance how many extra t-shirts you want for your family & friends as we'll need that information at the time of registration.
Since we received so much positive feedback on the color-coded group strategy we used for the 2012 Ride, we'll be using the system again in 2013.
Looking forward in seeing everyone on the 25th!
