Bashas' Supermarkets 200

 
FRIDAY NIGHT – UNDER THE LIGHTS!

Friday night brought hot temperatures and even hotter action as the Nationwide series headed to the one-mile superspeedway in Phoenix for the Bashas' Supermarkets 200. Team ABF Racing headed into this weekend with a lot of anticipation. Jason Leffler, pilot of the #38 Camry, has been strong at this track in the Nationwide series, and has won on it in several other racing series. 18-year-old James Buescher made his Nationwide Series debut in Phoenix in the #32 car.

O'Reilly 300 at Texas

Does anyone know a "Don't Rain" dance?  For the fourth time in seven races, rain made an unwelcome appearance. As a result, qualifying was cancelled so teams had only one practice session before the race. The starting lineup was once again set by points, so even though Team ABF Racing was fast during practice, with Brian Vickers posting a top five time, he and the #32 Camry started 19th and Jason Leffler in the #8 car started 14th.

The Weather Was NICE!!!
For what seemed like the first time this season, the weather actually cooperated as the Nationwide Series headed to the concrete superspeedway in Nashville, Tennessee. Both Jason Leffler and Denny Hamlin of Team ABF Racing were looking to bring home one of the coolest trophies on the circuit; a custom Les Paul designed Gibson guitar. Leffler already has one guitar from his first win in the 2004 Nationwide Series in Nashville. Hamlin has finished as high as third at the track, but has yet to visit Victory Lane.

Free Tools for Realtors

U-Pack and realtors share a common interest. We are both in the business of moving people out of one home and into another one.

Recently U-Pack was mentioned in Realtor Rightings, the Magazine of the Arkansas Realtors® Association. An article titled "Free Tools for Realtors" gave several tools that realtors can utilize on their web sites to improve the services provided to people that are buying and selling homes.

Rain Rain Go Away!!!
For the 3rd time in five weeks, weather became the biggest factor for the race weekend. Due to rain, Thursday's practice and Qualifying were once again rained out, giving Team ABF Racing only one practice before taking the green flag on Saturday, and setting the starting field by the NASCAR rulebook. This meant that even though Kyle Busch in the #32 car was fourth fastest in practice, and Jason Leffler struggled in the #38 to a 20th place speed, based on last years owner points, Jason would start the race in 8th and Kyle in 14th. 

Unusual Weekend at the Atlanta Motor Speedway

SNOW!

Team ABF Racing set their sights on the Nicorette 300 at the super-fast Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend. NASCAR standout Brian Vickers piloted the #32 ABF U-Pack Toyota, while Nationwide series regular Jason Leffler was behind the wheel of the #38 Braun Racing Camry as usual. The good news is that they didn't have the rains that they had in California to contend with. The bad news is that the temperature was below freezing for much of the weekend, and qualifying was cancelled due to SNOW!!!

More than Moving

When I talk to customers on the phone, one of the challenges is "listening between the lines". We help figure out what you need to do and how U-Pack can make that happen.

Some customers just need a moving quote from City A to City B in different states. Those calls are the most straight forward, although I do hear some funny stories at times- like a caller with an exotic bird that "doesn't fly and it doesn't fly" (don't feel bad, it took me about 15 seconds to catch up with what she meant, too). She wanted to use U-Pack so she could drive herself and her pet in the comfort of her own car.

A Tough Weekend in Vegas
Team ABF Racing headed to Las Vegas this weekend, as Brian Vickers returned to the track in the #32 along with Jason Leffler, who is piloting the #38 full time for Braun Racing.  Both cars were carrying ABF as an associate sponsor.  While both drivers came to Vegas hoping to win big, lady luck was not on their side.

Headed West - Week Two California

Brian Vickers and the ABF U-Pack Toyota Camry did not compete this week.  However, the #32 fielded this week by Kyle Busch, on loan from Joe Gibbs Racing, and the #38, fielded as always by Nationwide star Jason Leffler and carrying the major associate sponsorship of ABF, both took to the track for an unusual and prolonged race weekend.

Packing for Storage

If I'm storing my items, what should I take with me?

This question may seem like it's fairly easy to answer, but moving can be stressful so it's easy see how you might do something like accidentaly pack up your passport two weeks before leaving the country!  I recommend that before you pack for storage, you make a list to avoid forgetting something important – if you're doing container storage, once it's in storage it may not be possible to gain access to it.  Although everyone's list will vary, this list may prove helpful:

Season Opener at Daytona International Speedway

Close Call
Brian Vickers had more than one close call while piloting the ABF Toyota Camry this weekend. During final practice Brian veered left onto the infield to avoid a multi-car collision. At the same time, teammate Jason Leffler made a similar move, which meant that two of Braun Racings three entries for Daytona were spinning in what looked to be a synchronized maneuver at over 180mph! Thankfully, both cars escaped with little or no damage, and the teams decided to park both cars and save them for qualifying.

It's a Packing Party!

The decisions that cause people to move usually involve family matters or career changes. While this can be an exciting time, it can also be hard to leave your friends behind. But you're too busy to have a going away party, right?  Between sorting, packing, and cleaning your schedule is booked solid.

"What the heck is a linear foot"?

This question (worded one way or another) is probably asked by U-Pack customers more than any other question. However, even when I answer that it is one foot of length by eight feet wide by nine feet tall I still get "Huh?". I think that a mental picture is worth a thousand words of explanation.
