PRESTONSBURG For the third consecutive year, C&S Signs, Prestonsburg, has Floyd County dirt track driver Chuckie May's No. 28 car covered in graphics. May, of Allen, races throughout Eastern Kentucky, and plans on keeping a busy schedule this season.
Doing the graphics on May's car were Donald Blackburn and Tim VanDine.
Blackburn has been with C&S the longest of the two, over three years. VanDine has been at C&S for 15 months. Getting May's car finished was a nice accomplishment for the duo and the entire staff at C&S Signs.
"We worked on Chuckie's car for three weeks," said VanDine. "We're all real pleased with the way it turned out and so is Chuckie. I think out of all the times we'e done his car, this one is the best yet."
VanDine said C&S averages putting graphics on May's car four times per year. Prior to this year, C&S last put graphics and lettering on May's car last fall. May then raced just few races on that car with the new graphics. May has two cars.
Sponsors on May's car include C&S Signs, May Truck Parts, May Block, Miller Brothers Coal, Honda of Prestonsburg, D.J.'s Lawn Service, B&C Trucking, Corona Cigarettes, TEM Equipment, Eastco Supply, Star Welding, Wham Steam Cleaning, Nova Incorporated, Kenny's Florist, Draines Unlimited, Reynolds Truck Equipment, Lonesome Pine International Raceway and Glenn David May for Floyd County PVA.
C&S made all of the graphics on May's car.
"March 8 marked the three-year anniversary of us doing Chuckie's car," said Blackburn.
Another Late Model the guys at C&S just got finished putting graphics on was the No. 17 of Shannon Thornsberry, another Floyd County driver. The Prestonsburg signs and graphics shop is also in the process of beginning work on the Modifieds of Jim Allen and Chris Click, also both Floyd Countians. Another Late Model just recently completed along with Thornsberry¹s was the No. 27 of Inez native and Mountain Motorsports driver Rodney Hamilton.
The No. 28 May car will be on display when C&S has its Open House this spring, along with the machines of other drivers who have left the design work to the Prestonsburg business. The date of the event has yet to be announced.
As for May himself, he plans on keeping a busy race schedule this season, driving for the top spot wherever he goes.
"We¹ll keep busy this year, that's for sure," said May.
Early stops for May will include Eldora Speedway in Ohio as well as an in-state stop in Isom.
