Farmers offer Rep. Welch an earful on federal price support

Posted on August 18, 2011 |
By Michelle Monroe (St. Albans Messenger) and Andrea Suozzo

The event featured separate competitions for 4-cylinder, 6-cylinder and 8-cylinder engines, as well as a minivan round and a pick-up truck round. Here, sports reporter Andy Kirkaldy gives a rundown of the popular event.
