25 If you zoom in, there are a lot of cars there.
28 This happens at least once on every Stampede: A truck or SUV driver who tries to join in on our fun by, get this...trying to out-run us! The truck this time had an unleashed dog on its flat bed. The dog initially enjoyed the higher speeds, but then became visibly scared as he realized he may not be able to hold on. Meanwhile, the Tourmaster was wondering if this dog was soon to become a hood ornament on his car. Luckily, we managed to pass this driver quickly and saved him (and his dog) from hurting himself.
